Synopsis
One man turns marriage into a multinational business proposition in this documentary. Ivan Thompson, who spent much of his life working ranches in New Mexico, calls himself "the Cowboy Cupid" and earns a living playing matchmaker, though his clientele is rather unusual -- he finds Mexican brides for American bachelors, most of whom consider the women in their own country too demanding and not suitably subservient. Thompson looks for prospective wives through personal ads in newspaper and visiting small Mexican towns, where he discovers that plenty of women are willing to take a shot at marriage with a Yankee whom they barely know if it means a green card and a roof over their head. Thompson gets a 3,000-dollar fee for bringing these couples together, though his own success in matrimony isn't much to brag about -- he's had three weddings, two to the same woman, and none of which have lasted. Cowboy del Amor was screened in competition at the 2005 South by Southwest Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
