The concept: Three dairy cows embark on a mission to apprehend a cattle rustler to use the bounty money to save their farm. The reception: Roughly half of U.S. critics panned the film and it had a worldwide gross of just over $100 million, making it a disappointment by Disney's high standards. Until John Lassetter put "The Princess and the Frog" into production, it was to be the last 2D animated film from Disney Animation. As good as: Nothing in the Pixar library. There's a reason Disney suspended hand-drawn animated features after this cow pie.
