A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Love doesn't conquer all, but it helps.
Positive Role Models
Karen is angry and ungrateful. She didn't make it to her father's funeral. She is surly and unfriendly to a man she was once close to and hurt badly. She is overly critical of her daughter. Later she turns herself around. Hugh and Monty are steadfast and reliable. Juliet seems spoiled but finds a way to make her new life work.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Rodeo & Juliet is a 2015 movie that's a variation on the difficult-urban-teen-brought-to-the-country-to-find-meaning-and-good-behavior theme. This time the single mother raising her needs some country goodness to heal what ails her as well. In the process two adults and two very old-looking teens kiss.

Is It Any Good?
This movie seems farfetched at times, but it'ss appealing enough that one wishes it were so much better than it is. The bare bones of Rodeo & Juliet will go well with a bowl of popcorn, but a stronger script would have made all the perfectly competent actors look a whole lot better. A girl who has never ridden western saddle in her life learns in three weeks to barrel race well enough to beat an arena record at her first competition. Guess barrel racing is a lot easier than it looks.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
