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]

Not a classic, but cute and fun for families.

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.

The Disney animation horse has officially bolted.

Assorted movie in-jokes should keep parents tolerably entertained, and Alan Menken's songs mercifully favor western swing over the expected twang pop.

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.

...only very small children will be able to label it anything more than a pleasant diversion.

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

One mustn't carp too much; the film unfolds at a sprightly pace, making it fair fodder for undemanding sproglets.

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

It's all very competent, but rarely inspired.

The problem with this movie is that it needed to be funny.

...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.
