I remember
22 February 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I remember going to see this movie with my second grade class. It was playing at a theater somwhere in New York, no doubt due to the recent popularity of "The Cosby Show". It was really weird seeing Bill as a cowboy. I don't remember the movie well at all, but I remember it being kind of violent and very depressing. It seemed like the poor mans "Sounder". I don't remember liking it much, but I think Bill's heart was in the right place. He apparently loves Westerns, and, as always, wanted to make something very pro social.
