Movie Review: Barnyard

May 28, 2007

barnyard_dvd.jpgLast night I was looking to watch something light, and went with the CGI film, Barnyard. I hadn’t really heard a lot about it, so I wasn’t expecting much.

The film is about a barnyard of animals that get wild n’ crazy when the farmer’s not around. The main character is a cow named Otis (voiced by Kevin James). He doesn’t like responsibility and just wants to have fun all day. His Dad, Ben, is the “leader” at the farm, and is the complete opposite of Otis. When coyotes threaten the farm, it’s up to Otis to either shape up, or let his friend’s be attacked.

The movie starts out pretty slow, but picks up about mid-way through. It’s definitely in the lower class of CGI films (although the animation is great), but it’s still worth the watch. It’s more geared towards kids, and not as much for adults, whereas films like Finding Nemo or The Incredibles were entertaining for both.

If you have kids, I’m sure they will love it, but unless you really like CGI films, or are in the mood for something light, don’t expect a whole lot from Barnyard.

My Rating: 6/10
