Trivia

Snotty Boy looks very alike to the character Super from The PJs (1999), a stop motion animated show, previously on Fox, created by Eddie Murphy, Larry Wilmore, and Steve Tompkins. See more »

Goofs

(at around 41 mins) After the farmer has been knocked out and Pip sits on the man's wrist to feel the pulse, Pip is sitting on the "pinky" side of the hand. The radial pulse in the wrist is detectable on the "thumb" side of the hand. However, the cubital pulse, though usually weaker, can be felt on palpation in most people. See more »

a solid animated film
15 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Barnyard is another in the entertaining animated films that attempt to please all audiences. There's much good humor in this film and many sight gags as well as the usual shenanigans. The film is well put together technically, but there are some things about the film that just don't hit the spot. I didn't have any sympathy for the lead character Otis. Perhaps it was just the mood I was in, but the characters just didn't come through and I didn't feel much of an emotional response through most of the film. I think it was a little too teen for me. If you want some good teen-ish laughs, this is for you. Otherwise go with Cars or Over the Hedge.
