Added DiffLines:

* BlackAndGreyMorality: Dag and his coyotes are pretty clear villains. The heroes can be pretty loving, well-meaning, and look out for each other but they are also not perfect role models. The animals of the barnyard, except for the hens, Ben, and Miles, act pretty much like college kids or young adults.

Added DiffLines:

* CentralTheme: "A strong man stands up for himself, a stronger man stands up for others". According to Steve Odekerk, the movie is about family and what makes a family is people being there for each other and caring for one another.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtStyleDissonance: The cartoony CGI cows fit in fine with the goofy farm antics. The dark Western revenge story which ''[[NeverTrustATrailer actually]]'' drives the plot, not so much....


Added DiffLines:

* HalfwayPlotSwitch: For the first half-hour or so of the film, it's an entertainingly silly WackyFratboyHijink plot with cows. Then [[spoiler: Otis' father]] dies and it becomes a dark revenge Western story...with cows.

Otis is a [[IncrediblyLamePun party animal cow]], one of many barnyard animals who hide their walking and talking lifestyle from humanity. Ben, the leader of the barn and Otis's father, is constantly assuring his son that he'll have to shape up and improve his attitude one day. Sure enough, one night of irresponsibility leads to Ben's death at the hands of the evil coyote Dag and his pack. With Otis elected as the new leader, he must look out for all the other animals and struggle with accepting responsibility for others, all while coping with the developing feelings he has for the newest addition to the barnyard, Daisy, a pregnant cow.
