LITERAL COWBOYS cover image
I have to admit that the consistently veiled crude humor for much of Literally Cowboys and its silliness made me laugh.

The storyline follows two cowboy-looking characters discussing their gastro-intestinal plights after they've just eaten a meal. Verbal hijinks ensue until they start beating around the bush and one of them admits what has taken place - that he, of course, has (and I quote) "crapped" his pants.

I admire the simplicity of the brief storyline. This barely runs over 4 minutes. After a quick establishing shot, it cuts back and forth between the two main characters as we listen to their repartee. There is one location - outdoors, in the middle of a field. It opens with some banjo music playing in the background. There are two characters - Young Buck and Old Hand, as well as a donkey with no lines, played by a donkey named Bayberry. The cut to credits is its own joke. I chuckled :) Also, I like that they credit the donkey.

The message is (perhaps) "be honest."

I give this 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 6 to 18. Mind you, its sense of humor is crude, but clever. Reviewed by Ben P., KIDS FIRST!
