Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that despite a few corny lines, this is a wholesome family movie with heart that's guaranteed to appeal to horse-loving kids. Although Katy's rebellious nature is at the core of the story (which is based on the classic kids' novel My Friend Flicka), there are consequences to her actions, and her family comes together at the end and learns to communicate in a respectful way. There are refreshingly few references to sex (it is an animal movie, after all), and few instances of crude or cringe-worthy behavior.
A girl falls from a horse, causing injuries and bruises; a horse is attacked by a wild animal, and blood is shown.
Pretty mild: "Damn," "hell," "bitch," "ass," "frickin'."
The movie has some good lessons about respect, obedience, and family expectations.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Some drinking and smoking in a bar scene.
