^It's been ages since I'd seen that movie! Really, the sentence is gramatical; buffalo in that sentence refers to the city name, Buffalo, the animal (properly, bison), and the verb to buffalo, meaning to bully. It is a sentence commonly used to demonstrate a phenomenon called semantic satiation.
I watched the buffalo-clip, but when you start saying some of the buffalo-sentences possible, it sounds just as hilariously stupid as when you speak Malkovich -I thought.
