Does the Nick Park charm work for a feature film? In my opinion, not really.

Chicken Run is the funniest movie of the year, if you are under the age of 5 or suffering from severe head trauma.

Fowl by no means, this film is no feather in the cap, either.

It coaxes you to laugh and cry, flatters your intelligence, and practically guarantees a cheap night out: at dinner afterward, no one's going to be ordering anything but salad.

It's a warm-hearted and amusing entertainment that your children will enjoy.

Its plump chickens maintain that strange, haptic quality that makes you yearn to reach out and squeeze them.

Chicken Run contains some gorgeous, destined-to-be-classic set pieces, and this is where the Aardman production team flex their animation muscles.

The sly, sardonic flight of fancy known as Chicken Run is a delightful epic of fowl deeds, quests for freedom and poultry heroics from the off-kilter English cartoon house, Aardman Animation.

...a lot of the same offbeat charm as the Wallace & Gromit series

I don't think two minutes went by where I wasn't laughing out loud.

Like Wallace & Gromit, it's a paean to British eccentricity, equal parts cluelessness and hopefulness, full of English slang and dry Brit humor.

This chicken has legs -- lots of them.

The high-flying fun is limited solely be the poultry running time.
