Do Yourself a Favor and Trot Away Slowly.
6 July 2002 | by tfrizzellSee all my reviews

Bobcat Goldthwait becomes an over-night success with the help of his late father's talking horse (voiced by John Candy) in this short little comedy that is pretty short on everything---including laughs. Dabney Coleman is wasted as the comic-book-styled villain. A typical "Mr. Ed" idea that lacks creativity and spunk. Flat from its starting point. 2 stars out of 5.
