This is the large-screen debut of famous (or infamous, depending on your POV) fuzzy purple dinosaur Barney, the oafish character who began a decade earlier on video (selling 45 million units) and then became a top-ranked public TV preschooler show in 1992, followed by 15 million stuffed toys and 25 million copies of Barney books, plus his own attraction at the Universal theme park. The story in this $15 million movie has Mom and Dad leaving son Cody and daughter Abby, plus Abby's friend Marcella, and a baby with Grandpa and Grandma down on the farm -- where a shooting star deposits a large colorful egg. After it's accidentally taken away, Cody and others chase after the egg, intersecting a Main Street parade and then continuing on through a French restaurant, a circus, and a big hot-air balloon launch, eventually returning to the farm. Music features more than a dozen songs, including "Old MacDonald" and "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star". Dances devised by Cirque du Soleil choreographer Debra Brown. Filmed in the countryside near Montreal. … More

Critic Reviews for Barney's Great Adventure
With very little modification, this archly innocuous children's musical could have been marketed as a sequel to Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
Although technically superior to the low-rent Barney videos, pic, which was shot in the country near Montreal, still has a bargain-budget look.
This spin-off from the TV series featuring the large purple felt dinosaur of awesome good nature is emetically wholesome.
To those of us on the greying side of five years old, Barney looks like an eggplant and has a rigor-mortis smile, no shoulders, a huge rear end and the sort of nervous giggle that makes you think he has something to hide.
Barney looks both more real and more magical on video; on film, he's clearly a doofus in a felt outfit.
