The film does boast an appealing buddy pairing in Wilson and Harrelson, a dash of conceptual originality, and some genuinely funny jokes.

It's weirdly confusing and structurally unsound, though no more so than any film about time travel, including Looper and Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. It is, however, enjoyable, with some funny lines.

After a brief lesson in American history, British kids will probably have a fine time. And there's just enough double-edged comedy to keep grown-ups from squawking too.

A lot of agreeable kookiness compensates for the ramshackle script in this tale of turkeys traveling back in time to prevent becoming an essential part of Thanksgiving dinner.

Free Birds not only rediscovers the giddy joy of being truly silly, it's confident enough to make us laugh without resorting to regurgitated pop-culture references or grownup double-entendres.

There are some good gags, the cast is incredibly likable and, most importantly, it held my kids' attention the entire time.

Poppy and entertaining, this computer-animated jaunt is mighty irreverent, a tonal cousin to the "Shrek" series in the way it appeals to grown-ups privy to all the slyly acerbic jokes going over the younger audience members' heads.

While what may be the first-ever major Thanksgiving-themed animated feature is fun for kids and witty enough for some adult giggles, I was slightly underwhelmed.

In the end, this freeform history lesson is a flightless foul.

Much of the better comedy is wasted on the younger viewers, with complex historical and cultural references kids just won't get.

Any given scene from Free Birds seems more like a YouTube parody of stupid children's films than a piece of something that real human beings put together with honest artistic intent.

These birds are good to look at, and you can easily get caught up in the characters. But the situation is a bit too much to swallow . . . even for Thanksgiving.

This family-friendly animation gets off to an amusing start but soon flies off into la-la land.

The muddled story and lacklustre animation makes this a film that's strictly for the birds.
