Complete waster of time
6 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

Yet ANOTHER Hallmark movie that adds nothing to entertainment. Yet ANOTHER horsey movie in which no one knows the last thing about horses, especially the riders.

Yet ANOTHER waste of time for the viewers.

The story is again the same - overbearing parent who needs to learn a "life" lesson. A child who is devoted to her family, even to the point of being used by them for their own gain.

Hallmark has a fine history of truly abysmal movies, all with the cheapest production values and usually with one known actor amid a crowd of unknowns. This is no different. I haven't a clue who the actress is that plays Brooke, the daughter. Stephen Collins I know well

  • he's the sole "name" in the bunch.




The story? Daughter wants to be a veterinarian. Dad wants her to be big-time rodeo star. Mom flitters around the background, uttering bleats of concern, all the while plucking a guitar for her lost dream of being a singer.

What this movie needs for all its lost characters is a big EXIT sign.

I hope everyone who reads this realizes the great sacrifice I made in sticking with this movie till the end, just so I could honorably write this review.

And my last point? I know it's cheaper to film in Canada, BUT STOP IT ALREADY!!!! You are not fooling a soul. We KNOW it's set in the United States (supposedly Washington State), but we can tell it's Canada. Enough already. I get homesick for the States watching these movies.

OK, that wasn't my last point. I was truly concerned for the horses in this movie. I've ridden all my life, and there's nothing so slick and treacherous as mud (except, perhaps, loose slate in the Grand Tetons, Wyoming). These poor animals were in mud up to their hocks, and I was concerned one of them might get seriously hurt.

Move production to Arizona or Texas - make it easier on the animals. Soggy, sodden British Columbia doesn't do it for me.

Now where do I go to get my 120-minute refund? 1* out of 10
