Like a Hallmark TV Movie crossed with Plan 9 From Outer Space
Wow. I had low expectations for Horse Dancer, but this movie was much worse than I had expected.
This film is like a cross between Hallmark TV Movies and Plan 9 from Outer Space.
The acting in this movie was not at the level of most high school productions. Richard Karn (of Tool Time) and Rachel Sowers (who plays Lisa in this movie) can act but the rest of the cast is awful. From the credits it seems like the director simply recruited children in his church to be in the movie.
The plot and action have many unrealistic elements to it - in particular a lengthy 'police search and rescue' scene that had my wife and I howling with laughter.
In the first few minutes, the main character receives a letter -at her gym (huh?) - notifying her as to whether or not she made the US Olympic team. (Isn't that usually announced at the trials?) She doesn't open the letter, takes it home and tells her Mom she received the letter. Her Mom advises her to discuss the letter with Grandma and then leaves to go to work. (I mean, if the characters don't care about this life-changing letter then why should we?)
At the climax of the movie, the stunt double has a body type that is so completely different than the actress she subs for, that it destroys the scene.
There are scenes where kids sing campfire songs -without any point and without furthering the action. Just... campfire songs. Really compelling stuff, Not.
And on and on. One of the worst movies of the century.
