    Synopsis


    Chicken Run
    Aardman Animations, the British clay-animation studio that created a cult sensation (and won three Academy awards) with its short subjects featuring Wallace and Gromit, presents its first feature film, a mixture of comedy and adventure. Mrs. Tweedy (voice of Miranda Richardson) operates a chicken farm, where most of the birds have resigned themselves to a short and uneventful life of producing eggs and ending up as the main course of someone's Sunday dinner. But when Rocky (voice of Mel Gibson), a rooster from America, arrives on the farm, things begin to change. Rocky soon finds romance with a hen named Ginger (voice of Julia Sawalha) who longs for a better life and has been trying to find a way out of the farm for some time; together they devise a plan to escape to freedom. However, Rocky and Ginger soon find themselves racing against the clock when Mrs. Tweedy decides it's time to turn the entire flock into chicken pies. Nick Park, director of the Wallace and Gromit shorts, co-directed Chicken Run with Peter Lord, who produced several Aardman projects and created animation for the TV series Pee-Wee's Playhouse. The voice cast also includes Jane Horrocks, Phil Daniels, and Timothy Spall. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      'Chicken Run' is a beautifully animated family feature about a bunch of chickens (mainly hens), who are trying to break out of their farm with the aid of a rooster (voiced by Mel Gibson), once they find out they aren't going to be used for egg production anymore, but instead are to be terminated and become Kentucky Fried Chicken dinners. Widescreen and plenty of bonus features, recommended!

      Great escape for Chickens, I hope my grandson will like it. He does like Shawn the sheep, and Gromit the dog series. Reminds me of Gumby.

      Such a cute family movie! I love the animation. Each hen had her own personality and was funny in her own way which was great. I highly recommend this movie.
