Goofs

The family drives to the farm in Virginia, in 1969, in a blue 1961 Chevrolet Bel Air with Virginia plates. When they are preparing to leave, the husband says he had the flight moved up. When all except the wife leave, they do so in the same Bel Air. It appears they drove (not flew) from Colorado to Virginia, as a 1961 car would not have been a rental at an airport in 1969 due to the age of the car - rentals are always late model cars less than 2-3 years old, so it is unclear how they drove to and from the farm in that car.

Quotes

Penny Chenery: More than three thousand years ago a man named Job complained to God about all his troubles and the Bible tells us that God answered. Do you give the horse its strength or clothe its neck with a flowing mane? Do you make him leap like a locust, striking terror with his proud snorting?

Wonderful movie
2 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Secretariat is not only the first film in many years where both old and young can share the same theater; it contains the elements that make you both laugh and cry as most good movies should. From peaceful mornings at sunrise we experience exhilarating horse racing that brings pensive waiting for results of a race already in the history books.

I agree with the Movieguide comments: "SECRETARIAT is a very uplifting, inspiring, exciting movie about a true story, the story of a determined woman who raises one of the most successful, dynamic racehorses of all time. SECRETARIAT is stirring and joyful, with many references to God, Jesus Christ and the Bible and a pro-capitalist message celebrating American values…" Now, what's wrong with this picture? It is refreshingly entertaining.
