The cast is the winner in this great film! These guys play so well together and the acting history between them is amazing! Wooly Boys is as implied.... they are sheep ranchers rather than cowboys so I was a bit surprised they weren't ostracized by the cowboys in the neighborhood! The sheep herding black stallion steals the show in my opinion!

This has to be one of the Best Movies I have watched in a Long time. After I watched it I shared it with 5 other People and they all had the same reaction. The transformation of the Grandson was just wonderful!!

Great family film
R. Kyle | USA | 06/24/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Sort of a cross between "Second Hand Lions" (but better) and "Thelma and Louise." Peter Fonda is an aging sheep-rancher who's dying. He's not had contact with his daughter or grandson since his wife died in a tragic accident falling off a horse. He's tricked into coming into the city to check up on his daughter only to discover that they've set him up for a physical eval. The doctors discover an aneurism.

Kristofferson shows up to liberate his boss from the hospital. In the melee, Fonda's young grandson comes along for a wild ride that starts with stealing a hearse and ends with an FBI chase.

This is a great film, a lot of honest laughs, and a lot of hard tears. Dakota, the sheepherding horse, was one of the funniest characters in the film. "Wooly Boys" is definitely a film I would view more than once and I am contemplating adding it to my collection.

If you enjoy the old style Westerns with a lot of humor and heart, this is definitely a film you should consider watching."
Down-to-earth comedy and some drama
inquisitivetoo | Alaska | 11/03/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Originally I rented this movie with the intent to provide my husband with a movie that he'd probably enjoy watching. Something other than a "chick flick."
I wasn't expecting that I would enjoy this movie much but to my pleasant suprise, found myself thinking that this is a movie worthy to be in a dvd collection. I would consider this movie a cross between a comedy and drama (issues of life, death and relationships) but definately more on the side of comedy.
As for the comical aspects, I would think this type of comedy would appeal more to the down-to-earth individual, who has an understanding of and appreciation for this kind of life (rural) and the people within these types of communities.
As a side-note, I think this movie will also appeal to law enforcement. Particularly those who work in similiar, rural communities.
Definately a movie that I felt "right at home" watching. I, for one, wish there were movies out there- just like this one. Here's hoping for a Wooly Boys II! ;-)

"I think this movie was good for the family. It's annoying how people try to pull apart a movie from their own narrow view. For goodness sake don't disect movies, try to enjoy the movie as a regular human would!"
