Seabiscuit

SeabiscuitClick to buy this item from Amazon!

Seabiscuit was born to race but never really learned what it would be like if he was a winner. They trained him to do exactly what he was told to.. he lost. But then a new couple looking for a race horse saw something in him that they thought he would win.

More About This Movie

This movie is based on an inspiring true story from Laura Hillebrand's book of the same name. The story is set in a very difficult time period--The Great Depression. The hopes of a nation are pinned on this underdog horse.

Parts of this story are very sad and some are disturbing. It will take you on an emotional roller coaster.

It may not be appropriate for young girls. It is rated PG-13, and there is nudity, profanity, and some violence. Parents can get more details at the review site Kids-In-Mind.com.

WARNING!
by: Anonymous

I almost let my 12 yo daughter watch this because of the review here, but then I checked Screenit. I am so glad I did! My husband and I wouldn't even watch this!

I hesitate in posting this somewhat graphic review excerpt, but since so many commenters seem to be endorsing it, I thought I should warn the moms here. Excerpt from Screenit.com:

PROFANITY

At least 10 "s" words, 12 hells, 4 S.O.B.s, 3 craps, 3 d*mns, 6 uses of "G-d*mn," 4 of "Jesus Christ," 2 of "Oh my G*d" and 1 of "Christ's sakes."

SEX/NUDITY (Heavy)

We see women who are presumably hookers in Tijuana as the narrator talks about people going there for "companionship."

Miscellaneous people drink, including some who pour booze into a woman's cleavage and then hold a man upside down so that he can drink from her cleavage as she stands.

We briefly see some people in what looked like their undergarments on the street in a piggyback race (nothing explicit).

We see Johnny and a hooker lying on a bed (apart) talking. She comments that he paid her and then asks, "You wanna, you know, get going?" (have sex). He says yes, we see her lower her lingerie top (we see her bare back and maybe a fleeting, brief glimpse of part of the side of her bare breast) and he stares at her, but we don't see anything happen between them.

Some pin-up drawings on a wall show women in varying degrees of revealing attire (some of which show cleavage).

Not for kids
by: Anonymous

This movie has some stuff that isn't appropriate for kids. Like some cuss words and "Adult" actions. I recommend it for 13 and up.

A must watch
by: John

I've seen this movie a number of times and it always brings a tear to my eyes. A great family movie with real values.

P.s: My girlfriend thinks we are all a bunch of sooky la la's. What would she know.

OK
by: SOMEONE

The movie took ages to start! I reckon the start is a bit more for adults than kids. I've seen better movies.

THE BEST

Seabiscuit is my favorite horse movie. He goes through so much pain, and misunderstanding, but he still ends up at the top. :)
If you haven't seen this movie, see it NOW!

Stunning, not just the theme.
by: Denna

I may be too old for crying when watching movies, but this makes me cry every time. Not that it's too sad but because of their beautiful friendship. And the picture is great, and the actors too. I'm happy that finally there's a big movie about horses, a really good one! All other movies is either very old or made for children.

If you haven't seen this one, you really missed something!
