Pros: Very good animation and character studies of the hens

Cons: Not a heavyweight

I generally don't go see animated films as they are just too stupid for words. This one.... was different. Smart, witty and overall very funny. The story of chickens that overcome in the end!

The chickens live on a British farm run by a very nasty "Mrs Tweedy" and her bumbling husband. She rules the farm with an iron fist and eventually wants to do in her whole flock.

The hens who are wonderfully animated and have funny personalities manage to finally escape to a life of leisure. "Never give up" is the dominant theme of this charming movie.

There were several scenes that might be too strong for smaller children such as chickens being made into pies and having their heads chopped off.

I certainly will never look at chickens the same way again! A nice summer film that had plenty of laughs.
