A spiky animation style and cowboy yodelling giveHome on the Rangesome charisma. A trio of cows--Maggie (voiced by Roseanne,She-Devil), Mrs. Calloway (Judi Dench,Iris), and Grace (Jennifer Tilly,Bound)--hit the high prairie to track down a cattle rustler named Alameda Slim (Randy Quaid,Kingpin) in hopes that the reward money will save their farm. With the aid of Buck, a horse with heroic ambitions (Cuba Gooding Jr.,Jerry Maguire), the bovine avengers track the villain to his lair and save the day, to the accompaniment of tunes warbled by k.d. lang, Bonnie Raitt, and Tim McGraw. These songs--composed by Alan Menken (who wrote the music forThe Little MermaidandBeauty and the Beast)--are the movie's strongest element; the characters are largely trumped up to fit a number of weak jokes that reference current pop culture, thus rupturing the movie's Old West world. Still, it looks nifty.--Bret Fetzer

It took me quite awhile to watch "Home On The Range." I bought it for my daughter not long after it came out, and she has watched it a few times, but I never got around to viewing it. For some reason, it just lacked the appeal of other Disney fare. Well, last night my daughter and I sat down to look at this flick together. About thirty minutes into it, my daughter was called off to go to bed. I was also tired, but I was too caught up in this little Disney movie, so I stayed up late.    I …

"Home on The Range" is, to be blunt, kind of a disaster. The story about a bunch of cow's who try to catch an outlaw for reward money to save their home is an unoriginal idea, but you can even take an unoriginal idea and still have a good movie...provided you found a way to make it fun. "Aladdin" and "Hercules" were not terribly original movies, but the execution for both of them were excellent, which is why those movies are still loved by many people of all age's years after they were finished. …
