Not a classic, but cute and fun for families.

Antagony & Ecstasy

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.

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.

...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.

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

Likeable, fast-paced animation with some good gags and that cinematic rarity: a decent Cuba Gooding Jnr performance.

Judged apart from its mousehouse history it's highly likeable, pleasantly unpretentious and plenty amusing.

Marks a return to form after such cartoon clunkers as Brother Bear and The Jungle Book 2.

F5 (Wichita, KS)

It's a reminder that Disney can be pretty funny when it needs to be. It's in the 101 Dalmatians range: a lot of fun, and not requiring a spoonful of sugar to go down.

Shadows on the Wall

There's nothing terribly new about this animated Disney feature, but it's still engaging good fun.

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.

It's bittersweet that the era has to end on this accomplished, but awfully slight entry and not on a blockbuster.

Finding a creative pleasure freed from musical constraints, Home on the Range is a definite curiosity in the Disney canon.

It's short and not syrupy. There's an undeniable proto-feminist subtext, too.

A silly, but enjoyable film, with passable humor and music, more suited for children than adults.
