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.

It feels like a film slapped together by Walt Disney's board of directors and never put through the long production schedules and hard-wrought renderings of its past.

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.

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

"Home on the Range" probably wouldn't even appeal to PETA.

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.

Um filme medíocre que narra uma história batida e que merecia ter sido lançado diretamente em vídeo.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

It's short and not syrupy. There's an undeniable proto-feminist subtext, too.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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

Disney's soft-boiled fable won't lay an egg, but don't bet the ranch it'll be a smash.

[Disney] has succeeded in creating an enjoyable little romp that does for bovines what A Bug’s Life did for ants and grasshoppers.

This Disney tale about three brave cows that set out to save the farm is fun for kids and adults alike.

The recognizance mission staged by the movie's perpetually preening protagonists only inspires fond memories of another animated trio.

...relies heavily on the eternal charm of farm animals.

It's worth a rental. But I'd bet the farm this doesn't stay in theaters very long.
