The project was first announced in 1992 and began at New Line Cinema. But New Line eventually put the script in turnaround because of creative differences between Lyrick Studios' Stephen White and Sheryl Leach, and New Line Cinema CEO Robert Shaye and Executive Michael De Luca. White and Leach next pitched it to TriStar Pictures, but turned it down for unknown reasons. They even brought it to Miramax Films, but the studio also passed on it. Eventually, they brought it to Geffen Pictures and the film was in active development there. Unfortunately, Lyrick and Geffen's distributor Warner Bros. had disagreements over the film's potential marketing and production and the project moved to PolyGram. As the company handled international distribution of Barney videos, PolyGram greenlit the film pretty quickly. See more »

Barney was a big part of my childhood. Well, anti-Barney humor was a big part of my childhood. Yes, I was around when it first aired. I am so proud to say that it wasn't the first show I ever watched, as that would go to something like "Sesame Street" or "Mister Roger's Neighborhood". I don't know if this is even technically the first Barney movie. There may have been a few TV movies out there that came first. I don't care and don't want to watch them. I actually heard that even people who are Barney fans (yes, they exist) don't like this movie! A lot of things don't hold up as an adult and this is certainly one of them.
Is this worth all the hate it gets? Yeah, pretty much. I guess I don't hate it as much as most people and everyone will go nuts that I didn't give this a 1/10. You could use the argument that it's just something for kids, but that's not an excuse. The shows I just mentioned were for kids and they still hold up today. The late 90's really was a dark time for movies. It's a pity no one on Channel Awesome has reviewed this yet. I think this actually isn't quite made fun of as much as "Twilight" or "The Phantom Menace". To be fair to those, this really is worse than them.
The story just makes no sense. Baby Bop and BJ barely appear at all. Yeah, I'm not defending them. I'm just saying that the film could have had more variety if it had more than just Barney. They make a big deal about how the grandparents are going to see him. Everyone in the whole town saw him in public! Half of this movie is just spent looking for a lost egg. That's literally all that happens. Yeah, Barney does work in his trademark song at the end. There's much better stuff out there for your kids, but hey, this is still better than Carrot Top. *1/2
