Movie Reviews

Not quite the Best of Barney, but still "Super Dee Duper"
Drew Pierce | Edina, MN United States | 01/13/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After being disappointed from Dino-Mite Birthday, I had high hopes for this DVD. And you know what? It was just as I hoped. I may spoil the video a bit, but the plot is pretty simple. Tracy brought souvenirs from her beach trip back for her friends, including Barney, so Barney gets out his memory box to put it in. However, the lid is stuck! After many attempts, the box explodes (or as they say later on, "kablooie!") open with memoric items galore. Barney through out the video looks back at great times those items remind him of. Like Sing and Dance with Barney, a few familiar faces appear. In particular, Stella and Mr. Boyd, to bring the nostalgia factor to older fans of the series or people who watched it with their kids in the 90's/early 2000's. Stella presents a book to Barney which features video clips of almost all the kids who have been on the TV show (even the original TV cast (Tina, Luci, Michael, Kathy, etc.)). Where it gets interesting though is not in the actual video, but in the bonus features. In "Barney's Favorite Memories", a special featurette, Barney goes down memory lane with his "home movies" and talks about his early memories as well as current ones. In addition he also mentions the very kind act of him visiting children in hospitals. In the other featurette, I Love You is sung in various languages with videos of Barney in different countries. This includes the original productions (not dubs) from Korea and Israel (which is also on DVD). Overall, I think it's not quite the Best of Barney, since almost all the clips are from Seasons 7-11 and most of the best clips in my opinion are from the early seasons (then again, I grew up on them). Still, it deserves a five star rating for the nostalgia in the bonus features and possibly in the main video too. If you grew up on Barney as a kid, still love him to this day or just like Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato (they appear together in one flashback), The Best of Barney is highly reccomended."
Just Dreadful

"A cynical mishmash of clips to celebrate (the latter part of) Barney's last twenty years. Highlights weak songs and weaker "new" characters. The scenes at the circus border on creepy. They're is even a hip-hop version of "Baa, Baa Black Sheep".....groan! Ignore the neat packaging and go find instead DVDs from the "Classic Barney" collection -- titles like "Barney Rhyme Time", "Lets play school" and "outdoor fun". The shows don't feel dated and they were made with a great deal more care."
My son LOVES it!

"I got the DVD for my son when we went away, to keep him entertained during four hour plane ride. He didn't care for it on the plane, but once we got home, all he was saying is "barney, barney" (and he doesn't speak English). He loves the songs and dances to it."
Great DVD
