Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: A bunch of intermittently amusing sketches that collectively don't add up to much of a picture.

- Bruce Newman, San Jose Mercury News, Friday, April 12, 2002

Rotten: This picture is one of the flattest, stupidest, unfunniest sex comedies -- as well as one of the worst all-round pictures -- I've ever seen.

- Charles Taylor, Salon.com, Friday, April 26, 2002

Audience Reviews

2 stars

The idea forwarded here seems to be that cows can be just as stupid and lewd and backward as bulls (!!!). The result amazingly reaches the same conclusion: boring, and embarrassingly so. The cast, however brave, fails to lift the material. The groaning you will hear, that'd be you.

Hilarious! Some of the scenes were cringing but you couldn't help but laugh.

This movie is one big hot mess, but it's so disastrously, disgustingly fun I don't even care.
