Beyond Pete's death, it is not a good time for Karen as she already owes her editor new material, she not telling her editor that she has a major case of writer's block. Juliet, who never met her grandfather or knew about her mother's Lousiana past, has no emotional attachment to this trip, she who would have much rather spent Christmas in New York City with her friends in the comfort of big city life.

Don't Watch It
4 July 2019 | by hellafire666See all my reviews

I refuse to give this movie any stars because it is that horrible.

Don't call anything Rodeo & Juliet unless if you do it like Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet if it was set in the Wild West.

So like... imagine every character are cowboys/girls, they all talk like the Shakespeare classic with the few "yeehaw"s and "what in tarnation"s sprinkled within the dialogue here and there, guns are ablazing everywhere, and tumbleweed is getting blown.

On another note, I couldn't make it past the first three minutes before I closed out of the movie so don't watch it unless you want to willingly destroy your brain cells.
