Trapped behind barbed wire, fearing for their very lives, Rocky, Ginger, Bunty, Babs and Fowler hatch a desperate plan to fly the coop in our story of poultry in motion... CHICKEN RUN. We are at Tweedy's Chicken Farm, where any chicken who doesn't make her egg quota can meet a "fowl" fate. But Ginger and her fellow flock are determined to break out before they can be fried, filleted or fricasseed.
Animated - Don't let the clay animation fool you--while the animation is great
and will thus delight the kiddies, the sophisticated humor in this
comic adventure is clearly aimed toward the adults. In short, a
that the whole family can truly enjoy.
PROFANITY: Rare use of mild profanity. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Non-graphic instances of violence, mostly comical. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None. ACTION: Fights and chases. COMEDY: Lots of physical humor plus witty verbal humor.
With its fast food tie-in and Saturday morning advertising campaign, DreamWorks is going the traditional marketing route and selling the claymation feature Chicken Run to the young 'uns. While that strategy may just yet succeed in drawing in family audiences, I wouldn't be at all surprised if the grown-ups made a return trip all by themselves, for the sophisticated humor of Peter Lord and Nick Park's very funny comedy is more likely to strike a nerve with adults.
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 (Julia Sawaiha) 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 (Miranda Richardson), finds a new way to feather her own nest—turning chickens into chicken pies. Now, with the help of Rocky (Mel Gibson), "the lane free ranger," the chickens hatch their most spectacular plan to fly the coop in our story of poultry in motion.. CHICKEN RUN.
