The animals take over in the hilarious animated hit "Barnyard" (2006). Kevin James stars as Otis, a carefree bull who prefers partying to responsibility. Sam Elliott voices his loving father, Ben, who has had about enough of Otis's partying ways. When Benunexpectedly dies, Otis is thrust into the role of leader and must avenge his father's death. With a rag-tag group of barnyard animals (Courteney Cox, Danny Glover, Andie MacDowell), Otis attempts to track down the coyotes who killed his father and learns something about himself in the process.
