Storyline

When his best friend dies of an heart attack due to permanent stress at work, the Japanese businessman Yutaka Soto quits and fulfills himself a dream: he buys a ranch in Montana to live on. However the ranch turns out to be due for demolition and the welcome by the people is less than friendly: Hotel owner Cord Wingate wanted the ranch himself and now sabotages Yutaka. Only veterinarian Jessy and an old Cowboy help him. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

A truely original buddy movie.
9 July 2001 | by (Hamilton,Ontario,Canada) – See all my reviews

If you have never seen this film, you do not realize what you have missed. A buddy-movie remaniscent of Shanghai Noon, A powerful Japanise businessman moves to Montana to own a ranch and fulfill his dream of becoming a cowboy. Along the way, he gathers a group of cowboys including a rapper from a touring group, a bullied native-american and a cynical old cowboy. He also befriends a gorgeous veterniarian ho becomes a love interest. The five of them must work together to get a herd of cattle to market while an evil hotel owner sabotauges them at every turn so that he can aquire the ranch and flood the valley with a damm. This film seems to be underrated and not well known. I only saw it because it was on local TV the other night. Try your hardest to find this movie, view it and you will not be dissapointed!
