Refreshing, delightful, good family flick, kudos, kudos,
9 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

Just happened on to this movie. Could not turn it off. Love rodeos--live and on TV. Had sort of followed these "cowboys" for several years.Really enjoyed seeing a bit of their lives. Lane Frost was basically a good person and it was nice to see him depicted that way. None of us are perfect and I guess it was ok to depict that side also. Glad the movie did not dwell on the negative and Lane and Kellie were able to work things out before he died. I believe I remember when he died. My Dad was a "cowboy"--not rodeo--just a real cowboy for many years.

Don't miss this movie.
