Goofs

When HD is shaving in the mirror and his Dad is watching, he cuts himself several times, the first one in the middle of his left cheek. Afterward he is shown with bits of toilet paper stuck to the cuts, but the one on the left cheek is almost under his ear instead of where he actually cut it. See more »

A story about a father & a son.
21 December 2002 | by (Brunswick, Maine.) – See all my reviews

HD has led a life of rodeo-ing and honky tonkin. An injury while bull riding forces him to return home to recupperate. When he gets there he finds that his sister and her idiot husband have put HD's dad into a nursing home and are trying to take the farm. HD's old girlfriend from childhood also comes back into his life and soon HD has to return to bull riding to win the $100,000.00 prize, fend off his sister, keep his dad from the old folks home, and win the love of his life.

This has become one of my most favorite films. I love Scott Glenn and Ben Johnson and this story always brings a tear to my eyes. A must see. Its a bit corny and low budget but damn worth your time.
