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.

Movie Info

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

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.

Even if Disney production turns out to be, as many observers fear, one of studio's last 'traditionally animated' features, retro opus proves there's still a lot of life in them thar cels.

Comes across less as a fully realized work of storytelling than as a commercial for a corporation whose goal of entertainment has been replaced by that of making money.

An overextended cartoon, stretched to its limit despite the relatively short 76-minute running time.

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]

Freed from the tyranny of dimensionality and realism, the animators indulged in one of the most goofy, silly, cartoony projects made at Disney in years.

At last the humble cow has been recognised for more than simply gracing Gary Larsen cartoons.

The film is garish and frenetic but absolutely lifeless.

Adults will enjoy saddling up and going for the ride -- possibly even enjoying this moo-vie more than your kids. It's udderly hilarious!

The screenplay, however, smacks of desperate studio executives who are out of touch with today's audience.

...youngsters won't mind the silliness; but I doubt they'll understand the old Western-movie stereotypes and clichés they've never heard of.

Home on the Range, pese a ser una cinta afable y que divierte a los pequeños, dista mucho de ser un home run taquillero para Disney.

A brightly amusing romp, which can truly be recommended for the entire family in that time-honored (but somewhat neglected these days) Disney tradition.
