Tommy and The Cool Mule

Tommy makes a friend and finds a way to save his family’s farm when he meets a new friend, Jackie A. – a talking mule. Against all odds, Tommy and Jackie A. triumph over the older bullies and their horses at the county stock show in a spectacular show of resolve and determination that caps off a winning family adventure.

Dove Review

Sometimes we all need a little help to believe in ourselves. This comical movie about a young boy and his talking mule will undoubtedly make you laugh. It brought back memories of another talking mule in the movies I saw when I was a kid. Jackie A. just wants to help Tommy with some of his problems, especially dealing with the bullies from school, and Tommy just wants to help his family. Together the two unconventional pair show everyone that anything is possible.

This is a cute and comical movie for the entire family. Dove awards this movie our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal.
