Don't Waste Your Time
26 October 2011 | by ruffneck543See all my reviews

I am a Dwight Yoakam fan, rodeo fan, and country music fan but still did not like this movie. I thought I would give it a shot since it had all 3 in it. The acting was just not up to par. I don't think it summarized the rodeo very well and it took place in one city. The city which was Waco they made out like it was a small country town. If you've ever been there you would know that it really isn't. There are many other movies to watch that do a much better job.

The last good rodeo movie was 8 Seconds. I wish another one would be made but I guess it just isn't a popular enough subject. This movie just shouldn't be up there.
