Movie Info

"The Last Cowboy" follows South Dakota cattle rancher Vern Sager from 1980 to 2004---through frigid winters, dry summers and prices that are never high enough. Perhaps that's why Vern's six siblings are all in other lines of work. His son, Mark, doesn't stay on the ranch, either---he's a rodeo rider. And, in 2003, Vern's wife, Carol, also leaves the ranch. "Carol rode off into the sunset, but I haven't yet," says Vern ruefully. "[She said] I cared more about my cows than I did her."

Audience Reviews for The Last Cowboy

The Last Cowboy is a tombstone to the last loser that couldn't pay off a loan. The dad is stuck somewhere in the past yearning for days of old, but the visiting daughter shakes him into reality by proposing not breathing life into his old cattle farm, but remaking it into a horse breeding farm for racing horses. After an eight year absence, a headstrong woman returns to her Texas home for her grandfather's funeral and "locks horns" (argues), with her father. Strictly TV material. The acting is high school depth and the story line is dumb. Still, since Hallmark Hall of Fame is behind this film, it is still worth a watch.

Lance Henriksen does a good job as the tough cowboy father, the last of a generation. Nice portrayal of the crazy hard times that come to ranchers (or farmers ;)) and the heart and determination it takes to persevere.
