A Lesson To Be Learned...
29 March 1999 | by (Markham,Ontario) – See all my reviews

I found this movie in a Laser Disc deleted blow-out bin for .50cents!! I bought it along with 75 other titles. "Dark Horse is a heartwarming story about a highschool girl whose father played by "Ed Begley Jr." relocates them to a small town. She gets mixed up with the wrong group of friends & she gets into some trouble. She then has to work at a horse ranch as part of her punishment. I really enjoyed this movie. "Ari Meyers" is really good in playing "Ed Begley Jr." daughter (Allison Mills). She is a very good actress with alot of talent.This film has a valuable lesson to be learned. This movie is a .50cent gold mine!!!!!!
