One day into the drive Clint happens across actress Sean Livingston who has run her car off the road in the middle of nowhere whilst out on a drive to clear her head. Faced with the prospect of a two or three day wait for rescue or accompanying Clint on his cattle drive, Sean decides to go on the cattle drive. Completely unprepared for the harshness and privations of living outdoors Sean initially hates the adventure. However, as the drive progresses Sean and Clint start to appreciate the differences and similarities of their respective lives and begin to realize that they have much in common. As the drive progresses fate and the forces of nature intervene to turn the cattle drive into a race against time to reach their destination to save the cattle and then return to civilization as soon as possible to save Clint's life.

Almost missed this one.
4 January 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I almost didn't watch this movie because of the "one *" given it in the newspaper, but I couldn't find the remote easily and so let it happen. And am glad I did.

This is a very good romantic movie with two strong attractive characters. It never gets too sweet and we see how a woman we might think has everything really has little to fulfill her. She finds herself happiest under very rough conditions where her efforts mean something.

Brannan faces the loss of his family legacy that has been his life's work because of a bad choice he made; and he faces it like a man.

It also proves that a movie can show the developing love and respect of a man and a woman without having them jump into bed. It has exciting, tense moments and you can watch this with your parents or grandparents and not be embarrassed. Love this film. Gave it an 8.
