Barnyard: The Original Party Animals

Overall B

It's an undisclosed fact that the animals in the Barnyard are a lot smarter than they appear to their human keepers. But their secret may be utterly spoiled by a comedic cow named Otis (voiced by Kevin James). Nor do things improve when this ambitious moo-ver and shaker tries to lead the rest of the herd.

Why is Barnyard: The Original Party Animals rated PG? Barnyard: The Original Party Animals is rated PG by the MPAA some mild peril and rude humor

While Ben is eager to teach his son a sense of responsibility, Otis is all about having a good time. Sometimes that results in rude comments as well as irresponsible behavior such as driving in a stolen car with open bottles of milk that mimic the behavior of humans driving under the influence of alcohol. But not everything is fun and games. When the farmer inadvertently comes across the festivities, he is repeatedly kicked in the head while the animals decide how to cover their tracks. After coyotes attack the creatures on the farm, the untimely death of one of the animals causes a showdown in the junkyard that includes some scary and tense moments for young viewers. The brief discussion and portrayal of pregnancy and childbirth are also included.
