I'm definitely not a movie critic, just an artist who has been around the block in life. I just discovered this cute little documentary on Netflix. Until today I had never heard of the "Cowboy Cupid." Ivan Thompson was hilarious in this film.
I laughed not only at his clever one-liners but also at his ignorance of the essence of the problem he was seeking to rectify. I laughed with him, and at times, at him. Ivan's flawed thinking was that women accustomed to less will always be satisfied with less even if presented with the opportunity to advance themselves. This logic just isn't consistent with human nature (male or female). We all want to be the boss and have things our way.
Ivan was thinking he could go to Mexico and get a wife who would obey him without question. What he got is a woman who wanted a man who would obey her without question (note who won the battle). Hum, funny how we're all really the same.
The reality is that some people (men and women) are just nicer than others. Some fight more than others against those strong natural internal urges to control and be selfish. It's not really about where a person comes from. It's actually about what a person is inside.
Today one has a very difficult time finding someone who is genuinely kind and loving. Someone who is honest and sincere. They are out there but it takes a lot of wisdom and patience to find them.
All in all I liked this film and I would enjoy meeting Ivan sometime.
