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.
The movie has a flimsy plot, but who cares? Barney, one of the most popular television characters in history, is what viewers want to see, and there's plenty of him.
What is it about that big purple dinosaur?
Although its entertainment value to adults is negligible, it is a safe, harmless bet for families, one parents will neither regret nor fondly remember after it's over.
A movie this cheerful is destined to be awful to audiences over ten years of age...
Those hoping for more than just a long, outdoor version of Barney's TV show, they will likely be disappointed.
It's all rather clumsy and routine.
Really, even three-year-olds deserve better than this.
It's suprisingly entertaining. A must-see for toddlers.
