Awesome
11 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie when it came out. I think this is what created my love for bull riding. Well watching it that is. I have so much respect for those who go and do this every day for a living. I fell in love with 8 seconds the very first time I saw it. It is my favorite movie of all times. It will continue to be forever. I cry every time I see it. I don't know how a person can sit and not cry from watching it. The songs they chose for the movie are perfect. Reba's "If I had Only Known." That's a tear jerker in it's self. Also Billy Dean's song "Once and A While." I think? Great song too. And the pictures of Lane at the end. Oh my. I just couldn't stop crying. It was amazing. The fact that this is about a real person I think makes it so much more better.
