I'll make it simple: I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!!
5 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, Wishbone's got a movie---a great one! It used to be a t. v. series but ended long ago, but I believe this was the last of it: the movie. I'll try and keep the synopsis short. It's about Wanda Gilmore becoming a "hero" of Oakdale but a sneaky news reporter for, some reason, claims that she is actually the "town tyrant" because of her job, the Oakdale Chronicles newspaper. Will her career crumble before her? But Wishbone has a nose for these type of things, we hope he will somehow solve the real truth behind things! You just have to see it and find out! Of course, wishbone always has a tale to tell. This time, he tells us the stories of O. Henry's short stories of Long Bill Longley. In Chaparosa, Texas, no one is better at taming the land then Longley and his best friend Tom Merwin. But, with the ruffian Calliope making mischief in town, Longley & Merwin are quite a match for this scoundrel. But can they really do this? See it and find out! I say it again I love this movie, absolutely love it! You should really see it! But it's nearly a decade old so it may be hard to find and I don't think they'll bring it out again. But, actually, try and find it at your local library, it's a high chance it's there, because the library usually holds older videos. But its really great, my favorite!!
