This CGI cartoon seems like a cross between
The Lion King
and the skewed world of Gary Larson's
cartoons, where animals stand up and talk whenever humans aren't looking. Kevin James voices fun-loving male cow Otis, who must face up to his manly responsibility when his father (Sam Elliott, who does a mean Johnny Cash impression at one point) is killed by coyotes. Writer/director Steve Oedekerk, better known for his live-action films
Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls
Kung Pow: Enter the Fist
, brings a strong cinematic sensibility to the proceedings, and
brims with often laugh-out-loud sight gags and one-liners. Younger children may be a little disturbed by the violence and the movie's dark undertones, while the more literal-minded will just feel confused by the film's muddled biology: all the cows, male and female alike, have udders.
A fun-loving male cow who spends his time hanging out with his friends and partying all night is forced to accept responsibility for the first time in his life, after being placed in charge of the farmyard following the untimely demise of his father. Animated comedy, with the voices of Kevin James, Courteney Cox, Sam Elliott, Danny Glover and Andie MacDowell.
