Every Second Counts ***
11 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Interesting but cliché film dealing with a rodeo family. The father was injured in an accident some years before and that ended his career.

Mom works as a waitress in a restaurant while the daughter dreams of becoming a vet while doing some ride competing for the family to earn dollars.

Dad loses his job and it looks like the daughter will never get to college to pursue her dreams as she is dropping out. I love the way she drops back in by handing in her extra credit project to gain a scholarship and then catch up on the work she missed. Before all this, she tutors a boy in biology and love blossoms.

With the horses conking out, dad suddenly is able to ride again and prevail. Daddy had lost his job as a repair person for not being that responsible on the job.

We've seen this before. I gave it *** for those who like riding but really this is a **1/2 production.
