Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average There are enough high points to keep it from being discarded out-of-hand, but not sufficient consistency to warrant anything more than a reluctant and lukewarm recommendation.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent This is one of the year's best films.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 173 moviegoers:
WOW! These are FANTASTIC REVIEWS from all ages, both males and females! "Secretariat" is a MUST SEE MOVIE!

I love movies like this that show how useless the reviews of professional critic are compared to moviegoer reviews. Their reviews range from excellent to average. Only Roger Ebert got it right.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Based on the remarkable true story, SECRETARIAT chronicles the spectacular journey of the 1973 Triple Crown winner. Housewife and mother Penny Chenery (DIANE LANE) agrees to take over her ailing father's Virginia-based Meadow Stables, despite her lack of horse-racing knowledge. Against all odds, Chenery—with the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (JOHN MALKOVICH)—manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years and what may be the greatest racehorse of all time.
