Rated NR

Mary O’Hara wrote the novel in 1941. Then in 1943, director Harold Schuster adapted the book into a film starring Roddy McDowall as the horse-loving boy. Now another Flicka-centered flick graces the big screen with Alison Lohman and her long auburn locks assuming little Roddy’s role, this time as a horse-loving tomboy. On the family quarterhorse ranch in Wyoming (which is really New Zealand), Lohman’s character defies all rules and regulations set by her disciplinarian dad (Tim McGraw). Instead of writing a school essay, she sneaks out to use her horse-whispering skills to break an off-limits wild mustang, Flicka. Since times are tough, Dad sells the unruly horse to a rodeo manager, which triggers an avalanche of outlandish events. While the luscious landscapes might make you want to strap on leather chaps and a cowboy hat, the corny sentiments and the been-there, done-that plot will make you want a refund.
