Alternate Versions

The UK release was cut, during post-production, the film was submitted for advice in an unfinished form. At which stage the distributor was informed that the film was likely to receive a 15 classification but that their preferred 12A could be achieved by removing a scene of strong sex. When the film was submitted for formal classification, that scene had been removed and the film was classified 12A without further cuts. The distributor later reinstated some of the cut material for the film's home entertainment release which was classified 15 uncut for 'strong sex'. See more »

Cowboys
17 April 2015 | by abcvisionSee all my reviews

  • I really thought The Longest Ride was going to be a sappy movie based on a book by Nicholas Sparks. I was mistaken. Yes, it can be sappy but turns out to be a good story. A young couple, a city girl and a cowboy go out on a date only to discover they are too different for it to work. They drive up to an accident scene and the cowboy saves the driver while the gal discovers a lot of letters. This sets a path to a past love story and sets the course for the cowboy and city girl to have a little faith in finding love even though circumstances may point elsewhere. I believe this is a good date movie or just a feel good story. Long live cowboys.
