Home on the Range (2004)



Critic Consensus: Though Home on the Range is likeable and may keep young children diverted, it's one of Disney's more middling titles, with garish visuals and a dull plot.

Movie Info

Set in a fanciful version of the untamed West, a musical comedy about what takes place when a group of underdog animal charters face dangerous odds and band together to achieve a common goal. A greedy yodeling outlaw named Alameda Slim schemes to take possession of the "Patch of Heaven" dairy farm from its kindly owner Pearl. Unwilling to stand by and see their idyllic way of life threatened, three determined cows, a karate-kicking stallion named Buck, and a colorful corral of critters join forces to save the farm in a wild quest, full of high-spirited adventure. Braving bad men and the rugged western landscape, this unlikely assortment of animals risk their hides and match wits with a mysterious bounty hunter named Rico in a high stakes race to capture Slim and collect the reward money.

Not a classic, but cute and fun for families.

December 24, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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

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

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

August 6, 2004 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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

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.

Funny, but has no appeal at all to adults. It was cute for kids, but in the end this movie will be forgotten.
