Chicken Little (2005)



Critic Consensus: In its first non-Pixar CGI venture, Disney expends more effort in the technical presentation than in crafting an original storyline.

Movie Info

As you may recall the classic fable, Chicken Little caused widespread panic when he mistook a falling acorn for a piece of the sky. And now, the young chicken is determined to restore his reputation, but just as things are starting to go his way, a real piece of the sky lands on his head! Suspense, chaos and plenty of laughs ensue as Chicken Little and his band of misfit friends, Abby Mallard (aka Ugly Duckling), Runt of the Litter and Fish Out of Water, attempt to save the world without sending the town into a whole new panic. This time, when it comes to saving the world, it helps to be a little chicken.more

Critic Reviews for Chicken Little

All Critics (159) | Top Critics (39)

Animation fans will find this worth the wait, though apparently there's no story-generating software that can tap into the dark recesses of a child's psyche as cannily as Uncle Walt once did.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

Only a singularly subversive sidekick, a Streisand-obsessed porker (Zahn), makes this movie stand out from a host of other mediocre animated kids' flicks.

Time Out
Top Critic

By a comfortable margin the worst feature to come out of the Disney Studios since they invented the American feature-length cartoon in 1937.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Heavy with the sweat of a studio straining to snatch the kids back by throwing digi-crayons, potty jokes, and disco tunes at the lens

Full Review… | September 1, 2009

A bland byproduct of too many cooks in the kitchen, with not enough ideas on how to bring their different sub-plots together into a cohesive entertaining film for kids.

Cinema Crazed

Tasteful vocal performances, by a talented cast including Zach Braff, Garry Marshall and Steve Zahn, can't relieve Disney's first inhouse all-computer generated animation movie from its music video trappings and inadequate storyline.
