Alas, no amount of pop-culture in-jokes and cutesy characters can conceal the fact there isn't enough story to sustain a film even of this limited duration.

It's got heart and it's got style -- what's missing is laughs.

The writing, however, lets the whole thing down.

Although a perfectly presentable animated comedy, it lacks any sense of magic or true innovation.

So this new Chicken Little is a hero, of sorts: a feisty little nerd in green hipster specs, who bounces off walls and babbles like Woody Allen.

The cleverness just isn't there.

The wishy-washy self-empowerment tale hinges on the lack of communication between Chicken Little and his single father Buck Cluck, something best reserved for an episode of Oprah...

Interesting to watch, I guess, but the folks at Pixar needn't watch their backs just yet...this ain't even close to the coolness they churn out on a regular basis.

Funny, fast paced, well-voiced, and beautifully animated.

It has a fresh visual style and keeps the bodily function jokes to a minimum (like Pixar), but they also stuffed the movie to the gills with pop song after pop song.

The animators and voice actors have a great deal of sly fun bringing this misfit foursome to life.

Disney's first all-CGI effort not made by Pixar, looks cheap, bland, plasticene and often fuzzy.

Little and his posse of outcasts (Ugly Duckling, Runt, the fat pig, and Fish out of Water) endear, but the rest of the film is derivative and uninspired.

It's an antic journey with the doors locked and no stops permitted, sadly characteristic of the aggressively didactic, falsely whimsical nature of Disney's modern age.

Can someone please explain what's with the shades-wearing Corey Heart wannabe Morkubine Porcupine? His random presence is most likely an inside joke, and we are not amused.

Traditional cel animation may be dead, but it'll be remembered fondly. Pop ephemera like Chicken Little is more likely to be smiled at once, then instantly forgotten.

Looks and feels like an extended episode of a TV cartoon.

The chicken and his dad seem to feel a bit like Foghorn Leghorn from the Warner Brothers cartoon

The real disappointment here is the flatness of the humor.
