And that's about it. It also doesn't help that the whole thing feels so awkward and forced. People laugh when nothing's funny; people smile as if they're posing for a picture; people talk out loud even when nobody's around... It all appears very staged. I half expected to see the words "Wyoming: The Greatest State in the U.S." to flash on-screen, possibly alongside a whip sound effect or a guy shouting "Yee-haw!"
By far the most incriminating aspect of the production is its protagonist. Lohman's character is supposed to come across as sweet but with a "wild spirit." Instead, she simply comes across as annoying. She cries constantly, she never listens to logic or reason, and everything bad that happens in the movie happens solely because of her. The only time my level of excitement would pick up is whenever she'd get bucked off the horse and fall on her ass ("Take that, ya whiney bitch!"). I bet it would be easier to root for her (which apparently we're supposed to) if there was actually some connection between her and the horse. But there isn't. And in turn, the "emotional bond" feels merely like a girl that won't stop bitching about keeping some batshit crazy horse (think of her like a kid at Toys-R-Us - "But daaaaaddy... I waaaaant it! I WANT THE HORSEY!").
All that said, the movie's target audience still might find FLICKA to be a mildly enjoyable distraction. I imagine little girls will get a kick out of it, and some parents will probably tolerate the movie alright, but I can't imagine anybody wanting to own it. There are far better "horse" movies out there (like DREAMER, BLACK BEAUTY, and SEABISCUIT, to name a few).
