Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this farmland adventure celebrates the power of dreams and imagination. Parents familiar with Barney and his buddies will know that there's very little to be concerned about in this movie. The only possible issues occur when a character steps in animal dung, during a brief scene in a French restaurant where adults soberly sip from wine, and when a character is a distracted driver as he makes a chocolate shake and a hamburger while trying to drive his truck.
