Buying the Cow

( 6 )

Overview

Walter Becker's romantic comedy Buying the Cow comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. An English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, and a French soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. Supplemental materials include trailers, and filmographies of the cast and crew. This Columbia/TriStar release does a fine job of presenting the film, even if it is light on quality extras.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Josh Ralske
Buying the Cow features stars from such films as Wildcats, Love Stinks, National Lampoon's Van Wilder, and Def Jam's How to Be a Player, in addition to Alyssa Milano and an awful title. One doesn't approach a film like this with high expectations, and while Buying the Cow may be crude, sexist, and homophobic, it's also much funnier than it has any right to be. The story line is pretty standard stuff for this kind of post-collegiate sex comedy. David (Jerry O'Connell) is afraid to commit to his long-term girlfriend, Sarah (Bridgette Wilson), who wants them to get married. He still thinks he can find his perfect dream girl -- "the one." It's a routine setup, but it's presented brightly enough to hold the audience's interest. Well into the film, a major subplot is introduced involving Michael(Ryan Reynolds), David's womanizing buddy, who wakes up one morning after a fuzzily remembered one-night stand, feeling like he's met the love of his life, only to be greeted by a flamboyant gay man who praises him for his stamina. There follows a ridiculous chase scene, as the panicked Michael flees the apartment naked and is mistaken for a child molester. The scene degenerates from there. It's hard to imagine anyone old enough to be watching the film getting much pleasure out of seeing a little poodle raping an unconscious police dog. The scene is a little too broad, and jars with the more naturalistic tone of the rest of the film. But Reynolds brings a unique energy to the proceedings. Comparable to Jim Carrey, he plays his outrageous slapstick role broadly and bravely, but with a layer of recognizable humanity underneath. It's safe to say that one's reaction to his antics is a good indicator of how much pleasure one will get out of the film.

    The truth about TRUTH

    This is a movie that truely betrays the life guys go through. It is unfortunate, but the various situations and trouble that they get into is something that can really happen. The funny thing is they don't see it coming or even expect it. It is hilarious and what makes it good is that it is not too far fetched.

    Why buy the cow, when you get the sex for free?

    This movie works because of the excellent cast. Ryan Reynolds got me rolling with his daring escape that does Spiderman justice. Ron Livingston with his low key humor definately helps balance the funny (yet twisted) events in Jerry O'Connell (the fat kid from ''Stand by Me'') life. It starts off funny and doesn't let up until the credit definately an excellent buy.
