The old "wrong person answers the 'object-matrimony' ad" story device was refreshingly brought up to date in this made-for-TV romance. Jilted by her boyfriend, professional photographer Jordan Donovan (Teri Polo) decides that her problem is one of bad location; though a New Yorker for several years, she still feels like a fish out of water. Meanwhile, Jordan's roommate, Laurie (Patricia Kalember), ever searching for a suitable mate, has put an ad in the personals column of a national magazine. When a widowed rancher answers the ad, Jordan (with Laurie's blessing) answers the letter herself and heads to Wyoming. Upon meeting Jordan, taciturn rancher Tyler Ross (Andrew McCarthy) is disappointed, and lashes out with a steady stream of preconceptions about New York girls. Recoiling, Jordan lets Tyler know exactly what she thinks of "cowboys." Naturally, this means that the two lonely people are crazy about each other -- but before a happy ending can transpire, Tyler must overcome a profound feeling of guilt over his first wife's death, fueled by his spiteful father-in-law. Originally slated to debut over the Hallmark Channel on February 14, 2002, Straight from the Heart was curiously held back for nearly a year, finally premiering on February 9, 2003.

This is just a great love story of modern times. Andrew McCarthy looks much better as he has gotten older. Teri Polo is a cutie and watching them interact is great. The ending is awesome. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The scenery is gorgeous too as well as the theme song and wedding song.

This is a great movie. It has great scenery. It combines the east with the west. My husband even liked this movie. It is funny, romantic and dramatic all in one. Loved it!! If I can ask, does anyone know how to purchase the song they played at Laura's wedding in this movie?

Just a ''nice'' movie about two people falling in love; the scenery in the movie is beautiful. A movie people of all ages can watch. Andrew McCarthy looks much better with a little age on him. I just plain enjoyed it and it has a great ending!
