Bad bad bad, stunningly bad.

February 8, 2004 | Rating: 1/5

Watching Fresh Horses feels like watching a short film expanded to an hour and 45 minutes...but without adding any dialogue.

Audience Reviews for Fresh Horses

Teen stars take on a more serious subject and characters. This movie is good, the actors do a good job, and the movie is interesting. I liked it.

This is one those movies that you wish that McCarthy and Ringwald would not have made.
