Kids' farmyard yarn is missing animal magic; BARNYARD ** PG.

DOWN on the farm, the barnyard creatures like nothing better than to stand up on two legs, enjoy some smalltalk and set up a shindig.

Otis the cow (male voice, female udders, go figure) is the main party animal until a pack of coyotes kill his dad and he has to face up to his responsibilities. This isn't The Lion King and it's not Animal Farm.

The story sticks to the obvious, but at least there are some wacky little scenes that might stop the kids from heading to the toilet every 10 minutes.
