or Cowboy Cupid. It's about an old cowboy, Ivan Thompson, who got sick of American women, whom he says, "Go into the change of life in your teens or early twenties and stay in the same gear til the day you die."
He tells one American women who wrote to him to complain that there were mnay lonely women in America too, "If there are lonely women in America, they need to get off their fat asses and do something about it!" Ouch!
He got hisself a lil' Mexican gal after divorcing his nasty American wife. He says he went to Mexico to get a bride "Because I could not get to Afghanistan."
The venture was so successful that Ivan now has a business setting up American men with Mexican women.
He takes the men on a train ride to Juarez, gets a hotel room and puts an ad in the paper asking women to meet his client for possible marriage. The phone always rings.
A lot of these guys are unhappy with American women and some Mexican women say they do not like Mexican men, so they seem right for each other, somehow.
Ivan says that "Feminism is worse than Communism because there's not a Communist living in every house in America!"
Seeing the relationship and marriage that takes place during the film between Rick, a long haul truck driver and Francis, a sweet, Mexican Indian beauty with deep dimples, will make any man feel jealous and want to run down to Mexico with Ivan to find a bride. I found Rick to be incredibly boring, he had no discernible personality, but he seemed nice and was OK looking. Francis had to eat some very bland looking food with Rick and his parents on Thanksgiving, I felt the sorriest for her then.
One of the Mexican women tells about living in Chiapas when the Commies and the "indiginous people" came to take her father's farm. They kidnapped her father and forced her mother and the children to stay on the farm while they took it over. The day her family paid the ransome for her father, they murderd him. They got the body back after it was badly decomposed. After that the women said she was done with Chiapas.
Ivan is an attractive man and the Mexican woman from Chiapas became more attached to him than her prospective husband. She was very attractive, but she was a dermatolologist, too educated for Ivan. He divorced his Mexican wife when she became to Americanized
This movie is fun and funny, I highly recommend it! Some feminists will get their knickers in a twist over it of course, not being of the opinion that other women can make their own decisions. All the more reason to see it, I say.
