(4 out of 5 stars)

"In this movie, Bonnie Bedelia portrays real life drag racing pioneer Shirley Muldowney. Bonnie brilliantly captured Shirley's firecracker no nonsense essence. You feel the triumphs as well as the setbacks that Shirley went through to ensure her racing dream became a reality. This was an excellent movie and I hope that it gets re-released on video."
Excellent Movie

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a movie that I could watch over and over again. (Still waiting for the DVD version) The story is touching and poignant. It is inspiring for all women who have felt that ceiling that stops us from succeeding and shining in life. Also to be noted...look for a very young ER star as Bonnie Bedelia's son."
