This is not sweet, not even a fun romcom. The plot, tone and man's character is too serious to handle, it feels creepy and so uncomfortable. Jokes are inappropriate and it is misinterpreted if you think the conclusion is happy.
Monroe gives arguably her best performance, unfortunately the plot is creepy and the lead cowboy dude is annoying as shit. Watch for Monroe's performance only, as the rest of the film is forgettable. Monroe: 4.5 stars, Film: 1 star
Monroe is good and I'm a sucker for Cinemascope, but this film is rather disturbing. The first hour is played for laughs even though our young, dumb, possibly inbred cowboy always seems to be no more than two minutes away from raping Chérie, who rapidly develops Stockholm syndrome after being kidnapped by him. The tone and plotting feel entirely inappropriate.
