The 411 by Maria:
I am a huge fan of Bailee Madison. She just breaks my heart in practically everything I have ever seen her in so I was excited to see this sweet movie about a little girl being raised by a single mother.
In Cowgirls N' Angel's Bailee plays spirited Ida who longs to find her daddy! She hangs around rodeos on the lookout for him and eventually friends a riding troupe called the Sweethearts of the Rodeo run by Terence Parker played by Oscar Nominee James Cromwell.
Terence's troupe stars his daughter and a bunch of wayward girls who has has taken under his wing and given a second chance in the game of life. Terence talks Bailee's mom into letting her go with the Sweethearts on the road where she learns a lot about herself and finds herself with a "new" family.
I personally loved this movie and there are great messages and lessons such as being self reliant and never giving up on your dream. There are as many bad ones also.
Stealing - Ida steals a horse, keys, etc.
Breaking In - Ida breaks into the horse farm at night to ride a horse.
Lying - Ida writes a note of approval from her mom to Mr. Parker to enable her to ride and spend time with him.
There are certainly more than the ones I have listed and none of these things ever go punished. However, even with all that the movie is a great family friendly movie and like most movies starring Bailee, I did my fair share of crying!
