Cowboy del Amor

Critics Consensus

Though at times funny and engaging, Cowboy del Amor fails to explore the imperialist implications of offering young Mexican women to white American men.

  • This charming documentary follows Ivan Thompson, the self-proclaimed 'Cowboy Cupid,' as he finds Mexican brides for American men who feel they've exhausted their options on their side of the border.

    March 2, 2006 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • Thompson is no McNamara, and Cowboy del Amor is no Fog of War. But there is something hypnotic about this self-styled romance expert expounding on the fog of love.

    February 24, 2006 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Michle Ohayon's Cowboy del Amor turns out to be one of the sweetest, funniest and most enjoyable nonfiction films you are likely to see this year.

    February 23, 2006
  • The film doesn't quite manage to sustain interest for the duration of its 86-minute running time.

    February 22, 2006
  • Ohayon doesn't judge Thompson or his customers, but you don't need to be a Harvard-educated psychiatrist to realize that the bunch of them are dirty old men who treat women as commodities.
