Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Assorted movie in-jokes should keep parents tolerably entertained, and Alan Menken's songs mercifully favor western swing over the expected twang pop."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"... a serviceable time-killer."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Within the forgettable musical numbers, and the boring climax, I just couldn't force myself to find one thing positive about this."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Not a classic, but cute and fun for families."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"At last the humble cow has been recognised for more than simply gracing Gary Larsen cartoons."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"One mustn't carp too much; the film unfolds at a sprightly pace, making it fair fodder for undemanding sproglets."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Comes across less as a fully realized work of storytelling than as a commercial for a corporation whose goal of entertainment has been replaced by that of making money."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"It all comes down to what it often does: a dumb concept, an uninspired plot, and characters we never grow to care about, much less love."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Freed from the tyranny of dimensionality and realism, the animators indulged in one of the most goofy, silly, cartoony projects made at Disney in years."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"The film is garish and frenetic but absolutely lifeless."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"Even if Disney production turns out to be, as many observers fear, one of studio's last 'traditionally animated' features, retro opus proves there's still a lot of life in them thar cels."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"An overextended cartoon, stretched to its limit despite the relatively short 76-minute running time."
‑ Jennifer Frey, Washington Post
"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]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"The Disney animation horse has officially bolted."
‑ , Film4
"...only very small children will be able to label it anything more than a pleasant diversion."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
