    The critics have read way too much into this man. This movie will at times make you wish that you could have been there to gain more insight and to see Mr. Thompson behind the scenes. I do not belive that he was strickly seeing women as commodities, he is just pragmatic. Find 2 marriage minded people and introduce them to each other in a matter of a few days.

    A well-done, oft-times entertaining documentary as it presents this unique brand of matchmaking that may or may not be the ideal situation for both parties.

    Richly amusing and sporadically insightful as it offers an up-close-and-personal view of Ivan Thompson, a self-proclaimed "cowboy cupid" who plays matchmaker between American men and Mexican women.

    A 60-year-old eccentric with a knack for self-promotion, Thompson makes an engaging documentary subject. But his plainspoken charm and cornpone shtick can't dispel the film's lingering aftertaste of exploitative condescension.
