`Home on the Range', Disney's 44th and final hand-drawn animated movie, is a surprisingly good one. Having grown up with the wonderful animated Disney movies, I am a little disappointed that they will not be releasing any more in the future. Just as all Disney animated movies are family-fun oriented, `Home on the Range' succeeds in this manner, as it is a very casual movie filled with lovable characters.
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.

Since the late 90's disney's 2d animated feature films are consistently disapointed, largely due to the fact of the 3D industries boom.

This film out 2004, at the time was disneys final 2d animation on the drawing board, as they decided it wasnt making money and to switch to only 3d films. Im glad to say they are doing new one coming out in a few years, but this traditional 2d animation is the true art of animation.

I watched this film as was quite suprised. It has some very interesting characters amd the story also was quite good. Not good enough for legendary status, but good none the less. Its about a group of cows who go on a quest to save their owners farm by capturing a villian to claim the reward, which would in turn save the farm from its debt. This film is full of dramatic moments, great character development, and the odd twist to keep you gripped to the screen.

The look of the film isn't the usual disney, but it impressess. I certainly recommend this film as its a great watch and displays some impressive animation from true artists.

Saddle-up as Disney take you on a bovine road trip. Slightly madder than a dose of BSE, three plucky cows have to save the sweeter than saccharine all-American Pie ranch of 'Patch of Heaven' from the megalomaniac clutches of cattle rustling baddie Alameda Slim.
OK, so it was never going to beat the onslaught of Shrek 2 this year, but Disney must have laid down plenty of manure to make this an grew into an enjoyable slapstick romp: great celeb voices, plenty of sly knowing humour - sorry, humor, including a dig at Dreamworks damp squib of animated western-ry - and what must be one of the trippiest cartoon sequences ever: someone had obviously been chewing some cowslip...
The disc has the usual assortment of Disney faturettes and simple games to keep the litte ones amused briefly and all in all its typical Disney above average cinema release: talking animals, dumb humans; good laughs, good animation, and a good buy - it'll be equally at home in your dvd collection (just be careful not to say 'Got Milk?').

Home on the Range
Close the curtains grab the pop corn and be prapared to be entertained. Just the film for a autumn evening.
The farmyard to the rescue when their home is under threat from the greedy landowner who has a desire to expand his empire by rustling cattle and forcing farmers out of business .
Three cows set out on a journey to track down the villain and bring him to justice
before their beloved farm is repossed by the bank.
A great family film for all ages.

By R. WEST-SOLEY TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 11 Dec. 2010
Format: DVD
This is one of the lesser-known, slightly forgotten Disney animations of recent years, but it's one of the quirkiest and most fun of all. With hilarious voicings by stars like Roseanne Barr and Judi Dench, it's a tongue-in-cheek laugh-a-minute which both kids and adults will warm to.

The musical score is a hidden gem of Disney music, penned by Disney favourite Alan Menken and featuring some really excellent songs such as 'Little Patch of Heaven' (k.d.lang) and 'Wherever the Trail May Lead' (Tim McGraw). A real treat - camped-up country fun in the Wild West, it might not be the best-known Disney feature, but it's definitely a classic.

This little film is pretty much what you would expect of a Disney cartoon of this time. It is full of all the usual formula characters, tales and gags. That is why we love them! Sometimes, these formula stories can seem a bit stale, even though they are always watchable, reliable and amusing, but this one is a definite goody. Some of my other similar DVDs I have watched once then passed them on. This one is a keeper, and I will watch it again.
