This movie is fantastic! Even my 12 year old boy enjoyed it!

yes it has some sexual things in it, but my child knows about it, and he loved all the cowboy things in it. So some of you parents will think that I am mad but I am not the whole movie is good but if the sex happens then just cover their eyes.

I read his books!

I really loved this movie, it was funny but also some parts were sad. I don't recommend this romance movie due to the nudity and sex scenes it seems more like appropriate for adults because of language and the scenes.

This title has:

Too much sex
