Critic Reviews of "Barnyard"Chicago ReaderMay 18, 2010
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.Time OutOctober 19, 2006
Loud, raucous and dispiritingly unfunny.AV ClubAugust 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.New York TimesAugust 12, 2006
Don't the filmmakers know there are children watching -- and listening?Toronto StarAugust 04, 2006
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.USA TodayAugust 04, 2006
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.Empire Magazine AustralasiaNovember 07, 2012
A shockingly crass grab for holiday pocket money that's both infantile and endlessly patronising.Common Sense MediaJanuary 01, 2011
A re-hash of tired cliches and CGI effects.ColeSmithey.comApril 21, 2009
Criminal acts and scenes of brutal violence spoil the effect of "Barnyard" as an animated movie for tots.TheMovieReport.comAugust 25, 2007
That the lead character is a 'male cow' complete with udders shows how confused the picture is.Movies for the MassesFebruary 19, 2007
A beatifully animated simple but fun plot, carries enough giggles for all age groups.DVDTalk.comDecember 08, 2006
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.
