Barnyard Reviews

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.

Loud, raucous and dispiritingly unfunny.

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?

Could qualify as a case study in just how quickly and thoroughly computer-animated studio releases have declined to a state of inspiration-depleted, assembly-line anthropomorphism.

A sweet and mildly funny movie that will entertain young audiences, but one aspect is utterly mystifying: The two main characters, father and son bovine creatures, have large, distracting udders.

This is a darn cute movie and I think you'll find it funny.

Politically correct, anatomically incorrect and ugly to look at, the only thing that saves Barnyard is writer (and director) Steve Oedekerk's gift for gags and almost-edgy humor.

The movie still just plods along, and there's nothing very new here.

If you want to punish your kids, send them to bed without dinner. If you want to disturb, frighten and depress them while making sure they fail biology, take them to the animated feature Barnyard.
