Save the ranch end the family feud
Verified purchase
I watched the movie on the Hallmark channel and liked it. Good acting, though the character of the daughter is that of an immature spoiled brat who eventually overcomes herself in the end to actually become a mature adult. Her father (Lance Hendriksen) is a stubborn tough old timer who must compromise with his daughter's innovative plans to save the ranch and have a relationship. The real hero is the cowboy (old time friend) who struggles to bring the two struggling sides together as a family.
PS I guess I am a person who is somewhat clueless to stars of network TV. When I bought the movie I had no idea who Jennie Garth was or is-I am a big Lance H. fan however. At the end of the day what could go wrong with a ranch with an abundance of horses and cowboys. Contrary to a lot of the reviews, I was not looking for a dramatic masterpiece. As a frequent viewer of the Hallmark channel, I enjoy the predictable feel good plots and endings which by real world standards may not be realistic-this is why I like this type of movie. In passing let me state that I am a grandfather who could readily identify with the position of the father over the daughter's-though they must both compromise and loosen up considerably.

Ok, I'm a sucker for mushy family-getting-back-together movies. For me, it's either a Christmas movie or this type. And this one sure fits the bill. This one was done rather well. And I guess I'm always surprised at how much I'm liking Jennie Garth. I never cared for her on her TV series, but I sure like how she does in movies. Especially the sugar-sweet ones. Like her a lot here. I like her spunky cowgirl vibe, her spunky mother vibe and her spunky take-no-nonsense-from-her-father vibe that she uses in this movie. Throw in some great horse shots, some hunky men and I'm done for. Lance has gotten the gruff, grouchy man down pat, like in most of his later movies. He does soften in the end, and isn't that what we all were waiting for? Watching him become a grandfather is so touching. You couldn't ask for better landscapes to be mesmerized by, either. Suffice it to say, you will get a good deal if you get this film. This review is brought to you by your friendly, neighborhood mushy movie lady.

Same Old Story
Verified purchase
It was ok. There was just really nothing to draw you in. The acting was good for the most part but you've seen the story done family issues, hottie potential love interest, big mean bank, barn fire & reconciliation. That about sums it up. Oh, I skipped the big city girl that comes home to save the day.

Good drama, scenery and heroine
Verified purchase
This story has potential - and the scenery and the heroine were beautiful. I'd say it was worth watching - even a second time. I think it's also worth re-doing as a film . . .

The only things I'd change are:
> The man she falls in love with is too hard towards her. He may miss his previous wife but there is no reason to be as unkind as he is throughout the movie.
> His bringing the pony in at the end is a little lame. Again - if he hadn't been such a jerk throughout the movie his offering at the end might have made more sense.
> The actor is fine . . . . I just think his character could have been softened up a little bit.

The gal that plays in this movie is so worth watching that she almost pulls this movie off in the end by herself.

A Really Good Movie
Verified purchase
I really liked this movie. I was somewhat skeptical at first when I saw Jennie Garth's name. But this is a far cry from Beverly Hills 90210 or her present comedy series. She really kicks [...]in this movie. For a TV movie, it was very good. It gives a pretty good picture of the ups and the downs of modern day ranch life...and family conflict also...but like all good westerns should be, the "good guys(and gals)" win. Very entertaining for an old "wanna' be" cowboy like me.

I was hoping this would be a good movie
Verified purchase
I generally like these types of movies, and was hoping to like this one as well. This didn't happen for me. The story line was too predictable and not a lot of believable emotion on the actors part. I wouldn't recommend this movie for others to watch. This is one of the very few poor reviews I have written.
