Trivia

Snotty Boy looks very alike to the character Super from The PJs (1999), a stop motion animated show, previously on Fox, created by Eddie Murphy, Larry Wilmore, and Steve Tompkins. See more »

Goofs

A tractor appears in various scenes. The rear tires on the tractor are on backwards - the tread for tractor tires is designed to push mud out away from the tire when rotating forwards, to keep the treads from filling with mud. These tires would pull mud into the tread, making the tire slick and useless in deep mud. See more »

Original party animals a disappointment
19 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie with my children after renting it. Either the animators/creators do not know a thing about cattle and did not do their homework or they set out to give children the wrong idea. the people responsible for this film had a complete disregard to the anatomical differences in the genders of cattle. Even my five year old picked up on this. It is an awful movie and my 10 year old son even said a few times, "this is dumb, bulls do not look like this". Male cattle are not COWS, (they are bulls/steer when castrated), and DO NOT HAVE UDDERS. Having a sign at the grave site of one of the characters that said, "Ben, a good cow" is just wrong. Cows are only female cattle that have had a calf. Very few things about the movie made my children laugh and they just have no interest in seeing it again. Overall it is a big disappointment to my children and to myself.
