Sometimes funny but a lot of times not. A ok story but very cringeworthy at times. Barnyard is a very weird cartoon but mostly, it's just downright creepy.

By far the best movie I have ever watched. Buy it for your kids, mother, grandfather and even your estranged brother who only reaches out to you on his deathbed. Fun for the whole family and even has some truly emotional scenes in it that will bring a grown man to tears. If you have only 1:29:20 left to live then live those moments like a king by watching this movie. Good animations and plot. I won't back down is masterfully used in this movie and its contributions culture is one of its crowning achievement. 12 years down the track I would watch it today and even 20 years from now I still feel it will hit its mark.

Yeah I don't really see this as a good movie.....but I do actually kind of respect this film, probably because there is a distinct feel to it. This film really wasn't like other family films of its time. I can still tell this was a passion project for director Steve Odekerk. Honestly, I think the dramatic moments are quite strong and heartfelt. The strongest element of this movie in my opinion is the surprisingly very strong relationship between the main character Otis and his adopted father Ben. If this was like a family heartfelt drama with some comedy, I think this actually could have been a very good film.

Barnyard is an embarrassment to the animation industry.

I grew up watching this! I just watched that on Netflix today and... I still like this movie! Barnyard represents an very good animation about animals that love to party and intelligent at the same time. Even tho there are some sad parts, this one is still watchable. Barnyard is 'also' a fun film, little comedy hidden that are funny enough, and pretty entertaining for this to stand the title. Pretty good enjoyable film!!

Barnyard is a generic, unfunny and badly animated film that doesn't deserve to get it's own series
Becuase this movie does not only get The Burning Medallion Of Badness but a place in my list of the worst movies of all time.

To put it simply, Barnyard is bland, annoying and a tonal mess!

Let's get this review started! Now, I'm no biology expert, but I am a film fan, and I saw this movie ten years ago at a drive-in, and it's still fun, but I do notice a flaw or two! Anyway, Barnyard opens up with a nice, country vibe song playing, establishing the tone and setting. We meet the farmer (Fred Tatasciore) tending to his farm (which he seems to do little throughout), and when he heads out to the fields, the animals start walking and talking. It's not like other movies where we're just perceiving their communications in a way we can understand, they are literally walking and talking, and apparently have to keep it a secret, which would make perfect sense considering the ramifications this would imply. If you suspend your disbelief (in a big way), you will enjoy this movie more, just letting you know, there are minor things like a seemingly negligent farmer, and cows that are male and not bulls (research bovine biology on your own time). Quite simply, remember these points: it is a universe where animals can walk and talk like us, but choose to keep it secret, and also, this is aimed at kids! It's not as smart as Pixar, and it doesn't have to be. When you let go, you'll enjoy a story about how Otis (Kevin James) must take charge when his adoptive father (Sam Elliot) is no longer able to lead the barnyard animals in their secret lives of walking, talking, and partying. The animation is a little more cartoonish than other studios, but there's still some ultra-realistic fur on the coyotes like Dag (David Koechner), which makes them look like the imposing threat they are to Otis and his friends, from Pip the mouse (Jeff Garcia), Freddy the weasel (Cam Clarke), Pip the rooster (Rob Paulsen), and Pig (Tino Insana). While each of them gets a fun moment, and every barn animal under the barn roof is given a moment, the real focus is Otis, and they all come off as one-dimensional. The character development is poor, but you will like Otis. All of this moves at a pace that will stay in a child's attention span, and give adults something quick and fun (if you watched this growing up), or outright confusing if you don't think too deeply about it. If you want something to take your mind off of that, try using the soundtrack, which has hits like Boombastic and several other songs, mostly with country vibes, with a score done by John Debney, conveying the appropriate emotions, and being there when the story needs it (Like Otis' dad for the farm). Barnyard is not the kind of movie with deep, subtle references, but it is a fun flick that will amuse children and adults who grew up with it or are willing to overlook some biological inaccuracies (if you think Otis should have been a bull, explain how you'd have made this movie with biological accuracy); nice soundtrack with lots of cool songs, acceptable animation, a linear plot, a relatable protagonist with under-developed sidekicks, and lots of humor derived from animals being animals with the ability to walk and talk like us humans, whether sheep follow like sheep, dogs chase the ball, etc. It's a fine, compelling-enough Nickelodeon movie.

When I saw this movie I was laughing so much with good humor and a good Comity!! And what makes this movie funny is that Otis is a mail cow and he has Udders. But female cows have udders. Not mail cows so that's what it makes it funny! And Otis walks on 2 legs so he is not a normal how he is pretty goofy and likes to play around!! So that's funny!! Otis is my favorite character!! The music in this movie is great to hear and listen to. See this funny movie!
