Dark Horse (2012)

“A dark horse is a previously less known person or thing that emerges to prominence in a situation, especially in a competition involving multiple rivals, or a contestant that on paper should be unlikely to succeed but yet still might.” They are using it correctly. “Dark horse” is not necessarily a derogatory term, and the main character in this movie saw himself as a dark horse. The film is not centered around his family or himself viewing him as a black sheep…in fact, his parents enabled and coddled him to a degree.

I’m familiar with both terms. I stand by my original comment. The description here and on IMDB is of a black sheep. “Abe Wertheimer - an odious, purposeless, self-centered 35-year-old living parasitically with his parents (by choice) and working in his dismayed father’s business office (avoiding work while scoping eBay for collectible toys) - meets Miranda,”

dark horse: a candidate or competitor about whom little is known but who unexpectedly wins or succeeds.
