Movie Review: Cowgirls N' Angels

Cowgirls N' Angels is a heartwarming movie that tells the story of Ida, a feisty and rebellious young girl, who has dreams of finding her father, a rodeo rider. While searching for her dad, she connects with the Sweethearts of the Rodeo, a team of young female rodeo riders run by former rodeo star Terence Parker. Recognizing Ida's innate talent for trick riding, Terence recruits her for their ranks. Accepted wholeheartedly by her new "family," Ida finds a new passion that redefines her life, and may also help her find the father she's been searching for.

Opening in theatres today is the new film Cowgirls N' Angels!

Cowgirls N' Angels has a very intriguing storyline! From the very beginning of the film, the viewer learns of Ida's predicament. Though she is aware that she once had a father, she can't remember anything about him, other than that his name is Walker. Her Mom is always either at work or out with a new boyfriend, which deeply upsets Ida. Her rebellious and spunky attitude causes her to steal aspirin from the local pharmacy on one occasion or sneak out to the local horse stable at night. Bailee Madison was perfect for this role, which was, at times, very humorous, yet riveting. Bailee's spunky and fun personality drives this film home and keeps the audience's interest.

This film is very heart-warming. I thought the film ended very pleasantly, and, without giving anything away, I will say that it also ended satisfactorily. They picked wonderful actors for the climax of the film, as their acting was moving and did a good job helping the viewer to feel for Ida.

There are a few parts about Cowgirls N' Angels that were a bit strange. There are no bad parts, but I did find it a bit disturbing when Ida and her mom would find themselves yelling at each other. Since Ida's mom is single, they don't get along too well, especially since Ida is searching for her father while her mother wants to move on from the past. Also, there are some romantic scenes between one of the riders of the Sweethearts rodeo team and a boy she meets on the road. I thought these were prolonged and caused me to lose my interest. I will say, however, that certain viewers will be very excited to see Jackson Rathbone from Twilight as the boyfriend!

Just over 90 minutes, the film is very touching and family-friendly. It's not my favorite movie ever, but I will definitely be checking out this film again, once it releases to DVD. Cowgirls N' Angels is a wonderful film of finding love and acceptance. If you're planning on seeing a film in theatres this weekend, this is a good choice!
