Movie of the Year

This is easily the best feel-good movie of the decade. Great acting with heightened suspense that leaves you on the edge of your seat with your fists clenched and just waiting to cheer - which many viewers did. Tremendous job by Disney and well-deserving of the applause at the end. How many movies can do that to an audience?! Finally, a movie worth the time and money - and then some.

Greatest movie I've seen all year!

Really enjoyed watching this movie. The race scenes scared me senseless; I could just see the jockey plummeting to his death. Some parts sad, some funny, but all together a good time. The husband wasn't all that committed, which was a shame he couldn't have gotten on the bandwagon with her.
