    Set in 1949, All the Pretty Horses is an end-of-the-cowboy-era film adapted from Cormac McCarthy's novel of the same name. It seems closest to the book's strategy when its characters are wandering through the Western landscapes — with Matt Damon and Penelope Cruz.

    Basically a failed comic update of It’s a Wonderful Life (1946) with a few major twists — the only highlight in this dull film is Téa Leoni who wastes the most credible performance of her career — with Nicolas Cage and Don Cheadle.
