Editorial Reviews

When an over-the-hill cowboy picks up a young hitchhiker, the rough-and-tumble world of modern-day rodeo will never be the same again in this funny, endearing look at friendship, fate and finding yourself. Tom Selleck is perfect as the longtime broncobuster Joe Wade, an ex-champion rodeo rider with too many years and too many pints under his belt to go on much longer. But when he picks up feisty Ruby Jean (newcomer Rebekah Johnson), the ultimate odd couple embark on a road trip they'll always remember and a journey of the heart you'll never forget in the most delightful, feel-good movie of the year.

And 'offbeat'?? Where did he get that? This film is a classic. Tom Selleck portrays Joe Wade as a real person. He's heroic at times, but he's not immune to the human condition of self-doubt and regrets from the past. Rebekah Johnson as Ruby Jean Babcock perfectly balances vunerability with modern-day savvy about the world around her. Without unnecessary lewdness, the movie depicts a beautiful love story. Despite what others see when they look at them, Ruby Jean and Joe connect. The movie was heartwarming to watch and I am looking forward to it being released on DVD as I will certainly buy it!

I saw this movie for the first time in 1996 - about a week before my birthday. I was trying to come to grips with several personal issues at once myself: Getting older, changing jobs, past relationships, alcoholism and loneliness. Selleck's character, though older than me, was all too familiar. His performance, as well as the entire cast, brought the story to life in an honest, believable way. The story goes to show that it's okay to have faults. It's also important to recognize who your real friends are and accept their help, too. Lastly, you cannot judge a person by their appearance, either. As Ruby Jean observes, "You must be somebody you don't look like." I'm not ashamed to say this movie brings this biker to tears every time I watch it. (Usually on my birthday.)

I can't believe this movie hasn't been shown any more than it has. It really touched my heart. I guess it hasn't been shown because you have a young black girl and an aging white man. I don't know if prejudice will ever go away and that's really sad. This was a really good movie because it was so real. How many times do you see people that want to be together, but they don't because of other people and what might be said. This movie really needs to be shown more so people can see how it hurts not to be with someone you love.

One of Selleck's great roles and that young girl played a touching and wonderful role as well. She touched my heart, as well as the Joe's girlfriend (another outstanding actress). Excellent through and through and even had an old cowboy (whose name escapes me) who tells Tom the truth about his rodeoing and life. Outstanding. Not many movies touch this "oldie but goodie" (me) but this one sure did. It struck a cord and I won't forgot it. It was one of those movies I had to IMMEDIATELY search for in hopes of buying it (at this price, no way). Five + stars and thanks to Lifetime TV for putting it on.

I am happy to say this film is true to the nature of human beings. I really appreciate the way the characters slowly came to together and told a crisp, honest story. Ruby Jean is a young woman on the verge of making a life altering decision. She meets Joe, a retiring rodeo rider, with a heart-of-gold. Ruby Jean and Joe fall in a sweet-friendship type of love and give each other the courage to face both of their fears. Moving story.

I loved this movie. It gave a refreshing review of friendship without perversion. I was home sick with the flu, but once I saw a few minutes of it on TV, I was hooked. I, too, have experienced a very similar relationship. You cherish it for the rest of your life. I really want to buy the video, but am on a limited budget. Please let me know when it is on SALE. I've visited several video stores looking for it. I'd like to have it as part of my permanent my video library!

I saw this movie while visiting my sister in Canada. I rarely watch movies and even less rarely am impressed by a movie. This movie definately has a message and speaks about higher values and the things that really count in life. Ruby Jean is a young girl who has a real innoncence about her, as well as a real strength. Joe is a cowboy who is very much a man, even more so for respecting the young girl that he picks up hitchhiking. A real and lasting friendhip develops, that also has the hint of true love that is to follow. This speaks about our deeper values and the possibilities that we have along life's journey.
