At the final competition, as the little girl is walking from her dad back to Grace (Julia Roberts), the announcer calls the name of one of the horses, "Have a Heart". This is the title of another hit song by Bonnie Raitt (original singer of "Something to Talk About"). See more »
No matter how determined Caroline was to ride Possum, under Grand Prix rules she would not have been able to compete in the Under 14s on a 16hh horse. Her own age, height and weight would, under their safety regulations, have prevented her from riding a horse that's too big for her. Caroline is only nine years old and a big horse like Possum would have been too much for her to handle, especially since she had no previous experience riding him. See more »
Any interest in the movies' characters is SOLELY provided by Krya Sedgwick as the wise-cracking, potty-mouthed sister of the lead actress..can't place her name right now.
Anyway, the lead finds out her husband (Dennis Quaid) is cheating, and this comes as a surprise to her even after it was pointed out that his nickname in college was 'Hound Dog'.
Possibly she thought it was her duty to not see his indiscretions. She was raised in a town very concerned with two things - doing the right thing, and talking about it when someone else is caught doing the wrong thing. Her parents (Robert Duvall and Gena Rowlands, who make any movie they are in better than it normally would have been) are in denial as well, about life in general but mostly about their own relationship.
Nothing much really happens. In that way it reminded me a little of 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape', but that was never boring for a minute.
Soundtrack is distracting - each new scene begins with a swell of music, so if you're falling asleep, just listen for the music..that's the start of the next, and hopefully better, scene.
But take my advice - it doesn't get any better. My heart goes out to Kyra, whose work is wasted in this boring vehicle.
