Very paint by numbers underdog story. This film doesn't do anything very innovative or different, a lot of the events and dialogue can be seen coming from a mile away. It is still somewhat enjoyable to watch even though it is extremely pedestrian.

Red Pollard (Tobey Maguire), Charles S. Howard (Jeff Bridges), and Tom Smith (Chris Cooper) all do their part to make a champion out of the horse Seabiscuit. Pace was a bit sluggish with lacks that certain spark to keep each story of the main leads interesting. Score, screenplay, editing, cinematography and performances were amazing. Best line was from Red - "You know, everyone thinks we got this broken down horse and fixed him, but we didn't. He fixed us. Every one of us. And I guess in a way, we fixed each other, too." Seabiscuit is one of the best inspirational drama's you can find. "You don't throw a whole life away just 'cause he's banged up a little bit." A nice flick to watch when your feeling down.

Another in the long line of 'inspirational, based on a true story' films. It's on par with this type of movie. Good for what it is, but nothing special.

Charles Howard purchases a horse named Seabiscuit that no one seems to have any faith in. Yet, through training, Charles Howard, along with Red Pollard and Tom Smith manage to bring Seabiscuit from rags to riches as the horse quickly becomes the most popular horse in America.
I was not expecting much from this film, and the first 20 minutes did little to help my expectations. Rushed, cluttered, and even confusing, the first 20 minutes of Seabiscuit not quite atrocious, but it's pretty bad. Still, once Seabiscuit …
