Trivia

At the time of filming, a bronze memorial statue of Lane Frost riding a bull was dedicated at the Frontier Days Park in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Luke Perry attended the dedication, as did Frost's parents and widow. See more »

Goofs

When Tuff is riding the bull for the extra 8 seconds for the late Lane Frost, he has his cowboy hat in his right hand and is swinging it. However, as he jumps off the bull, his hat is back on his head and he takes it off with his left hand. See more »

Quotes

Tuff: [six months after Lane died] Back in the spring, Lane said 'this is your year', that I'd win the championship. I told him he was full of it. Here it is, a couple of weeks away, and I really believe I got a chance. I never had anybody believe that much in me.
Kellie Frost: He really loved you, Tuff.
[camera switches to a tear going down Tuff's face]

It is not always easy to complete the ride.
25 January 2003 | by michaelRokeefeSee all my reviews

Luke Perry stars in this sentimental account of the interesting life of Oklahoma bull rider Lane Frost. Hard work and faith led to winning the 1987 PRCA Bull Riding World Championship before rodeo finally took his young life. Perry is very believable leading the cast that also features:Cynthia Geary, Stephen Baldwin and Red Mitchell. Some country dance tunes by Brooks & Dunn and Vince Gill. Worthwhile and recommended for the whole family.
