Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average Visually, Chicken Little doesn't offer anything special. Seemingly designed to look a little like a computerized version of Looney Tunes, the movie lacks the meticulous detail of many of its contemporaries.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average It's a perfectly acceptable feature cartoon for kids up to a certain age, but it doesn't have the universal appeal of some of the best recent animation.
USA TodayFull Review Good As creature features go, lusciously pigmented, child-friendly Chicken Little is no Howard the Duck. But it also isn't quite the computer-animated home run Disney really needs post-Pixar,...

It is now one year after the "unfortunate acorn incident” when Chicken Little caused big-time havoc in his hometown of Oakey Oaks by proclaiming that the sky was falling after being conked on the head by what appeared to be an acorn. Down but not out, the plucky chicken joins the local baseball team in the hopes of reviving his reputation and winning the respect of his father, Buck Cluck. When he leads the town to an upset victory, he becomes the toast of the town. But no sooner has the champion chicken redeemed himself when he is hit on the head one more time. And this time the sky really is falling! Fearful of once again being labeled crazy, he is reluctant to tell anyone what has happened. Instead, he enlists the help of his closest pals—Runt of the Litter, Abby Mallard (aka Ugly Duckling), and Fish Out of Water—in an attempt to save the day without sending the town into a whole new panic.
