Come along with Otis, a carefree party cow, who together with his farm friends, enjoys singing, dancing, eating pizza and playing tricks on humans when they're not looking. You'll be laughing until the cows come home! Giving audiences a hilarious insight into what really happens in a barnyard when the farmer's back is turned, this fun-filled DVD adventure features an all-star voice cast including Kevin James, Courtney Cox, Wanda Sykes, Danny Glover, Andie MacDowell and Sam Elliot. The DVD also features a herd of outrageously fun bonus materials including 'Narnyard Bop,' an all-new hoof-tapping, uproarious music video exclusive to the DVD, that will have the whole family boogying!
Barnyard is a light-hearted, coming of age tale about a father and son relationship, centring around Otis (voiced by Kevin James), a chilled-out cow who loves to party! Unlike his father Ben (voiced by Sam Elliott), the respected patriarch of the farm, and Miles, the wise old mule (voiced by Danny Glover), Otis is unconcerned about keeping the animals' humanlike talents a secret. But when suddenly put in the position of responsibility, the udderly irresponsible cow finds the courage to be a leader.
Joined by his other Barnyard friends, Daisy (voiced by Courtney Cox), Bessy (voiced by Wanda Sykes) and Etta the hen (voiced by Andie MacDowell) these animals will show you that when the farmer's away all the animals will play...
The fully loaded DVD is packed with bonus features including a director, cast and animators' commentary, deleted scenes, the all-new, never-before-seen animated music video, Barnyard Bop, as well as the hilarious Mud Music Video and the Boogying in the Barn featurette. The DVD also features Method Acting with Kevin James, a riotous behind-the-scenes look at how the actor mooo'ed and chewed to prepare for his role.
A cheeky and naughty comedy, Barnyard is fresh, fun and unique, providing an engaging new story line and a fun adventure the whole family can enjoy. Full of surprises and laughter and packed with singing, dancing and music, the party never ends in Barnyard!
