A girl’s dream to become a jockey seems to get closer when she buys and unwanted, losing racehorse. Her mother is against the idea of her daughter being a jockey since her husband died doing the same thing. So the girl works with a trainer and another rider to make the horse into the champion she knows he is. Oh, and did I mention this girl can also talk to horses and hears them talk back? Yeah, it is kinda crazy and boring and cheesy, but overall not one of the worst DCOM’s we have seen, but not one you definitely need to see.
In this reboot of the classic Herbie movies of the 60s, Lindsay Lohan plays Maggie, a girl whose dream is to be a Nascar driver. Of course, her father will not allow this. It seems like Maggie may be done with her dream after she had a bad crash years ago. But once she meets Herbie and discovers the car can race, Maggie is thrown back into the racing world and discovers she still has racing in her blood. The movie isn’t a total bust. It turned out a little better than I thought, but overall, meh.
The story of this movie is actually pretty interesting. Based off of a true story, JB, a sports agent travels to India to find some cricket athletes to bring back to America to become baseball players. This is done in the hopes of turning the market of the cricket fans in India to also become fans of American baseball. Another one of those movies that we are glad we have seen once but don’t really need to watch it again, but could. Young kids may get bored. But, if you are into baseball, you will really like the movie. If you aren’t, like us, it is a good story anyway.
In a time where golf was considered a sport only for gentlemen, Francis Ouimet, a poor lower class boy, fights to be able to become a championship golfer and compete in the U.S. Open. Based off of a true story, the movie held it’s own and was pretty good. We were entertained and loved the attitude of Francis’s little caddy boy. While it isn’t one that we feel everyone must see, it is one that we think you might enjoy seeing if you haven’t already even if you don’t like golf or watching golf.
The first of many many sequels to Air Bud, this movie is about the same young boy as the first movie and his dog. This time taking on football instead of basketball. And instead of a clown who wants Air Bud for himself, we have a couple of Russian circus owners trying to kidnap Buddy. They are pretty much the slapstick comedy relief that kids like. You know, believing that a dog is on a basketball team is crazy enough, but that was far more believable than people letting a dog join a kids football team. Of course, Buddy will help them win, dogs can run faster and no one is going to full on tackle a dog. How is this fair? Well, the dog is still cute.
