Product Description

A great American story from Academy Award®-nominated† filmmaker Gary Ross, Seabiscuit stars Tobey Maguire, Jeff Bridges and Chris Cooper. Based on the inspiring true story of three men – a jockey, a trainer and a businessman – and the undersized racehorse who took the entire nation on the ride of a lifetime. This breathtaking film achievement is “a must-see moviegoing experience” (Chicago Sun-Times) and “a flat-out great movie!” (Larry King Live, CNN)

This film has many of the qualities of an epic: exceptional production values & cast that place it in the same class as "Braveheart" or "Gangs Of New York". I see no reason why it would not be appropriate for kids, either. Like "Cold Mountain", another epic, I feel this movie is meant to be enjoyed without too much analysis. I particularly enjoyed Jeff Bridges' performance, having just watched him in a very different role in "Masked and Anonymous" in which he plays a Woodstock-era reporter. His promotional tours on behalf of a Sea Biscuit-War Admiral matchup are effective. Toby McGuire is also quite good as the troubled,hard-luck jockey, blind in one eye, who spends his off hours spinning foreign tall tales with his jockey friends; so is the humorous radio reporter and also real-life jockey Gary Stevens. The movie's first hour is filled with quite a bit of Depression-era history which adds to the bravura of the film, as do the later Mexican segments. It is perhaps historically inaccurate to portray Seabiscuit as an underdog, however, he was equal in size, I have read somewhere, to War Admiral. The movie, however, emphasizes that the trainer takes hard luck cases like Seabiscuit, who was lazy, and turns them into winners. Imdb.com has pointed out the numerous anachronisms in the film; they claim,for example, that a statue of Seabiscuit is clearly visible in the Santa Anita Raceway segments, and that the starting gates used in most of the races are historically inaccurate ; I doubt this would be much concern to the average viewer.Read more ›

Having read about Seabiscuit and having been a racing fan for a number of years, I thouroughly enjoyed this movie. I especially thought that Gary Stevens did a wonderful acting job. The racing scenes were quite realistic and the special effects were wonderful. I also liked the bonus features as they gave the viewer an even better idea of what racing was really like. The scenes out at the farm were beautiful and the soundtrack delightful.
If you haven't read the book, this is one of the few cases where I think it might be a better idea to see the movie and then read the book. The book is a bit more detailed and throws the reader into the era better than the movie.
This story is a bit of a fairy tale but back in the 20's and 30's, the world of racing was not like it is today. Jockeys had it really hard and some of that is lost in the translation to the screen. Even today, a jockey's life is not easy and I recommend viewing the documentary "Jockey" as a follow up to this to all interested parties.
My few complaints about "Seabiscuit" are as follows: I happened to see a scene at Santa Anita and lo and behold caught a glimpse of the statue of Seabiscuit that is really there today and wasn't when this movie takes place! I guess the average viewer wouldn't know that but it did insult the intelligence of the true fan!
Secondly, jockey's didn't ride in the same position back then as they do today. Today, the stirrups are so short as the jockey appears to sit on his heels. Back then, knees weren't bent as far, they rode more like a cowboy then a jockey. This should've been corrected as we all know that Gary Stevens could probably ride a horse in any position and do it well!
Thirdly, I didn't feel like it was in the 30's. The Sting did a much better job of giving that aura. This movie did not.
All in all, I did love it!

I originally had my doubts about this movie. I saw the previews and really wasn't that interested. But my dad went and saw this movie and said he was going to buy it when it came out on DVD. Getting my father to go see movies is like pulling teeth and he had never bought a movie before in his life. So naturally this got my curiosity up and I went to see Seabiscuit. I would rank this movie with Citizen Kane and A Beautiful Mind. Don't miss it.

Astonishingly well thought of popcorn populism flick. I can see why it did so well. It hits its target audiences perfectly. There are 2 target audiences for this movie.
The first is the casual movie goer who sees very few movies and for whom going to a movie is a real treat. These folks go to about one movie a month and usually pick something safe, unchallenging and harmless, like Seabiscuit. They are easily pleased because they have modest standards and see so few movies, they don't really know how good movies can really be. Its a big, pretty movie with lots recognizable faces, confortingly stereotypical characters, canned dialogue and a prepackaged ending. Thus, the viewer goes to work and tells everyone there the movie was fun and good to take kids to and thats all most folks need to get the kids out of the house on a Saturday night.
The second target audience is at the exact opposite end of the spectrum. Movie critics. These guys see so many movies all the time, they have no choice but to boil each movie down to its bare essentials. Is it heartfelt? Is it fun? Is it reasonably well acted? Is the cinematography pretty? Does it deliver the goods? The average movie critic sees a movie once, scribbling notes throughout then its off to type up the review and tomorrow is another movie. They have to have a checklist to know what to look for because they haven't time to analyze ever little bit of it. Most filmmakers aren't stupid. They know what critics are looking for and Seabiscuit is almost a welcome relief to critics. It basically does their job for them. The critics write positive reviews and everyone gets what they want.
