All Critics (25) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (17)

  • "Barney's Great Adventure" may not be remembered as one of the true children's classics, but when it makes its appearance on video, it should hold your child's interest long enough to allow you an extra cup of coffee in the morning.

  • 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.

    July 12, 2002 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • Barney looks both more real and more magical on video; on film, he's clearly a doofus in a felt outfit.
