Storyline

Sam leaps into the body of a Texas veterinarian, Dr. Daniel Young who carries a torch for a local ranch owner's daughter, Tess McGill. She has a stubborn streak and refuses to marry any man who is unable to out-ranch her. She makes a bet with her Dad that she will give Young one week to prove he can be a better rancher than she is and if he does, she will marry him. Young's helper at the veterinary practice, Buddy, proves to be a bit of a surprise. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

The calender in Doc's office displays the wrong month. August 1956 began on a Wednesday, not a Saturday as seen. As Doc would need to keep a close eye on the date to keep appointments it is very unlikely he would forget to change it. December was the only 31 day month to begin on Saturday in 1956. (September began on Saturday but only has 30 days. The calendar clearly shows a month with 31 days.) See more »

Quotes

Tess McGill: [Speaking to her father] And I'll tell you what. If there's a man on this ranch who can keep up with me for one week, then I'll marry him. But if he can't, then we forget about this marriage business once and for all.

Why did he go back? What was his purpose??
13 March 2019 | by mrdonleoneSee all my reviews

So anyway one can wonder what the movie was about of course it was in the movie it was a television Siri but even so that even worse because the television series should be straight to the point in here to the point was that we didn't know the point until the very end and then again we needed to think about it but if the point is that something would happen already is the way we know it in real life then why would a man go back the way that to go to fix something which isn't needed so the question is of course why did he come back if you don't know it and that is the whole point yeah really so if you get to the point that you start to realize for this about then we don't know it anymore.
