"'Cowboys and Angels' is a sweet, tender love story about one man's search for the girl of his dreams. Danny (Adam Trese) has been left standing at the altar and begins to doubt if true love really exists. Unexpectedly two attractive women soon come into his life (Mia Kirshner and Radha Mitchell) and before long he must decide which woman is the one fated to become his wife. What he doesn't realize is that angelic forces are present and subtlely guiding him to make the right decision.
I love this movie! Mia Kirshner is absolutely gorgeous as Candice, she is fast becoming one of my favorite actresses. This is a film that can be enjoyed by everyone, old and young, so watch it with your entire family.
Warning to Cowboy Movie Fans: If you're thinking of renting or buying this movie based solely on the presence of the word "cowboy" in the title, don't. It really has nothing whatsoever to do with being a cowboy. One of Danny's love interests happens to live and work on a ranch and you see a couple people ocassionally wearing cowboy hats, but that is the extent of it."

"THIS IS MY SECOND REVIEW FOR THIS FILM, HOWEVER I'D LIKE TO BRING UP A FEW MORE IMPORTANT SUBJECTS.
I FAILED TO MENTION THAT THIS FILM FEATURES MOSTLY A COUNTRY SCORE, HOWEVER THE MOVIE'S MAIN SONG IS A NEW AGE STYLE SONG.
IT ADDS AN ENTIRELY NEW DIMENSION TO THE FILM, AS WELL AS PROVIDING THE AUDIENCE WITH "MUSIC TO THE EARS."
THE SONG IS ENTITLED, "ANGELI MELLA BREZZA," PERFORMED BY SASHA LAZARD.
I FELT I SHOULD MENTION IT BECAUSE IT'S AN IMPORTANT ELEMENT TO THE MOVIE.ALSO, THE DVD FEATURES ARE QUITE FEW: SCENE SELECTIONS,CAST FILMOGRAPHIES AND A MAKING OF FEATURETTE.
IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO SEE A TRAILER FOR THE FILM AND SOME CAPTIONS WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE AS WELL!!
THE DVD IS IN 2 CHANNEL STEREO SOUND, HOWEVER THE SOUND IS FINE FOR THIS TYPE OF MOVIE(DRAMA) AND THE PICTURE QUALITY IS NOT BAD!!
I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH TO COMPLEMENT THIS WONDERFUL MOVIE.
THE MOST I CAN HOPE FOR IS THAT MY REVIEW(S) WILL CONVINCE SOME PEOPLE OUT THERE TO SEE THIS TOUCHING FILM.THE REALISM OF THE POWER OF LOVE IS PRESENT IN THIS LITTLE
"UNKNOWN" GEM AND I HOPE THAT IT WILL LEAVE AN IMPRESSION ON YOUR LIFE AS IT DID IN MINE!!
MOST EVERYONE WILL PROBABLY FIND THAT THEY CAN RELATE QUITE WELL WITH THE FILM'S CHARACTERS.
THE PERFORMANCES ARE QUITE SUPERB AND THE FILM IS FREE OF MOST OF THE POLLUTION THAT "LOVE STORIES" OF TODAY ARE SO OFTEN FLUENT WITH!!
DON'T LET THIS MOVIE MASTERPIECE PASS YOU BY...SEE IT AT ALL COSTS!!
WITH THAT SAID......ENJOY THE MOVIE!!!

If you search for spiritual depth in romance...

"Danny is a man who has 'done-been-wronged' and he is quickly loosing faith in love as he watches it fall farther and farther from his ideal in the relationships of the people around him. In steps a living angel who helps Danny to see love through different eyes, feel hope again, return him to his his ideals, and ultimately a real love relationship. This movie is more than just an ordinary box office romance. Gregory Haynes gives us a sensitive pictoral expression of deeper spiritual love. This love is not limited to our earthly plane; it does not see with the eyes, hear with the ears, or speak from the mouth. It effects and transforms our lives on the higher planes of the knowing heart and soul. With dialogue such as "Sometimes it's not the things that you can see or touch that are real, sometimes it's what you feel in your heart that's most tangible." and "Ancient philosophers believe that there was a language that was spoken by angels and it couldn't be translated or repeated because it was only understood by the soul.", Gregory Haynes reminds us that our world is not as random as we might suppose. Life is perhaps ordered and aided by a power greater and more magnificent than our selves if we are only willing to release our fears and surrender our hearts and soul to Love. All of the actors do a lovely job expressing this story. I particularly liked the scene where Danny's sister, Dana, admits her loss of hope and Danny embraces her with unconditional love even though he does not agree with her choices. This is followed by a very beautiful series of "old home movie" images of Danny and Dana as children. Your heart wrenches with Danny's as you 'remember' Dana as an innocent, open, loving little girl knowing that as an adult she has chosen a hard path in love. Where, when, and how did she lose that purity of love of childhood? Where and when did we each lose it? The comic relief character is wonderful as well. "
A must see movie

"The title isn't the best for this movie, its not about cowboys but a love story, great acting, great characters and the power of love makes the movie a hit. The two main characters crash weddings and look at the wedding through the eyes of completely unknown couples. While viewing the weddings they too fall in love. The rest is for you to view and find out about, I believe you will love this movie. Larry Hobson-Author-The Day Of The Rose"
A love story that is really about love

"This is a wonderful film, but can be confusing (Starting with the title- the sole thing wrong with this movie is the idiotic title). I have watched it many times and and find more all of the time. In some ways, this is like a Scandinavian movie: The plot is in fact very dense and close nit- absolutely every part ties together- BUT it is not spelled out for you like some sort of formulaic romantic comedy. Instead, much is suggested and you have to use your imagination to fill in the additional details. If the details had been spoon fed to you then the movie would have had to be four hours long: This is only acceptable if you are watching War and Peace.
So, I will give you a hint or two: At the beginning of the film Danny is the best man at his sister's wedding. He is heartbroken as he was himself just left at the altar by a woman he was deeply in love with. Danny has high ideals, is in fact a very good man and truly believes in true love, but the result has been hurt and despair.
To God, this situation is NOT a disaster- It is an opportunity. Time to send in an angel or two....... Oh, and no this is NOt about how things are somehow specially arranged so as to keep Danny from becoming jaded. In fact he is in for some additional pain (literally) and heartache. One of the things Danny gets to learn is that he is NOT the center of the universe. But it turns out that this will also be okay.
This film goes far deeper into exploring the ideas and nature of love than 99 percent of the love stories out there. And the three main actors [Radha Mitchell [who is fast becoming one of my favorites], Adam Trese and Mia Kirschner) were all absolutely perfect in their roles.
I do not want to spoil your enjoyment or appreciation for this little gem. Rather, I want to suggest that you allow your imagination to work and help you enjoy the full story. If you do not participate in the story with your imagination then you will simply end up bewildered (as a least one of the reviewers on this site did- what a pity)."
