Editorial Reviews

The Wild West just got a little wilder…

Trouble hits con woman Diana McQueen (Daphne Zuniga) when she decides to call it quits with her menacing boss, Tom Rourke (Greg Evigan). But for Diana, the only way to escape his grasp is to move out West and take the place of her friend as a mail order bride. Wyoming rancher Beau Canfield (Cameron Bancroft) has no idea of the trouble that’s heading his way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not very good... October 30, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hallmark rarely disappoints me, but this was one such moment. This film is not well constructed--nothing about it made me care about the characters or become engrossed in their struggles. If I had seen it first, I wouldn't have ordered it. Not a keeper.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the time to watch it... December 8, 2009
Format:DVD
I rarely give "bad" reviews, but this is one situation where I agree with the other reviews that this movie isn't a very good one. I, too, have enjoyed most of the Hallmark movies. This one, however, is an exception. My husband and I got through almost a half hour of it before turning it off. The plot was strange, and I, too, found myself not caring about the characters. The language, including the Lord's name in vain was also a turn-off, as was the personality of the main characters. Fortunately I just rented this DVD and didn't waste the money to buy it. If you want to watch a good movie, check out "The Christmas Card" or "Clancy."

2.0 out of 5 stars Not horrible. Not good either. September 27, 2011
Format:DVD
3years is a long time.. This movie felt like 3 years long.

I found acting by the lead actress to be lackluster and paled in comparison to the lead male who she is supposed to marry. She seemed to be almost devoid of emotion(which for her occupation, in a way, seemed fitting. Still, It all seemed a bit too modern for me to believe it is the time period of the old west. The costumes and settings were the only thing reminiscient of the time period.

I haven't seen a Hallmark movie lately, but I seem to remember that this is kind of how they are, all the characters mostly reminiscient of others in their movies (lacking in much personality or substance). although this one was more down-to-earth and not all lovey-dovey, it was the same boring style.

Ha, one quote from the main character, "I know that if I tried to live on principles, I would have died a long time ago," was totally unexpected, but true to the story and I'm sure applies to many ppl with life situations similar to hers. This seems like the opposite of what most Hallmark movies stand for, but basically sums up this one.

Every time a chance for engaging/emotional/substantial conversation comes up between the couple, the scene is cut short, rather annoying, and basically any connection to the characters has to be imagined.

Became monotonous and horribly predictable about halfway thru but I grudgingly--and painstakingly- finished it.

There is a great scene at the end and the overall message of not being hung up on money is positive--but it just drug on...

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT A HALLMARK'S BEST September 29, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
IT COULD HAVE BEEN A BEAUTIFUL PRODUCCION, ANOTHER "LOVE COMES SOFTLY" OR "THE TRAIL TO HOPE ROSE", IT HAD A GOOD CHANCE AND ALL THE PROBABILITIES OF BEING ANOTHER HIT; INSTEAD, THIS MOVIE TURNED OUT SHALLOW AND JUST PLAIN BORING. THE CHARACTERS ARE NOT WELL DEVELOPED AND THE LOVE STORY FEELS FORCE. IT SEEMS US VIEWERS ARE JUST SUPPOSE TO TAKE THE FACT THEY FELL IN LOVE BECAUSE IT WAS THE POINT OF THE STORY, NO DEVELOPING EMOTIONS OR RELATIONS. I COULD NOT CARE ABOUT THE MAIN CHARACTERS, AND SHE JUST SEEMED LIKE SHE WAS TAKING ADVANCE OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES EVEN ON THE LAST SCENE. tHE HERO SEEMED JUST IT NEED OF FEMALE COMPANY. OBVIOUSLY THE WHOLE THING WAS A BIG WASTE OF TIME

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Hallmark At It's Best! February 7, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Really disappointed with Hallmark and for the talented actors that were in this movie.

First, of all there's several explicit scenes that aren't normal for Hallmark quality movies.

Second, the story line isn't that good...The movie was made in a great location it's too bad there wasn't more emphasis on the main character saving his land and developing the movie out from that part of the story rather than just mostly putting the focus on the bride and how she was a theif and on the run from her ex-boss that was looking for her.

Third, the language is a put off to me maybe it's tame for most movie watchers but again it's not what you come to expect if you've watched and loved Hallmark movies for years.

2.0 out of 5 stars Roughest Hallmark Film I've Ever Seen! December 8, 2009
Format:DVD
Ok I liked this romance film. I would not call it a comedy,more like a drama.
Anyway,I did not appreciate the preview on this DVD for the trashy, profanity-laced- "Almost Heaven" which even had the Lord's name in vain in the preview! I hope Hallmark has not "sold out" their standards.

This film is nothing special. It definitely is not sugary sweet,and not really a passionate love here,but it's ok.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mail Order Bride August 1, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really really liked this movie. I liked the characters, and I liked the content. The entire movie kept moving so I didn't get bored. The plot became evident almost immediately after getting into it. Interestingly enough, this was "not" the movie I thought I was getting, so I am really happy that I took a chance and watched it (more than once already). It was suspenseful and heartwarming at the same time. As the characters revealed themselves, I became even more interested to see what the outcome was going to be. It wasn't your typical western-type movie, and that's what made it even more intriguing. I loved the fact that you could almost sense beforehand, some of the actions that would occur, but you could not foresee all of them. That makes it a great and entertaining movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting
As realistic as the current trends of Westerns can be. The situation would not be that far fetched from what was actually happening in the day. Nice story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shame on Hallmark!
Let's see...profanity, including the Lord's name in vain is used throughout the movie. The main character is very deceptive to everyone and should not be accepted. Read more
