Goofs

Barney and his friends visit a carnival midway which is just being set up, and talk to employees. The general public isn't there yet. Suddenly there's a rainstorm which forces the group to take shelter in a tent. When the storm ends, they go back outside to find a midway packed with people...all of whom must have arrived during the storm, and all of whom are bone dry (and standing in bright sunlight).

Barney's Great adventure or is it actually called, Barney's crappiest adventure?
8 December 2012 | by (califonia, USA) – See all my reviews

How I see the film, Barney's Great Adventure, it was DOWNRIGHT horse**** (sorry about the profanity). The Songs where like listing to Justin Bieber's song "Baby" (the fact that I can't stand the song), the film barely has any adventure, it just has nothing but chasing a rainbow egg and also having a fallen tree suddenly turn into a wooden airplane, by "imagination" and Barney, is just annoying and gay, if your some who enjoys this (no offense) you've hit the jackpot. Also this kid named Cody in the film said about Barney that, "real dinosaurs don't talk and real dinosaurs don't laugh" he's right, in fact he's a good example of maturity, (despite the fact that he's a total jerk in the film) well until Barney changes him. To me how I can see the reality of dinosaurs, if you've scene the film "Jurassic Park", they'll show you what dinosaurs do, they kill people and were awesome and real and were computer-generated, and don't have some guy inside a frigging dinosaur costume and have it sing annoying songs.

I've heard that it got a poor rating on Rotten Tomatoes along with some other negative reviews, as well as, being nominated two golden Razzies, for "Worst New Star" to Barney (who is not real) and "Worst Original Song" for the opening song, "Barney" (Hooray, it's a dream come true!). Also, if you've read the trivia on this website, what It mention was, South Park co-creator, Trey Parker volunteered to direct this film but was declined, which is a good thing that he'd directed something better than this. Also the funny thing about this is that if he'd directed this then he would have Cartman to use as Cody, that would be funny.

If your a parent who hates this film and thinks this film looks really awful, throw it in the trash and show your child a real G-rated musical, with better songs than the ones from Barney's Great Adventure, like for instance, "The Lion King" or "The Hunchback of Notre Dame".
