    An often amusing but also an aimless and forgettable animated comedy that is noteworthy mostly for its random musical numbers and surprising amounts of violence. show more

    It's a sweet and mildly funny movie that will entertain young audiences, but one aspect is utterly mystifying: The two main characters, father and son bovine creatures, have large, distracting udders. show more

    Bulls do not have udders. Where did the the animators learn the anatomy of cows? Better go back to school. If they think bulls have udders then they must love men.
