The problem with Home on the Range is the adult jokes are just mildly humorous. The joke does not as much make you laugh as it makes you say to yourself, "Oh yes, they are trying to make me laugh. Cute."
Well guess what, that does not really matter. I have a four year old little girl that loves horses and a two year old boy who loves whatever his sister loves. They talk about that movie non-stop. And they have only seen it twice!
Heaven help me. When the DVD comes out, I will see it another 2...hundred times!!
Bottom line. The people who should like this movie do, not some grown-up reviewing kid's movies with the same scrutiny of a Sundance entry.
The style of animation is very good. The scenery is so pretty, and the animals are so cute. The voice work is amazing. Dame Judy Dench provides the voice to lead cow on Patch of Heaven, Mrs. Calloway. I wouldn't have pegged Dench to play a western cow, seeing as she is british, but it really does work well, giving her the feeling that she thinks she is better than everybody else. Jenifer Tilly is the voice of my favorite cow in the film, Grace. Grace is a little slow and very peaceful. She provides most of the comic releif during the film. Randy Quaid is the voice of the yodelling outlaw, Alameda Slim. He really is perfect at it, creating the second funnyist Disney villain, just next to Yzma from "The Emporor's New Groove."
"Home on the Range" is the type of Disney film that will please everybody. It has a great story, as well as good humor, and a lot of heart.
The story comprises of a thief named Alameda Slim, who is wanted in many states for stealing herds of cattle. The farmers go broke after losing all their animals and reluctantly auction their farm for sale. Molly (voice given by Roseanne), a cow, who has lost her home due to this situation, is now brought to a new one known as `Patch of Heaven'. However, things start to go downhill, when Pearl, the owner of the farm, has to put it up for auction as well, since she cannot seem to pay the bills for keeping it. Therefore, Molly, along with two other cows named Mrs.Calloway (voice provided by Dame Judi Dench) and Grace (voice provided by Jennifer Tilly), decide to find some way to obtain the money needed to keep their farm open, by catching Alameda Slim and acquiring the reward money. However, there are many obstacles in their way, which they have to face. Will they succeed in the end?
Home on the Range may not be a classic compared to previous Disney masterpieces such as `Beauty and the Beast', `Aladdin', `Little Mermaid' or `The Lion King', but it has its own charm. The storyline of the movie is simple, giving it the charm of old Disney Classics like `The Fox and the Hound', and not too complicated like `Atlantis, the lost Empire'. The score, composed by Alan Menken, goes exceptionally well with the theme of the movie.Read more ›
I am not sure why some are giving this movie such a hard time. I thought that the yodelling rustler was a riot and the idea of how he rustles was a brilliant one. There was some mild violence, but nothing more than Lion King and nothing as bad as Lilo and Stitch. Hardly any negativity in this movie, the animals were very sad to think they would have to be auctioned off.
My daughter has asked to see this again and again, so we will be buying it for her shortly. She loves Maggie the Cow and the little pigs (bacon bits, LOL) If you don't take yourself to seriously and would like to sit down and enjoy a few hours with a younger child (not sure an older child would be as interested) check this movie out.

I enjoyed it for the entertainment value. I also like it because one of my friends was not only one of the artists but also voiced one of the characters. It's a funny film.Published 2 months ago by DawnMarie Rossean
