Quotes

Josie Hemphill: You could go to school over there at Sul Ross. Still live here. You could talk to daddy about that.
John Hemphill: We talked about college a few years ago. He told me, all a father owes his son is room and board for 18 years. And after that, he's on his own.

What a great movie!!
22 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, for all you people who came from "smalltown, America" who are complaining about this, you should really think about it. This was a really great movie, that shows that you have it all if you just take a look at what you think you are missing. I grew up in Southern Ca, and i moved to a small town when i was 21, but even growing up in a town just shy of a million people, i got an appreciation for it when i left that i would have never had, had i stayed there. This was a great movie, one i would recommend to anyone looking for a good way to spend an evening. not only does it show that a movie can be good without being raunchy and filled with sex, its worth the time that you spend watching it. I would watch it again.
