Editorial Reviews

Charles (Joseph Mazzello) has no idea what he's in for when his Grandfather, Stoney (Peter Fonda), comes to Minneapolis for medical treatment. A pampered, big-city kid, Charles has a difficult time relating to this old man from a sheep ranch. But when Stoney's pal Shuck (Kris Kristofferson) shows up to break him out of the hospital, Charles is swept up in the adventure of a lifetime. From a stolen hearse to a wild, hilarious race back to the Badlands of North Dakota, Charles learns to be a "wooly boy" and appreciate his roots. This funny, heartwarming story underlines the power of family and friendship and shows us that it's never too late.

I thought this film was very great, I picked a copy up from the store because of Joseph Mazzello, I already knew the film would be good because he was in it considering hes always starring in 4 or 5 star worthy films. The film had a great cast, there were many funny parts, especially at the beginning when Charles (Mazzello) is "kidnapped" by his grandfather and friend Chuck, the whole ride over is really funny and most of the comedy comes from the driver who was forced to drive them. The scenery was great and I would expect that considering the film was filmed at the location the movie is supposed to take place at, North Dakota. Many people compare the film to SecondHand Lions saying that it just copy'd the film but they fail to realize that SecondHand Lions actually came out AFTER this film, Wooly Boys was originally released in theaters for a limited release in 2001 but finally arived on DVD right now in 2005. SecondHand Lions came out in 2004, three years after Wooly Boys, so that really annoys me, SecondHand Lions was also a great film though. Pick up a copy, you probably won't be dissapointed.

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.

Sort of a cross between "Second Hand Lions" (but better) and "Thelma and Louise." Peter Fonda is an aging sheep-rancher who's dying. He's not had contact with his daughter or grandson since his wife died in a tragic accident falling off a horse. He's tricked into coming into the city to check up on his daughter only to discover that they've set him up for a physical eval. The doctors discover an aneurism.

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.

Originally I rented this movie with the intent to provide my husband with a movie that he'd probably enjoy watching. Something other than a "chick flick."

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! ;-)

This was one of the most hilarious & saddest movies I think I have ever watched here on Amazon. I laughed my butt off during some of the scenes and cried during others. Peter Fonda and Kris Kristofferson played their parts to perfection--they were great! This would be a great family movie for families with children 10 and above. Not that there is anything in it that younger children shouldn't see, I just don't think that they would understand some of it--it would be a little deep for them. I appreciate that there was very little cussing (and no F-words at all!) and no sex scenes--just a fun movie for almost everyone.

I think this movie was good for the family. It's annoying how people try to pull apart a movie from their own narrow view. For goodness sake don't disect movies, try to enjoy the movie as a regular human would!

This movie is great. The back description does not give it much credit. It is absolutely hilarious. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because a few scenes are rather corny and ridiculous. Other than that, it is one of the best movies I have seen in the last while. I would definitely recommend this movie. Watch and enjoy it with a laugh.
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.
