    This movie is terrible and here's why, the animation is downright ugly and the characters aren't likable at all and I didn't care about them at all, The voice acting is ok but everything else is just plain bad.

    Barnyard is a cow patty.
    The entire film is animated stupidity. The storyline is little to non existent, nearly every character is unlikeable, and the entire premise feels unnatural.

    It shouldn't be surprising that writer-director Steve Oedekerk, the man responsible for "Kung Pow! Enter The Fist" and the second "Ace Ventura" movie, considers single-celled organisms as he shoots for the lowest common denominator.

    It feels like Barnyard swipes too much of its plot from "The Lion King."

    Even an advanced case of critter fatigue shouldn't stop you from rushing out to see this delightfully cheeky animated tale.
