User Reviews

This movie is the greatest - Kudos to Hallmark
26 June 2006 | by skibby98See all my reviews

I've been divorced 37 yrs, am 71 & live in Florida. I've been corresponding via internet chat, email & phone with a man who is 69 & lives in Minnesota who lost his wife after 42 years of marriage. We had an immediate magnetic attraction we can't explain. However, we've never met because he is still deeply grieving the loss of his wife & can't let go. I've seen this movie four times and am buying the DVD. I cry every time I see it because it reminds me so much of my situation with my friend in Minnesota, horses and all. :-) I keep hoping that one day my friend will come to see he must let go the same as Tyler did in the movie. I also love the humor and the fact it is a decent and soooo very true movie. I don't often see a movie that has impacted me emotionally the way this movie his. Major Kudos to Hallmark.
