The laughs subside near the end as the requisite moral kicks in, but this is still that rare kids' movie I'd recommend to parents and nonparents alike.

Deserves to be hanging in the nearest meat locker.

This could be the film that snaps everyone's patience with Hollywood animations which have a Dell computer chip where their heart should be.
October 19, 2006
Loud, raucous and dispiritingly unfunny.
August 12, 2006
It shouldn't be surprising that writer-director Steve Oedekerk, the man responsible for Kung Pow! Enter The Fist and the second Ace Ventura movie, considers single-celled organisms as he shoots for the lowest common denominator.

Don't the filmmakers know there are children watching -- and listening?
November 7, 2012
A shockingly crass grab for holiday pocket money that's both infantile and endlessly patronising.
January 1, 2011
A re-hash of tired cliches and CGI effects.
April 21, 2009
Criminal acts and scenes of brutal violence spoil the effect of "Barnyard" as an animated movie for tots.

That the lead character is a 'male cow' complete with udders shows how confused the picture is.

The whole udder issue is discussed on the DVD's audio commentary track.

A beatifully animated simple but fun plot, carries enough giggles for all age groups.

The animation is perfectly colorful and the voice actors earn their paychecks, but it's blatantly obvious that this thing started production without a screenplay -- and hit the screens without a plot.
October 31, 2006
Relatively unfunny comedy about barnyard animals. It is notable mainly for its anatomically incorrect portrayal of bulls with udders.
October 21, 2006
There are far better ways of keeping the kids happy.
October 21, 2006
Good voice talent and some funny moments.
October 19, 2006
It's impossible to shake the impression that Barnyard was written by idiots. Why else would the male cows have udders?
