All of the bovines, regardless of their sex, have udders.

The description of the film makes it sound like Animal Farm or something, but really it’s just a weak remake of The Lion King. We already know that Oedekerk is a big Lion King fan – Mu-Shu Fasa!

The only reason that I didn’t turn it off was that it was made by Steve Oedekerk – I figured that maybe it’s got some off-the-wall shit, like Kung Pow did. I was wrong – Barnyard is more in the vein of Ace Ventura or Patch Adams – lowest common denominator type crap.

This movie wasn’t good. My son paid attention to it for a grand total of 20 minutes. I asked him if he liked it and he said yes – but what do three year old know? Did this even come out in the theater? I seriously don’t recall ever hearing of it.

I just realized that the udder thing is a joke. That wacky Steve Oedekerk and his cow jokes.
