Is It Any Good?

For a direct-to-DVD "threequel," FLICKA: COUNTRY PRIDE is actually much better than expected. The central actress, Kacey Rohl, is surprisingly good at conveying a sense of grief and Kelly's insecurity around her snobby former best friend. Unlike the Flicka 2 protagonist, who's a bit rough around the edges, Kelly is kind and loving and willing to see the best in people -- she just can't get out from under the weight of her guilt or her grief until Flicka enters her life.

The Blacks are an ideal choice to play a widowed ranch owner and a cowboy with the heart of gold. While Clint is a country singer, not a trained actor, he and Lisa have a believable chemistry (a good thing, since they've been married for more than 20 years!), and the part comes naturally to him. Although there are a few aspects of the story that aren't well developed (the teen romance isn't necessary, and it would have been great to get to know more about the quiet stable hand and Argentinean polo player who join Kelly's team), this is exactly the kind of uplifting movie that everyone in the family can enjoy.
