We went and saw Seabiscuit last night. I thought it was a pretty good movie, especially for a movie that had received so much criticism. I've not been in a theater in some time where the theater broke out in applause. The movie tried too hard when it came to showing Seabiscuit's representation of the entire age. Too little credit is given to the audience's ability to understand this and it's done in an in-your-face sort of way. The audience in the theater applauded not only at the end of the movie, but also as Seabiscuit won the match race with War Admiral.
