Teen Movie Review By Charly Shelton
"Home on the Range" is the story of a group of cows trying to save their farm from the auction block, and accepting a newcomer cow. This movie isn't exactly "where the deer and the antelope play"; more like "where the cows, horses, buffalo, jackrabbit and yodelers play." Filled with hilarity, even for teens and adults, this is a great movie for a family to see together.
Roseanne Barr provides the voice of "Maggie," the new cow, a smart-mouthed character that makes the other animals on the farm realize they have more power than they thought. Judi Dench as "Mrs. Caloway," is the bovine voice of reason and Jennifer Tilly is the "hippie" cow that tries to bring love and understanding to all creatures. This trio sets out to capture the cattle-rustling bad guy, "Alameda Slim," voiced by Randy Quaid, who is out to grab all the land for himself. The cows get a little horse power from "Buck," voiced by Cuba Gooding, Jr., who considers himself the "Bruce Lee" of horses.
