User Reviews

Almost entirely accurate depiction...
6 March 2000 | by boywonderSee all my reviews

This movie captures the life and times of legendary professional bull rider Lane Frost. However, there are a few things that are added to the facts and a few facts that are left out. The director felt that Lane's real-life story was "too good to be true" and needed a little pizzazz. All in all, this was a great movie (even though you'll probably be crying by the time it's all over, yes even you tough men out there!)
