Disclosure: We received a free copy of the DVD to facilitate our honest review. All opinions stated are those of the Shelly's Bits & Pieces family.
We are always on the look out for a good quality family movie. We love movies that our entire family can watch and enjoy, and it is a huge plus when Dove.org awards a movie their "Family Approved" seal. All those things come together in Cowgirls and Angels 2.
Here is the movie synopsis: Oscar Winner Keith Carradine (Cowboys & Aliens) stars alongside a young, popular cast that includes Haley Ramm (X-Men: The Last Stand), Jade Pettyjohn (American Girl: McKenna Shoots for the Stars), and Emily Bett Rickards (Arrow) in this inspiring second chapter of the beloved Cowgirls ’N Angels story! After she receives unexpected news about herself, a 17-year-old girl (Ramm) experiences an exciting, yet challenging life in and out of the rodeo circuit in this wonderful coming- of-age story. Filled with heart, horses and high-reaching adventure, Cowgirls ’N Angels 2: Dakota’s Summer is an uplifting reminder that with courage, friendship and passion, anything is possible.
Our thoughts: The movie was really good. The story itself revolves around Dakota and what occurs after she finds out she is adopted. She is initially angry and decides that she needs to find out about her biological parents. Dakota meets her biological mother and eventually realizes that everything happens for a reason. She finally understands what her grandma meant by, "It's not about the blood..." Cowgirls and Angels 2 flows easily. You truly start feeling for the characters and the situations that surround them.
The movie has a lot of wonderful lessons about forgiveness and about love. Family does not have to be related by blood as long as the heart has the connection! We wholeheartedly recommend the movie!
