This WAS a good movie!
11 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this! I am a huge Scott Bakula fan, but I don't always love everything I have seen him in. I DID love this one. No, it's not a blockbuster movie, but it IS cute, funny, and I think well written. As always I love seeing Scott play more than one role, and hearing him put on the southern accent was too fun! It probably wasn't too hard since he is a Missouri native (as I myself am!) so he didn't have to make too much of a stretch to get "southern"! I don't understand why some other people said it was "almost good" and picked at the music, I thought it was all just fine. Scott looks great as "Buck Steele" in that cowboy hat and boots, LOVED that! He is so good at playing emotional parts, it really pulls your heart strings. He's great at doing the comedy as well. Can you tell I love Scott Bakula's work??!! I am not completely biased though, I try to call it like I see it. What girls learn was an odd awkward part for him, but this was great. If you are a Scott fan, it is one you MUST see.
