It is not only an amazing technical accomplishment, it's also the wittiest and best-voiced animated movie to come along in years.

Chicken Run boasts the most delicious collection of desperately funny Brits since The Full Monty. Poultry has never been so stuffed with personality.

The finale and a scene set inside the pie-making machinery prove that the Rube Goldberg formula is infallible, and the puns -- another staple of crossover animation -- range from "fowl" to "poultry in motion."

There are some mighty fine laughs in this clever Claymation cartoon from the creator of England's hilarious Wallace and Gromit movies.

The level of invention on display, from the vividly detailed models and figurines to the gallery of memorable supporting characters, is astonishing at any length.

"Chicken Run's" finale is on par both with "The Great Escape" and the classic Wallace and Gromit ending to "A Close Shave" for rousing excitement and ingenuity. When it comes to clever and fun entertainment with a twist, it's the cock of the walk.

The sophisticated humor of Peter Lord and Nick Park's very funny comedy is more likely to strike a nerve with adults.

Park's love for all his characters, good and evil, is literally palpable: These characters have been forged of clay, fussed over, posed, photographed over a period of years.

I know I've seen a good funny animal movie if I stop eating the animal in real life.

It has intelligence, humor, drama and tragedy, dance numbers, amour and more, any of which will have appeal to someone out there.

It's a wonder to know that each frame of this film was handmade, not orchestrated by a computer.

Something about Nick Park's characters is intrinsically hilarious... Maybe it's those teeth.
