Home on the Range (2004)
Critic Consensus: Though Home on the Range is likeable and may keep young children diverted, it's one of Disney's more middling titles, with garish visuals and a dull plot.
Set in a fanciful version of the untamed West, a musical comedy about what takes place when a group of underdog animal charters face dangerous odds and band together to achieve a common goal. A greedy yodeling outlaw named Alameda Slim schemes to take possession of the "Patch of Heaven" dairy farm from its kindly owner Pearl. Unwilling to stand by and see their idyllic way of life threatened, three determined cows, a karate-kicking stallion named Buck, and a colorful corral of critters join forces to save the farm in a wild quest, full of high-spirited adventure. Braving bad men and the rugged western landscape, this unlikely assortment of animals risk their hides and match wits with a mysterious bounty hunter named Rico in a high stakes race to capture Slim and collect the reward money. … More

Critic Reviews for Home on the Range
Assorted movie in-jokes should keep parents tolerably entertained, and Alan Menken's songs mercifully favor western swing over the expected twang pop.
One mustn't carp too much; the film unfolds at a sprightly pace, making it fair fodder for undemanding sproglets.
Within the forgettable musical numbers, and the boring climax, I just couldn't force myself to find one thing positive about this.
It all comes down to what it often does: a dumb concept, an uninspired plot, and characters we never grow to care about, much less love.
This bouncy Western musical-comedy adventure is long enough on charm, but wisely short and sweet at 76 minutes. It's also totally bereft of innovation... [Blu-ray]
Audience Reviews for Home on the Range
Funny, but has no appeal at all to adults. It was cute for kids, but in the end this movie will be forgotten.
meh its okay
A Disney movie that is dull and forgettable.
