It's a sweet but slight film whose undeniable appeal is largely due to the performances of its flat-out adorable leads.
A feel-good coming-of-age movie that floats on a boatload of Irish charm.
A likable if ordinary Irish indie that barely squeaks by on the charms of its leads.
Enlivens the classic premise of innocent-in- the-city by moving its archetypal characters in unexpected directions.
Stack Cowboys against most of the fare American studios offer young adults and it's meatier by far.
Manages to be enjoyable despite its contrivances.
Keeps us involved even after the plot takes some badly contrived turns. Strong characters and performances make it almost watchable.
In 2004 there is no excuse for a gay-themed film to be a translucent closet with a cute, revolving door.
All over the map, but since it's Irish, it still manages to be a little charming.
There are no truly great lessons imparted in Cowboys and Angels, but its charm, sociability and highly watchable performances make it a smooth, friendly cinematic pint.
Gleeson has written and directed the picture with deep affection and impressively cinematic skill.
