Movie Info

The old "wrong person answers the 'object-matrimony' ad" story device was refreshingly brought up to date in this made-for-TV romance. Jilted by her boyfriend, professional photographer Jordan Donovan (Teri Polo) decides that her problem is one of bad location; though a New Yorker for several years, she still feels like a fish out of water. Meanwhile, Jordan's roommate, Laurie (Patricia Kalember), ever searching for a suitable mate, has put an ad in the personals column of a national magazine. When a widowed rancher answers the ad, Jordan (with Laurie's blessing) answers the letter herself and heads to Wyoming. Upon meeting Jordan, taciturn rancher Tyler Ross (Andrew McCarthy) is disappointed, and lashes out with a steady stream of preconceptions about New York girls. Recoiling, Jordan lets Tyler know exactly what she thinks of "cowboys." Naturally, this means that the two lonely people are crazy about each other -- but before a happy ending can transpire, Tyler must overcome a profound feeling of guilt over his first wife's death, fueled by his spiteful father-in-law. Originally slated to debut over the Hallmark Channel on February 14, 2002, Straight from the Heart was curiously held back for nearly a year, finally premiering on February 9, 2003.

Audience Reviews for Straight from the Heart

Had read some really great reviews on this movie, but it was pretty disappointing. The acting wasn't great, and the love story seemed contrived. Sorry, but I have a hard time seeing the wisdom in a woman flying out to meet a stranger and riding off alone with him into the wilderness. Don't get me wrong, it had some nice moments, but it just wasn't great film I was led to believe it was. I think those who give it glowing reviews must be older single women who are still holding out hope for this kind of far fetched romance. By the way, could they come up with a more generic title?

Gag me with a spoon. These Lifetime movies are all the same, and 99.9% of them are pathetic. This is among the cheesier, more predictable movies of its type I've ever seen. There's absolutely nothing good or different about this. The acting is like watching a bunch of amateurs, and the plot is the same old drivel we've all heard a million times.
