Otis the Cow (Kevin James) is the carefree irresponsible son of Ben the cow (Sam Elliott). So while Otis danced, Ben was fighting off the coyotes from the hen house. When Ben dies fighting the coyotes, Otis must step up, but he just can't fill his father's shoes.

Steve Oedekerk did not have a good day when he created this pretty boring cartoon. The animation is horrendous. I don't know if it's a style choice, but it looks extremely cheap. There's a good message in here, but it's lost in weak humor and weaker characters. The movie is missing joy. Even when they're throwing around some jokes, they never work. Otis is just not likable.
