Our Review... 

It was amazing to visit the Flicka Country Pride movie set! I really enjoyed seeing parts of it being filmed! The horses, scenery and actors were incredible! I loved being able to interview some of the cast. It was awesome how passionate they each were about their characters. Come visit my post HERE of my exciting trip. My family was excited to watch this movie! 

We loved seeing Clint Black, his wife Lisa Hartman Black and their daughter all work together in this film. We have loved all the Flicka movies. It's fun to see how Flicka bonds with Kelly (Rohl) so fast. Flicka basically tells Kelly she wants to train to be a show horse so Kelly starts teaching her to be a jumper. Toby (Black) is a really good guy and helps Kelly and her Mom with their problems. There are a couple romantic parts in the movie too. This is a good family movie, we liked watching it together.

The making of the movie on the special features is pretty cool too. You get to see where they made the film and listen to some of the actors talk about the movie. It has beautiful scenery, I know first hand because I was there!

Tim McGraw in The Blind Side
Tim McGraw is a celebrated country artist, with hugely successful albums and a multitude of award wins. But his first starring film role was actually in 2006’s Flicka! Since then, McGraw has appeared in many successful television shows and movies, the most celebrated of which is 2009’s The Blind Side. In The Blind Side, McGraw played Sean Tuohy opposite Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock.

Dolly Parton in 9 to 5
We all know Dolly Parton for her hit songs like “Jolene” and “I Will Always Love You,” but she is also a fantastic actress! Parton’s very first film role was as buxom secretary, Doralee Rhodes in 1980’s 9 to 5. Not only was Parton nominated for two Golden Globes for her role, but she also wrote and recorded the film’s theme song (also called “9 to 5”), which went on to become number one on both Billboard’s Country and Hot 100 charts. Parton has since starred in many successful films, including The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and Steel Magnolias.

Taylor Swift in Valentine’s Day
Taylor Swift is, at the young age of 22, a beloved country artist with multiplatinum-selling albums and numerous Grammy Awards under her belt. Swift made her film debut in 2010’s star-studded film, Valentine’s Day, as the love-struck high school student, Felicia. For Swift’s comedic role she won the Teen Choice Award for Movie Female Breakout. Swift followed up Valentine’s Day by voicing Audrey in 2012’s The Lorax.

Faith Hill in The Stepford Wives
Faith Hill is well known for having sold more than 40 million records worldwide and for winning five Grammy’s and myriad of other awards. Her first acting role was in a 1995 episode of the television show “Touched by an Angel,”  and Hill made her one and only film appearance to date in 2004’s reboot of The Stepford Wives alongside Nicole Kidman, Matthew Broderick and Glenn Close.

Dwight Yoakam in Sling Blade
Dwight Yoakam has been popular since the early 1980s, and in that time he has sold more than 25 million records and recorded over 20 albums. Though Yoakam has appeared in 25 films and numerous television shows, he is probably best known for his acclaimed performance as the abusive Doyle Hargraves in the 1996 film Sling Blade.
