"Show me something that is perfect and I'll show you something that is not."

That was my favorite line from the movie. I saw the video at home on Christmas Day. Seabiscuit was an underdog that became a champion of race horses. The line above was said by the owner of Seabiscuit in reference to War Admiral.

I haven't seen it yet so I don't want to read all of them.

The Independent film critic was not impressed;

Nobody will deny that it's a very wholesome entertainment. Should you chance it for a night out? Neigh, neigh, and thrice neigh.

We watched the video twice on Christmas Day and once on the day after Christmas. I am thinking about watching it again. The screenplay made no mention of the jockey (Red Pollard) marrying the nurse who cared for him while he was laid up in the hospital. It was written in such an appealing way. There was actually 5 stories involved (the story of the owner, the trainer, the jockey the horse and the owner's wife). While the story was centered around the horse, the climax of the story was centered around the final race. I have heard nothing but praise from the folks who have seen it. The story was quite diverse. There were fist fights and drinking and gambling and whore houses involved in some parts of the story but none of it seemed to be distasteful. There were also references to literature (including Shakespeare and Dickens). In one scene the owner, trainer, and jockey were all sitting in church.
