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.

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

An overextended cartoon, stretched to its limit despite the relatively short 76-minute running time.

This bouncy Western musical-comedy adventure is long enough on charm, but wisely short and sweet at 76 minutes. It's also totally bereft of innovation... [Blu-ray]

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