Great for a Saturday afternoon!
25 June 2005 | by (Austin, Tx) – See all my reviews

I really liked this movie. I ran across it while looking for something to watch, saw who was in it (Andrew McCarthy) and stopped to watch it. I only have two problems with the movie - one, no one who wears a ball cap wears it with their ears tucked in (like Terri does) and her camera makes a noise as if it was had an auto winder on it, yet she advances the film with the lever.

Watching McCarthy ride was a great thing, too. It's funny, though, because I knew from the description that this was from a romance novel

  • and one I'd probably read a while ago. Had this thing for cowboys,


you know. Never really got over that...

(As a woman who frequently wears ball caps and who was a 35mm photography nut - before digital got good - I guess I'm picky.)
