This is a great movie, one that I remember really enjoying the first time I ever saw it, and one that has been watched many times in the week since it first came into our home. My daughter loves this movie, and I love watching it too. It has a great story, great animation, and is perfect for a family to watch. Definitely one to share with the children, if you have any, or watch even if you don'... read more

A masterpiece a decade ago and a masterpiece now!

After the huge success of Creature Comforts and Wallace And Gromit, expectations of Chicken Run were exceedingly high! Chicken Run is almost like an animated version of the classic film The Great Escape with the same music and very similar dialogue! I have to say that Chicken Run is one of the smartest and most extraordinary animated films that I think have ever been made! It is a very British fil... read more

A fun film featuring many well-known British voices. And I seem to recall an obscure American in the line up as well (just kidding, Mel).

I'm a big fan of Nick Park's work as I've always been in stop-motion animation. It has a realistic feel that Pixar-style animation has only been able to simulate in the last few years because it's so computationally demanding. I recommend the DVD ... read more

Description: They are prisoners--trapped behind barbed wire, fearing for their very lives and dreaming only of the outside world. Every escape attempt is thwarted, and the ringleader tossed into solitary to do hard time. But this is no ordinary prison... and these are no ordinary jailbirds. They're the inmates at Tweedy's Egg Farm, where any chicken who doesn't put breakfast on the table can wind up as dinner. But Ginger and her fellow flock are determined to break out before they meet a "fowl" fate. Time is running out as the greedy owner of the farm, Mrs. Tweedy finds a new way to feather her own nest--turning chickens into chick ... (more)

A good movie

“To be honest, it has been a while since I saw this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. I wonder if I actually saw it in the movie theater when it was released at the time. Anyway, since I really loved all these Wallace & Gromit shorts, it was just really neat that Nick Park was coming up with this first full length feature with the same claymation technique. I was also glad that he came up with some new characters so this movie was really promising. Well, to be honest, I actually ended up with some mixed feelings about the damned thing. I mean, the whole thing looked once again quite amazing, absolutely, and it was quite entertaining but I can’t say I was really blown away. In my opinion, the story was decent but not really strong and, above all, all these chicke” read more

"After watching this stop-motion animated tale about a group of not-so spring chickens who are lookin' to get sprung, it made me realize that when it comes to writing about these kinds of movies, I don't always have feel obligated to use any obvious puns no matter how much they might be staring me in the face. F'rinstance, right now, I am sorely tempted to insert the phrase "flying the coup" somewhere into this description box. But I'm not going to. That would be too easy. So instead, what I'm go"
