LOL! Shelby and I decided to take in the movies instead of the Coke place, waiting until Friday to do that, so Ian can go with us. Very cute movie. It's about a little farm called "Patch of Heaven". This little old farmer lady owns it, and all her animals are family. There's a cattle rustler by the name of Alameda Slim taking everybodys cattle right out from under their noses, so one old guy can't afford to keep his only cow (played by Roseanne Barr), so he leaves her at a Patch of Heaven. She is a character. Full of high fallootin ideas, like running off and capturing this cattle rustler to collect the reward money to save their little farm from being auctioned off in three days. Turns out Alemeda SLim is the buyer in disguise, buying up all the land after the people can't afford to stay cause he stole all their cattle. The funny part about how this roughean gets all the cattle is...
he YODELS! His yodeling voice mesmorizes the cattle, and they prance around, following in a line like the pied piper and the mice! FUNNY scene!
Anyway, the three cows from the little farm are in a race against time, and against a horse who wants to catch Slim, cause the local bounty hunter who he idolizes chose another horse to ride over him, so he is going to prove himself a better horse, until he finds out the bounty hunter "Rico" is in with Slim, then he helps the cows, they end up driving the locomotive engine attached to the train of cattle straight into Patch of Heaven (they jump the tracks)during the auction, reveal Slim as the cattle rustler, not the land buyer, and save the farm! IF you have kids, even if you don't this is just a fun, feel good movie, we loved it!
