Well... I have not watched Barney in years, because I am now 16 and I have grown out of it. But even at my age, I feel that every once in a while I need to relive the cutest and most charming moments of my life. To clarify, I never saw Barney's Great Adventure as a kid, but I only saw it just today on YouTube. I was checking it out to see if it was as bad as most people claim it to be and expected it to be a big waste of my time and really annoying, though admittedly I skipped an irrelevant musical number, but it turned out to be a movie that was, in my opinion, fine for little children. On the other hand, the real negative points are... the story is somewhat clichéd (i.e. disgruntled kid on their grandparent's farm during the summer and wanting fun, the race against time plot etc.), the film's message, at times, is often skewed. For example, just imagining something becomes something else does not happen instantly... for example, a fallen tree does not become a wooden airplane in 30 seconds just by imagining. On the plus side, the children could act OK, the visual effects, though sub-par, do look convincing to a toddler, and the ending with the little creature from the egg was admittedly kinda cute. And I'll give the movie credit for attempting to provide a good first time outing at the theatres for kids, as well as encouraging kids to imagine, but if you're a parent, grandparent, babysitter, teacher, caretaker etc., then you'll want to explain the real meaning of the message to kids. ... All in all, I realized how pessimistic I was at first and that I shouldn't always expect the worse to happen.
