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.
Audience Reviews for Barney's Great Adventure
Out of all the things they decided to make for Barney, it was to find an egg? None of the kids can act. Boring.
My 2 year old granddaughter just loves this movie. There are some slow parts but that is why you have fast forward. The scenes at the circus and restaurant are exciting. I liked how the main boy character changed throughout the movie. He becomes more positive and open to using his imagination. love watching this movie with my grandkids.
I don't like Barney. In fact, I can't stand him. However, there is something about this movie that makes me like it.
