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.

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.

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.

By the time the sky really does start 'falling' -- courtesy of an alien invasion -- Chicken Little's frantic efforts to stay farm fresh have started to wear on the nerves.

Top Critic

I don't care if it's 2-D, 3-D, CGI or hand drawn, it all goes back to the story.

Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

This film's procession of dumb clucks and yuks manages to bring the roof down on occasion, if only through sheer manic exertion.
