The general plot outline is about a young man, in his late teens, Charles (Joseph Mazzello who stars in Jurassic Park and Simon Birch), Charles is all about the city and wouldn't have it any other way but when his grandfather gets tricked into going to the hospital to get a checkup on a sickness he has, his grandfathers friend, Chuck, comes to take him out, and after succeeding, take Charles along with them to there ranch out in North Dakota. Along the way, Charles finally realizes the beauty of nature and learns to have a great time, and in the end, becomes a 'wooly boy.'
The film is very heartwarming and in the end, turns into a sad, but funny tale that makes you want to go out and travel into the world of nature and adventure.
Kristofferson shows up to liberate his boss from the hospital. In the melee, Fonda's young grandson comes along for a wild ride that starts with stealing a hearse and ends with an FBI chase.
This is a great film, a lot of honest laughs, and a lot of hard tears. Dakota, the sheepherding horse, was one of the funniest characters in the film. "Wooly Boys" is definitely a film I would view more than once and I am contemplating adding it to my collection.
If you enjoy the old style Westerns with a lot of humor and heart, this is definitely a film you should consider watching.
I wasn't expecting that I would enjoy this movie much but to my pleasant suprise, found myself thinking that this is a movie worthy to be in a dvd collection. I would consider this movie a cross between a comedy and drama (issues of life, death and relationships) but definately more on the side of comedy.
As for the comical aspects, I would think this type of comedy would appeal more to the down-to-earth individual, who has an understanding of and appreciation for this kind of life (rural) and the people within these types of communities.
As a side-note, I think this movie will also appeal to law enforcement. Particularly those who work in similiar, rural communities.
Definately a movie that I felt "right at home" watching. I, for one, wish there were movies out there- just like this one. Here's hoping for a Wooly Boys II! ;-)
And by the way, if you watch it, pay attention at the end. The very last line will just crack you up. I won't ruin it for you partly because part of it might be a bit confusing without having seen seen the whole movie. Enjoy.
Though sometimes corny in its dialogue, Wooly Boys hits the mark. The movie is easy to watch, beautifully serene in its look and attitude but never boring.
This movie is a fun movie that you don't have to think too hard about. Sit back with some popcorn and enjoy enjoy with the whole family.
Here we have a gangly Joseph Mazzello playing a spoilt teen who goes off to see his grandfather ~ the crusy Peter Fonda in the best role I've seen him play since his Oscar-winning Ulee's Gold (see my review). His sidekick is the even crustier Kris Kristofferson, who is damned good here.
These boys are sheep farmers (hence "wooly boys" as they are known). Before the summer is out, little spoiled city-slicker Joseph Mazzello will know what it is to love and live, chasing sheep on horseback and getting to know his grandfather, whom he also realizes he resembles in personality.
This is a fine family film, beautifully acted and not so heavy on the emotions. Kristofferson has some hilarious scenes, which is one reason he survives, deservedly, in the Hollyweird atmosphere. Get it and love it, and forget about anything similar you may encounter.
