  • FWIW: There ARE bulls in the film. It’s as if Oedekerk believes that cows are a different species than bulls (though there are no female bulls).

  • Huh, I don’t remember any bulls, and when I used my “no bulls” line on a colleague immediately after the screening, he didn’t correct me on that point. I guess that’s one more reason why I don’t like writing up films after seeing them only once.

    BTW, did you see the words “The Original Party Animals” anywhere on the screen? I had heard beforehand that that was the full title of the film, so I was kind of on the alert for that when I saw it, but when the word “Barnyard” appeared on the screen in the opening credits, the subtitle wasn’t there.

  • No, I did not see TOPA anywhere. But there were at least three distinct scenes in which bulls (with horns and rings in noses) appeared. I don’t think any of them were speaking parts, though.

    By the time I actually saw a bull, I nearly fell out of my seat because I’d already gotten to the point of thinking, “Bull = Cow With Male Voice” in Oedekerk land.

    I wrote up a commentary piece about the issue for LC, and hope Jeffrey gets it posted soon.
