    A sweet, raucously funny, comic Western that corrects a glaring historical injustice by finally surveying the Old West through the eyes of cows rather than cowboys.

    Has a wacky charm and a feeling like no other Disney film in recent years.
  3. Old-style animation slows down after a snappy start, but it's lively enough to keep kids from fidgeting too much.
  4. Belongs to its trio of "bovine" voice talent -- Roseanne Barr, Dame Judi Dench and Jennifer Tilly -- who play with such tongue-in-cheek delight upon their public personas that it's hard to separate cow character from the celebrities.
  5. A good bet for family viewing. It's got a charming, simple plot, a smart Alan Menken score, and enough subversive humor to wring a chuckle or two out of Mom and Dad.

    It's only 76 minutes long, but although kids will like it, their parents will be sneaking looks at their watches.
  7. Whatever the narrative shortcomings, these characters have the warmth of antique painted storybooks, unlike the eerie plastic simulation of Pixar characters.

    The visual effects are lovely to behold, and the songs by Bonnie Raitt, Tim McGraw and k.d. lang are fairly catchy.

    If I remembered "Home on the Range" correctly, the characters were funny but crazy has hell.
