Goofs

Before the Belmont Stakes, when Secretariat is being led to the track, someone in the crowd takes his picture with a Kodak Instamatic camera, which would make just one "click" when the picture is taken. The camera makes the sound is that of a single lens reflex (SLR) camera. See more »

Maybe Next Time They'll Make a Movie About Secretariat
2 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie is great for families, as there were a number of children in the theater who really enjoyed the film. There isn't any off-color language or scenes, and it is well acted and well made. My main complaint is that it really seemed to be the Penny Tweedy story, and not that much about Secretariat. If you want to take your children to a well made movie with horses, this is a good film. If you want to learn about the greatest racehorse of the 20th century, go to you tube and watch old clips of the actual horse itself. If you're looking for a good movie about a horse, buy or rent Seabiscuit. That movie tells much more of the story about the horse.
