Disjointed
27 September 2017 | by Jackbv123See all my reviews

When I saw the story-line for this, I thought that here was a story with some heartwarming possibilities. The disjointed delivery of the story didn't deliver.

Of course you can guess where the story is going after you get into it, but it wandered while getting there and transitions weren't smooth. I think part of the problem was that there were too many characters that the film tried to focus on. Either Lilly or Claire would have made a great central character, but while the film leaned toward Claire, it was still divided and Sneed's performance just wasn't good enough, even for a 13 year old. Given the actors, I would have rather seen Claire minimized and have Lilly be the central focus. Either way, I think I would have found a stronger focus on either compelling but as was, I just didn't get drawn in.

One of the central plot points, which was the deal made for the loan on Cal's ranch, was confusing. It really didn't make sense, but then neither did the fact that Cal didn't win a huge lawsuit for negligence from his accident thus negating the need for the loan.

You might have expected a romance, but there really isn't one.

The two actors with the longest resumes were big disappointments. Both Perry and Assante coasted through the film with little conviction.

I think there were supposed to be moments of comedy with arrogant Marzo trying to train the horse and later with the color commentator at the contest. Marzo just fell flat and the commentator was so annoying, I couldn't stand it and had to fast forward through much of it.
