  • Everything in the movie is suffused by a vision of life that is resoundingly and evidently false, but as this vision is not repulsive, but is intended to reassure, the lies don’t produce anger or frustration. No, they bring on the laughs. show more

  • In the 1980 movie “Urban Cowboy,” John Travolta rode a mechanical bull. In The Longest Ride, Scott Eastwood rides real bulls, but everything else is mechanical. show more

  • If this is your particular poison, it won’t kill you. But anyone averse to Sparks’ sappy touch may get sick from all the bull. show more

    I loved it!!!! Forget what the critics say, this is a beautifully crafted love story that will tug at your heart strings. Wonderfully written, cast, directed, photographed with lovely music. Britt is the the next Julia Roberts, and Scott has a great future stepping out of the shadow of his famous father. The two were a perfect match. One of the best movies I've seen in the last few years.
