    This movie is awesome! Otis is my funniest and favorite character in the entire film!

    When will this ever get its own spin-off sequel?! It has been 7 years since the movie was last released and still no sequel!

    Fabulous kids movie. Very funny, moving without a hint of cheese. Fast paced with great use of music.

    This was a perfect movie to take our granddaughter to see. It was funny and entertaining. Cute storyline. It was refreshing to sit and be entertained without having to worry if something offensive was going to pop up!

    Why the heck this animation has so many low scores? For me it's fun, interesting and perfect for any age! Great story, fun and unique characters and emotional scenes... 10/10

    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.
