From Steve Oedekerk and Nickelodeon Movies, creators of "Jimmy Neutron:
Boy Genius," comes this entirely-CGI animation, hilarious look at
what really happens in a barnyard when the farmer's back is turned. "Barnyard"
is a lighthearted tale centering around Otis (voiced by Kevin James),
a carefree party cow, who enjoys singing, dancing and playing tricks on
humans. 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.
