Storyline

Barney is doing his chores when he overhears neighbor William Wildcat threating to tan his son's hide "til it glows in the dark". Barney explains to the father that any child can be tamed using psychology and uses a handy book to help look after his neighbor's son. However, Willie Wildcat is evil to the core. When they try playing "Pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey", Willie gets Barney kicked by a real donkey. When Barney bakes Willie a cake, Willie fills it with gas from the stove and it explodes. Finally, Barney takes the last chapter's advice ("If all else fails, BOTTOMS UP!") and he joins his neighbor in spanking the youngster. Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

Not bad for a Barney film
22 October 2000 | by (Oakland, CA) – See all my reviews

The Barney films have always depended on how good his nemesis is. His Wildcat neighbor's son fits the bill well enough, with each chapter in Barney's psychology book neatly dividing up the physical comedy setpieces. Still, nothing too special (though the final gag has a nice twist).
