Decent Enough For Kids, Adults May Not Get Past The Goofiness
If you could go back to 2006, you’d find yourself smack dab in the middle of the talking animal computer generated feature film era.  Blue Sky was riding high on the Ice Age films, DreamWorks had Madagascar & Over the Hedge, Sony had Open Season and even Disney wanted in with The Wild.  Nickelodeon/ Paramount Pictures wanted in on the action and that leads us to Barnyard- The Original Party Animals.       I suppose the only way to begin this review is …

The first thing you need to know about BARNYARD all the cows in the movie have udders, including the males.

Apart from borrowing liberally from the basic premise of the Lion King (an orphaned cow goes from party animal to protector, that even includes a pivotal scene when the father paints the child's destiny in the stars), this film attempts to be about fathers and sons, but the filmmakers appear to have been uneasy with a literal depiction of male bovines (i.e. bulls). So they compromised by making even the males into cows (they even called themselves cows), complete with udders and absent other distinguishing …
