Insipid and made my daughter cry
12 October 2007 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I know it's cool to hate Barney, but this really is a bad movie. The TV show, as dumb as it is, at least entertains kids. This movie actually frightened my four year old daughter. She didn't enjoy the movie and only watched it to make sure everything was okay by the end. She was sad and anxious most of the movie.

The "plot" is nothing but a serious of perilous events, one after another, with the occasional (and out of place) Barney song interlude.

Adults will hate everything about this movie. The movie is also very dark and hard to see much of the time.

I would not recommend this movie to anyone, even Barney fans.
