Engaging, deep, sensitive, brutal, uplifting!! Seabiscuit is a beautiful story of survival of three men and one beautiful animal. The Biscuit needs each man with their own individual strengths, and makes all three 'strong' again. Tobey is fantastic in the portral of Red, and I can't get enough of Chris Cooper!! Bridges is at his best, showing the very human side of 'BIG' business. Fabulous movie, fit for the entire family!

Corny, but Good

Everybody likes a success story, but this one goes way out of its way to make you sympathize with and root for the main characters. There's just something about it that's not quite right. Yes, the cinematography is very good and the movie is technically very well made...
Everybody likes a success story, but this one goes way out of its way to make you sympathize with and root for the main characters. There's just something about it that's not quite right. Yes, the cinematography is very good and the movie is technically very well made, but the dialogue is extremely cheesy and the story tries to go in too many directions. The villians are almost cartoonish and the comic relief found in William H. Macy's character is more annoying than funny. The horse races are well shot and the horse probably gives the best performance in the movie as actors who generally turn in good performances are trapped in a bad screenplay. Overall, this is a good movie, but it is in no way worthy of its Oscar nomination.

    Boo

    Cinematography doesn't necessarily make a movie. The entire movie is a shallow waste of celluloid, focusing on what happens instead of the emotions involved. It is a shame that the director of the Amazing 'Pleasantville' would do an awful, repetitive, boring piece of garbage like this; the worst movie of 2003, by far
