Rated R for a few instances of rough-mouthing.
The 31st episode of Scoring At The Movies tears the layers back on our first horse-racing flick…and maybe the only “and they’re off” movie we’ll ever review. Tobey Maguire, Jeff Bridges and Chris Cooper are very solid, although the world-class awesome Elizabeth Banks is miscast and wasted way too much for our liking. This prestige production is an old-school crowd-pleaser that generally pleased this crowd of 2 people. There are issues though and writer/director Gary Ross’ dialogue & narration lay it on thicker than 75 coats of paint. Maybe that’s just a flaw in Laura Hillenbrand’s book? Anyway, the movie is still worth seeing (even if some people “can’t SEE out there”) and this podcast is most definitely worth hearing (out there).
