A Real Tear Puller

From the point of view of a girl aged 7-9, who loves horses, I don't think there 's any doubt that this is a 5 star movie. Older viewers may find some faults, but I would be surprised if young girls do not adore it. As one 9 year Amazon reviewer put it, "second chances is a gggggrrrrreat mmmovviieee and a real tearpuller." Young viewers will probably not notice that Ginger, the female horse, acquires a penis now and then. Or, if they do notice, they probably won't care.
