Trivia

Tim McGraw helped co-write the song "My Little Girl" for the movie and it is the first song that he has written and recorded, he has said he has written other songs, but they were not very good. See more »

Goofs

The license plates on the vehicles have the wrong county numbers on them. In Wyoming the number before the bucking horse indicates the county the car is registered in. For instances the horse trailer has County 3 plates on them. County 3 is in northern Wyoming, while they are based in southern Wyoming which would be either county 2 or county 5. See more »

Katherine "Katie" McLoughlin: [narration] I live on top of the world... in the Never Summer Mountains of Wyoming, 8,000 feet closer to the sky. In my mountains when spring finally comes to save me from a perpetual winter, the world comes to life again and I remember what it is I'm here for. I'm the only daughter in a long line of ranchers and when we let our horses out for the first time every spring, I love to watch them rediscover the world. I can see in them an expression of my own restless spirit. Charged ...

great family movie
23 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Its about time someone came out with a clean, funny, suspenseful, and outright wonderful family movie. I am sure I will watch this again, and again. Tim McGraw surprised me being able to act on top of singing. All of the actors and actresses in this film were really good. I think I only heard one cuss word which was very nice considering most films now. This movie made me laugh, cry and just feel good. A definite on being seen. If you want a good time with your family ... go watch this movie. Can be watched by all ages. It does a few parts that might be a little too intense for ages 6 and under but everyone else I think will love this movie as much as I did.
