Flicka DVD Review

Based on the children's book, My Friend Flicka by Mary O'Hara, Flicka stars Alison Lohman and hits theatres today. Check out Kidzworld's review right here!


Flicka - A Four-Legged Friend

Katy (Alison Lohman) spends most of her school days daydreaming about taking over her dad's horse ranch in Wyoming. So it's no wonder that she's flunking out of school! When she comes home for summer vacation, wondering how to break the bad news to her parents, she finds a wild mustang in the mountains and names it Flicka, which means "beautiful young girl" in Swedish. Against everyone's wishes, she keeps the horse, but only if she can complete her school project and avoid a failing grade.


Flicka - Back in the Saddle Again

Katy sets her sights on turning the wild horse into a riding horse, which isn't an easy job for anyone, especially a 16 year-old. After countless cuts, jabs and bruises from being thrown off the horse, Katy's dad (played by country singer Tim McGraw) sells Flicka to the rodeo, causing all sorts of family chaos. But Katy and her older brother (Summerland's Ryan Kwanten) hatch a risky plan to get Flicka back. It turns out Katy's latest plan is even crazier than trying to tame a wild horse - think it'll work?


Flicka - DVD Features

There aren't a ton of features on the Flicka DVD, but enough to keep you content. Catch the music video for Tim McGraw's song, My Little Girl, watch a few deleted scenes and some great bloopers. Once you've rolled through the extras, you'll still have plenty of time to go for a horseback ride!


Flicka - Is it Worth it?

The movie version is pretty different from the book, which is actually about a young boy named Ken, but it has its fair share of tear-jerking moments. We suggest you read the book first and then check out the movie - on DVD.

What's Better - the Movie or the Book?

  • The movie.
  • The book.
  • Both are good.
  • Both suck.
