Maybe the dumbest movie ever made
21 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

If a it's called a cow and it has udders IT IS A GIRL! I mean seriously, couldn't they have made the whole thing with the same plot and just not stuck udders on the otherwise clearly MALE cattle? At least when they make worker ants and bees male it's not as in your face stupid as sticking udders on a bull. I think I could have enjoyed the movie otherwise, there were some funny bits, the animation itself wasn't bad. Nothing original of course but a nice enough way to pass the time. The 'love interest' was entirely predictable apart from the uncomfortable fact that the guy wasn't a guy, just a really butch girl which I'm fairly sure wasn't what the makers intended. They were lucky the Christian Right didn't pick up on that.
