Movie Reviews

Cute movie, but read the book . . .
Ronald Scheer | Los Angeles | 06/13/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Cute is the right word for this made-for-TV movie. A cute meet involving runaway horses and a social gathering at a Vancouver country club leads to a quick marriage, and the rest of the film concerns itself with (a) whether the cowboy hero's city-bred wife has what it takes for an early-winter cattle drive, and (b) whether the ranch's investors and a greedy banker are prevented from putting the ranch out of business. Needless to say, all ends well, and Ryan Gosling fans will not be dissapointed either, but any resemblance to actual cattle ranching is coincidental. I can also mention that scenic footage of this particularly breathtaking part of the world (the mountains of central British Columbia) is in short supply.

Hobson's book about himself as a young rancher in the late 1930s in BC is wonderfully written, with a chilling account of that cattle drive under severe blizzard conditions. There is a wider array of characters, including members of a local tribe of Indians, and his buddy Panhandle is given more to do than simply object to the presence of a woman on the trail. Hobson's courtship and marriage, in fact, don't happen until the end of the book. Read it; you'll enjoy it."
It was cute.

"A cute movie, I bought it because I'm a big Ryan Gosling fan and it was some of his earliest work. I didn't really expect much going in. It was fairly short and there were a few times that I found it pretty amusing. And, of course, the adorableness of Ryan Gosling in a cowboy hat. All in all, I'm glad I bought it, but if I'd had to pay more than seven bucks for it, I probably wouldn't have."
Nothing too good for a Cowboy

"Was a good movie and enjoyed it, but wish it had been longer. One of those movies you can watch over and over again.
(Loved the TV series and would really like to see that on DVD.)"

"I am a big fan of romance movies and this one was up there with some of my favorites! I very much enjoyed watching it (several times)and would recommend it to anyone who likes nice "feel good" romance movies! The actors were believable in their parts!"
