Over the past few days we have been getting quite a bit of rain due to Tropical Storm Beryl.
So what does The Not So Perfect Housewife do on a rainy day??
She curls up on the couch and starts to watch a few movies.
Now, I haven’t been a big follower of the Flicka movies, but I do love a good horse movie, so since I had a review copy of the new Flicka:Country Pride.. why not have a looksy..
As I sat watching this movie the first thought that came to mind was “wow.. this is actually a really NICE movie”..
No cussing, no major teen attitudes, no major dramatic love interests, just a good family movie.
Few and fewer movies are made theses days for families that just want to sit and watch a good wholesome movie together. Yet, Flicka fits the bill on this one.
There is your normal conflict and resolution and even a ‘little’ romance in the story line, but it’s all done in such a way that lessons are learned and the core character qualities of truthfulness, kindness, and friendship are exemplified.
If you’re looking for a good family movie that the WHOLE family can watch, I highly suggest adding Flick:Country Pride to your collection.
Country Music Superstar Clint Black and his wife Lisa Hartman Black shine in the Heartwarming Family Adventure
Exclusively at Walmart, Sam’s Club® and Walmart.com
From the pages of Mary O’Hara’s popular novel My Friend Flicka, the year’s most inspiring coming of age story arrives just in time for Mother’s Day when Flicka: Country Pride gallops on to Blu-ray and DVD May 1 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Directed by Michael Damian (Flicka 2, Marley & Me: The Puppy Years), Flicka: Country Pride stars country music superstar Clint Black (Flicka 2), Lisa Hartman Black (“Knots Landing”) and Kacey Rohl (“The Killing”) in a heartwarming adventure for the entire family.
When Toby (Black) takes on a job at a stable with Flicka in tow, the owner’s teenage daughter Kelly (Rohl), quickly bonds with the wild horse. A budding equestrian rider, she hopes to break Flicka for an upcoming competition, despite her mother’s (Hartman Black) disapproval. With the competition approaching, a rival trainer stealing business, and a growing fear they may be forced to sell the stable, Toby steps in to turn things around for Kelly and her mother.
Grammy Award® Winner Clint Black is one of country music’s superstars with over 20 million albums sold worldwide. Having written over 100+ songs including 23 #1 songs Clint is an active philanthropist overseeing numerous charities.
Not only is the story filled with good family values, but according to Director Michael Damian, working behind the scenes was just as rewarding. Damian commented, “Directing Flicka: Country Pride was a wonderful experience for me! Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black poured their hearts into the characters they played and brought genuine warmth and deep emotion to the film. My wife Janeen and I are blessed to have an incredible professional relationship, which is a rare and precious thing. So for us, it was wonderful to see a celebrity couple like Clint and Lisa working together with such love and respect. Their high regard for Christian values and dedication to their family is an inspiration. They are a true Hollywood success story.”
The Flicka: Country Pride Blu-ray and DVD has two behind-the-scenes featurettes on the making of the film and a never-before-seen music video. Available at 4,000 Walmart and Sam’s Club locations nationwide and in Canada, both the Blu-ray and DVD are now available for pre-order exclusively at Walmart.com.
