Trivia

When Otis is trying to figure out what knocked the farmer out, he tried to make it look like an apple fell on his head. This is relating to Sir Isaac Newton, when he discovered gravity. See more »

Goofs

A tractor appears in various scenes. The rear tires on the tractor are on backwards - the tread for tractor tires is designed to push mud out away from the tire when rotating forwards, to keep the treads from filling with mud. These tires would pull mud into the tread, making the tire slick and useless in deep mud. See more »

Quotes

Otis the Cow: WHAT?
Daisy the Cow: [giggles] I made you jump.
Otis the Cow: Oh, thank you. Very much. I swallowed my cud!
Daisy the Cow: [laughs, then looks up at the stars] It's so... beautiful...
Otis the Cow: My cud?

Short memories
17 December 2006 | by seeyounext2sdaySee all my reviews

I find it hilarious that so many people are gnashing their teeth and saying,"it's just a copy of The Lion King". This type of story didn't start in 1994 - the plot is ancient, with even Disney admitting that it was based on some of their earlier films, Hamlet and - get this - Exodus from the Bible (not including the fact that it was alleged that the whole movie was stolen from "Kimba the White Lion, but that's another matter). So, the genre is several millennia old. If people are going to accuse "Barnyard" of plagiarism, they should at least check the original source material before throwing stones.

Anyway, onto the film. I thought it was lightweight, but had some very funny parts. Thankfully, my children (13 and 8) are able to separate fact from fiction, so the images of bulls with udders, getting loaded on milk, stealing a car and evading the police whilst joyriding probably won't have too much of a negative impact on their lives. However, if, when they're older, they fall into the company of a gang of cows with attitude and a propensity for car theft, I'll know who to blame.

Some people really need to lighten up.
