50 to 1 (2014) Rated PG-13

50 to 1A group of misfit cowboys take their crooked-footed racehorse to the Kentucky Derby. Based on the true story of Mine That Bird. Starring Skeet Ulrich, Christian Kane, William Devane, Madelyn Deutch.

This is the interesting story of a racehorse that started from behind to finish first. Honestly, the best character in the movie was the racehorse. It was his film even with the colorful cowboys who helped get him to the winner’s circle. The mixture of comedy and drama keeps the film interesting, even if it didn’t always work. Since I did not see Mine that Bird‘s Kentucky run, I was in suspense watching the outcome.  The story was not as cohesive as it could have been, but it is still worth a watch.
