Horses, great scenery, and Andrew McCarthy - WOW!
17 February 2003 | by vharris03See all my reviews

This one will definitely go in my repeat viewing collection!!! Andrew McCarthy has always been able to pull at your heartstrings, but he never looked better than he does as Tyler Ross, the cowboy, WOW!! You can't help but feel for his loss of his wife, but you so enjoy the "sparring" between him and Jordan (Teri Polo), and can't wait till they actually get it together and realize the love they have for each other. The scenery and horses were awesome and just added to the movie's ability so pull you in even without all the violence, etc. that are in movies today. I am so looking forward to Andrew's next movie knowing how great he looks these days.
