Embarrassing Cliché
29 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Not sure about other reviews that detail it's obvious film location as Canada based upon the pronunciation of "about" (a-boot)? The only people that say a-boot instead of about is the entire state of Minnesota. Plot is embarrassingly cliché. An adult man who maintains a position as a mechanic, but can't repair a car begs the question of how he was responsible enough to make it to father, homeowner and husband. As a horseman, blacksmith and farrier I find the very idea of making a movie using "calf penning" as a glory sport full of reward and big riches, very misleading. Additionally our leading lady could not pen if her life depended on it as all she can do is run a horse full out in a couple of scenes. No neck reining for cutting? Almost reminded me of weekend cowboys on renta horses, all elbows and heels flailing. The comeback dad, the accident that took him out of the running as a star, to the ex-partner who sold his horse, leaving dad to determine he can no longer compete, is totally unbelievable. I found it almost funny that he was fired for not putting oil in a customers car during a repair, and then, later in the movie, telling his ex-partner to get off his property by the time he's finished putting oil in his own truck. As far as it being a Canadian film, with a Canadian perspective on "our" way of life? Not sure who "our" or "us" is as the west and western way of life is not an American perspective alone.
