  1. D. Williams says:

    Well filmed movie! Being from Roswell, it was evident that the sites depicted were the real deal. We watched the actual race and watched “Bird” win, but didn’t realize the journey it took for him to be there. What a horse!! Thanks for a very enjoyable & heartwarming story.

  16. Scarlett says:

  17. Aurora says:

    When will it b release WE LOVED THE MOVIE

  18. lydia says:

    My son really want movie when will it be available

  19. Jane says:

    A great movie; very entertaining with excellent acting. I think it would have done well even with a traditional release…inspirational in that it is a true story that shines hope in a situation where many would have been tempted to give up (the kind of story needed in today’s economy). I would love to have some DVDs to give away as Christmas gifts if the DVD will be released in time to order for the holidays.

  20. Debbi says:

    Well, am still waiting for the movie to make it to Napa, Ca- am sure I will like it when it does! Did someone hijack it? Where in the heck is it? Can’t buy it on DVD either! Waiting, waiting, waiting,…….

  21. Peggy Lenz says:

    My whole family went to the movie and loved it. My daughter and I were actually at the Derby the year Mine That Bird won so it was even more fun to see the whole story. I recommend everyone seeing it. We are anxious to buy the DVD when it comes out.

  22. Angela says:

    Saw it by accident today. Never heard about it. It was never advertised. It was really good. Can it wait for DVD.

  23. Kathy Hatcher says:

    Waiting for the release of 50 to 1 on DVD. What seems to be the holdup?

  24. ROHAN SUMMERS says:


  25. Chuck says:

    Please hurry the movie to a DVD and release it in Texas :))

  26. DIANE HOU.TX says:


  27. Donna M says:

    I saw this movie in Austin TX almost by accident. Never saw a preview. I LOVED the movie. I saw that race but never heard about the movie. Why isn’t it playing anywhere? I came back to Oregon and it wasn’t playing anywhere near here. I even asked and no one had heard of it. My sister actually met this horse on the ranch in New Mexico. It is a great story about the little guy making good. I loved the whole family. Their hat trip to Target was priceless. I wish it would hurry up and be released on DVD because I want to see it again. I am amazed that all the trashy movies are advertised like crazy and a nice home grown true story goes no where. Sad!

  28. Casey says:

    This film was enjoyable “feel good” entertainment for the whole family. I left the theater relaxed and smiling.

  29. Jo DeAngelo says:

    This didn’t run in theaters near me but I can’t wait to be able to buy the DVD!

  30. Leslie Peterson says:

    I saw the movie and it was great. #Christian kane and #Skeet Ulrich were great in the film. It is a great feel good family movie. I was going to see the movie a second time but unfortunately it was gone. Will for sure buy the DVD when it comes out.

  31. Ina says:

    Please bring out the film on DVD! I´d love to watch the film in Germany either!!

  32. Sandy Marowitz says:

    I’m still waiting to see this in Pennsylvania. From what I’ve heard from friends who have seen #50to1, it sounds absolutely amazing!!! I can’t wait to see it!!

  33. Melanie Adame says:

    I think the movie is awesome and I can’t wait to own it on DVD. From laughing at the pooltable scene to crying when Skeet’s character had the accident and when Bird won the Kentucky Derby. Love the movie and I hope the Hollywood award people pay attention to the writting, acting and all aspects of the movie. #lots of love for #50 to 1.

  34. Robin says:

    I love this movie, saw it in Kentucky and now will be able to see it again in California. Christian Kane and Skeet Ulrich bring Mark Allen and Chip Whoolley to life with such heart and enthusiasm that you can’t help but be drawn into the story. Love Sunday Rest as Mine That Bird and Calvin Borel did a wonderful job playing himself (so much fun!). Jim Wilson and Faith Conroy (Ten Furlongs Productions) are still working on theater distribution in the U.S. and then hopefully in Europe so it may be a while before the DVD release, but I will definitely be getting one when it the time comes; until then I hope everyone that gets the opportunity to see this movie on the big screen takes it, it is a heart-warming, family friendly movie and make for a fun night out!

  35. Tina Walker says:

    Can’t wait for #50to1 to come out on DVD!The cast is awesome! Especially #ChristianKane my favorite actor/song writer/singer of all time!

  36. Angela Turner says:

    This movie was amazing! It’s great for the WHOLE family. I know… another underdog story. This one is well-worth going to see. It’s the true story of Mine That Bird and how he came to be a Kentucky Derby winner. It will make you laugh, make you cry, and (if you’re like the people in the audience when I went to see it in the theatre) will have you yelling and cheering for Bird by the end! I saw it twice in the theatres and once this is released on DVD it will be going into my movie collection!

  37. Mary E Brewer says:

    No date has been set for the release of #50to1 to dvd.. They are still working on getting it into theatres as we
    speak.. It came out in a slow roll out in the states that the horse #MineThatBird and his owners took to get to the Kentucky Derby 2009 and then moved onto other states.. If it is not playing in your town .. Please request it from your local theatre that they show it.. This is an #IndieFilm and not back by a large production company! I have seen this movie 3 times and loved it every time!!
    #ChristianKane and #SkeetUlrich and rest of cast did an amazing job with this movie.. which was very well written and produced by Faith Conroy and Jim WIlson!! you dont want to miss this on the big screen! thanks!

  38. hskrbckr says:

    This movie was a flop. By the time we got around to going to see it, it was gone.

    Looks decent…

  39. patti tyburski says:
