You're are much better off renting "Chicken Run" for an evening of entertainment with your progeny.

For parents who are tired of the hip, stupid bombast of films like Shark Tale, it'll do.

It's a tale with plenty of spirit and a good heart, and yet, this story doesn't so much soar across the screen as it does waddle.

Pode não ser uma obra-prima (não é mesmo), mas é suficientemente bem realizado para merecer uma conferida enquanto o novo projeto da Pixar não chega aos cinemas.

It's a happy and welcome debut, showing not only a genuine sense of humour and technical brilliance, but a clever ability to combine serious themes with family entertainment.

...this spunky little film doesn't let the minor matter of a bland central character and a lackluster script get it down.

The film soon proves to be not only unfunny, but something worse: boring.

A computer-animated movie from Disney about the contributions of carrier pigeons in World War II. Good topic, fair animation, but the story quacks like a duck.

Where are the real fairy tales -- the ones without the relentless number of jokes aimed at grown-ups?

Unfortunately, the dazzling colors and inspired vocal performances aren't enough to make the whole thing soar like an eagle.
