  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Home, Home On The Range where the deer and the antelope play.... well, you get the drift. When the "Patch Of Heaven" dairy farm is threatened to be taken over by a bad guy (Quaid), three courageous cows (Barr, Dench, Tilly) and a bucking bronco (Gooding, Jr.) team up with a bunch of other barnyard pals to save their home. Yee Haw! (Tricia Littrell)

DVD Picture:
The entire family is going to love the colorful and quirky animation found on this anamorphically enhanced DVD (windowboxed and pillarboxed at 1.66:1). The picture is sharp and detailed, with solid animated images. Colors are richly saturated, with bright apple reds, beautiful cow browns, and pretty pig pinks. There are no annoying edge halos or distracting pixel breakup for a picture that is a lot of fun to watch. (Suzanne Hodges)
