Movie Info

A flock of small birds perched high atop a telephone wire are joined by a dopey bigger bird that just wants in on some of the fun in this Academy Award-winning animated short from Pixar. While at first the larger fowl doesn't realize that he is being made fun of, a curious development finds out clueless but lovable feathered friend eventually getting the last laugh.

Audience Reviews for For The Birds

Very funny as this Pixar short film is comic perfection. Remember how the Coyote in the Road Runner cartoons always looks plaintively at the camera whenever he makes a mistake, the pupils of his eyes narrowing just before he falls off the cliff, the boulder crushes him, or the dynamite explodes in his face? That was the kind of touch that made those old cartoons great. And it is clear from this film that the spirits of Chuck Jones, Tex Avery and the other classic animators are alive and well at Pixar.

For The Birds is the side-splittingly hilarious short animated movie that preceded the rather unimpressive Monsters, Inc. Pixar is becoming more and more famous for the hilarity of their movies and For The Birds is definitely no exception. This movie is a very simple short, with no dialogue. The little birds are really cool with great facial expressions and manage to be really likeable. The big bird looks real goofy and it's easy to join the little birds in mocking him. The animation is superb, the backgrounds are bright and colourful and each feather on each bird looks really realistic. The short is very funny - funnier than it sounds, the little birds are really funny, kids will love it because all the comedy is visual, adults will love it because it's not too childish. It feels better than it is because it is a one-joke short.
