Richard Eder New York Times As I say, this is a decently average Disney film, with a few funny parts and other parts where you would agree to smile if you could. May 9, 2005 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Disney continues to make movies like "Gus" and people continue to pay to see them, but the process seems futile and this time even the mule seems bored. Rated: 2/4 Oct 23, 2004 Full Review Randy White Common Sense Media Kids will get a kick out of this mule tale. Rated: 4/5 Jan 2, 2011 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Oct 3, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

Dale R The story of a mule that ends up as a place kicker in the NFL. The movie is targeting a younger audience, so the humor is lowbrow and the story really doesn’t go anywhere. There is a romance plot line that isn’t fleshed out and I didn’t buy into it. The movie does feature a few NFL players from the time, so if you’d be into that then check it out. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 07/07/24 Full Review Andrew W Supposedly the greatest movie of all time Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/16/24 Full Review Hayden W This thrilling action packed tale of a young boy and his horse will be sure to leave viewers at the edge of their seats. The special effects will make you feel like you are there on the field with Gus. This movie is great for the whole family and can help young kids learn a thing or 2 about friendship. Would give this movie 13 stars if I could. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/16/24 Full Review StephenPaul C The greatest 01 hour: and 36 minutes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/22/23 Full Review steve d A bad joke that leads to many worse copycats.
