The spirit guides of a young foreign man help him fulfill his dream of becoming a cowboy. Sort of.
18 January 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is not for everyone. It is full of subtle humor and deeper meaning. It is the epitome of 'Canadian' and I have yet to meet a non Canadian who 'gets' it.

For those that do get it it's a hilarious journey of a foreigner's dream to become a cowboy. He is aided and abetted in this quest by a strange collection of friends made from chance meetings and with the help of a couple of spirit guides.

The comedy is nicely balanced by sad and tender moments that are typical of life's lessons. Superb scenery of Alberta and an old first generation Honda Civic (circa 1977) round out this intriguing film.

My only surprise is that it has not reached cult classic status yet!
