All Critics (20) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (20)

  • Chicken People director Nicole Lucas Haimes has found an engaging bunch of obsessives to guide us through the complexities that govern the world of the competitive poultry show.

  • The trick is in the tone, which is amused but not derisive, and in the understanding that a film about chickens needs to be a film about people first of all.

  • Chicken pride and genetic engineering are at the heart of this winsome, semi-serious non-mocking documentary about the exacting preparations a very diverse group of chicken-loving yokels undertake for the 2015 Ohio National Poultry Show.
