THE PLOT THUS FAR
To save their farm, the resident animals go bounty hunting for a notorious outlaw.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
The time is the 1800s. The place — the Old West. Cattle drovers roam the land with their livestock, thieves and other miscreants terrorize the countryside and homesteaders try to eek out an existence in the middle of the wilderness. It is here that local farmer Pearl has set up her own his little paradise appropriately titled “Patch of Heaven.” Among the animals on the farm, the cows clearly command the most respect. They include prim and proper Ms. Calloway who does not tolerate recklessness, the air-headed Grace who spouts kooky Zen tidbits at inappropriate moments, and cocky Maggie, a headstrong show cow and the latest addition to the farm following misfortune at her old home.
Times are not good for Pearl, with the bank threatening to foreclose on her farm if she doesn’t come up with $750 within three days. Not wishing to lose another home, Maggie convinces Ms. Caloway and Grace to aid her in hunting down cattle thief Alameda Slim. The three heifers find competition in a conceited and ambitious stallion named Buck who is anxious to make a name for himself by being the mount of legendary bounty hunter Rico.
The Blu-Ray comes with a DVD copy, a commentary, deleted scenes, music video and featurettes. The A/V Quality is pretty strong for a less-than-brand new contemporary Disney flick. You get an amazing 1080p transfer and DTS-HD 5.1 master audio track. However, don’t expect it to give your home theater a workout. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to all Disney fans.
