Straight from the Heart (2003) Reviews

  • Nice Romantic Drama


    Seen this movie tonight on the Hallmark Channel and really enjoyed it. This is a charming movie to watch on Valentine's Day! It was good to see Andrew McCarthy in another serious roll. He's done so many comedy films in his career and he is funny to watch, no doubt. I love horses and photography so I found myself wishing I were there at that Ranch playing Teri Polo's role!!! 9/10. I would give it a 10/10 except the film ended too soon. They could have added a little more romance and perhaps a wedding! :)

  • Horses, great scenery, and Andrew McCarthy - WOW!


    This one will definitely go in my repeat viewing collection!!! Andrew McCarthy has always been able to pull at your heartstrings, but he never looked better than he does as Tyler Ross, the cowboy, WOW!! You can't help but feel for his loss of his wife, but you so enjoy the "sparring" between him and Jordan (Teri Polo), and can't wait till they actually get it together and realize the love they have for each other. The scenery and horses were awesome and just added to the movie's ability so pull you in even without all the violence, etc. that are in movies today. I am so looking forward to Andrew's next movie knowing how great he looks these days.

  • Lightweight, inoffensive TV movie about letting personal barriers fall.


    I happened upon this TV movie last night on our new (to us) Hallmark movie channel. I was intrigued because it stars Teri Polo who I remember and liked from Northern Exposure, and Andrew McCarthy who I remember from Mannequin. It was set in NYC and Wyoming, but the opening shot looked a lot like Mt Hood in Oregon. Most of the movie was filmed in wide open forest, plains, lakes, and mountains and is one of the strong points of the film. some SPOILERS follow, read at your own risk. Polo's character is a budding photographer who chronicles "refuse' (garbage) and her work frankly stinks. Her boyfriend wants her to move in with him, but she wants a commitment, marriage. He seems very gun-shy. McCarthy's character has a ranch in Wyoming, is a man of few words and few smiles. Polo's best friend sends in a "lonely hearts" application, as does McCarthy's sister, and they both take the arranged meeting, a weekend in Wyoming, very cautiously. They develop an immediate dislike for each other, Polo considers cutting the visit short. Polo's back story is a father who deserted her as a young girl and photography became her shield against the world. His was the death of his wife, and unborn daughter, a result of a very risky pregnancy. He hadn't allowed himself to move on. She sticks it out, she becomes helpful, she starts to shed her "mask." He starts to see her for what she is deep inside. She eventually goes back to NYC, has a successful photo exhibition of horses, photos she took while on the ranch in Wyoming. Last scene, he walks into the gallery leading a horse featured in some of her photos, walks up to her and tells the horse, "She'll do", they kiss and the film ends. A very pleasant, inoffensive film, no violence, no fights, no bad language, no overy sexuality, actually a bit refreshing, although the story unfolds very predictably. Polo and McCarthy are both believable in their roles, if we can believe a beautiful NYC woman would actually fly to Wyoming to meet a man she has not spoken to, doesn't even know what he looks like. Get over that point and the movie is enjoyable in a relaxed kind of way. A quite different role for McCarthy.

  • Great for a Saturday afternoon!


    I really liked this movie. I ran across it while looking for something to watch, saw who was in it (Andrew McCarthy) and stopped to watch it. I only have two problems with the movie - one, no one who wears a ball cap wears it with their ears tucked in (like Terri does) and her camera makes a noise as if it was had an auto winder on it, yet she advances the film with the lever. Watching McCarthy ride was a great thing, too. It's funny, though, because I knew from the description that this was from a romance novel - and one I'd probably read a while ago. Had this thing for cowboys, you know. Never really got over that... (As a woman who frequently wears ball caps and who was a 35mm photography nut - before digital got good - I guess I'm picky.)

  • A Must See!


    What a wonderful movie and one that I would definitely recommend for anyone. It has won the spot in my heart for "My Favorite All Time Movie". The story was funny, heartwarming, and the acting was flawless. This is the type of movie that catches your attention and then you are spellbound for the rest of the movie. I hope they make a sequel, would love to see what happens next. Would also love to see more of Andrew McCarthy. I loved his performance (and I'm not one of the former Brat Pack fans). His performance in this film is his best yet - I would definitely recommend that viewers try to catch Andrew in his films as a mature want be disappointed!
