There's a duck, a comedian, an award-winner, and Queen. Love Birds really shouldn't go wrong, yet it can't help but overcook simple ingredients.

Audience Reviews for Love Birds


Love Birds is one of the good movies coming out of New Zealand these days. Light hearted and well acted, its a feel good movie free of political ideology. While Sally Hawkins is better known for some of her other roles, this is one of her best.

Sweet tale of a lost bird with injured wings learning to fly again, and bringing a similar coupla humans (zookeeper and foreman) along on the ride. Nice cinematography and ornithography :)

An odd and goofy New Zealand duck out of the air film. Part of the oddness is the Queen soundtrack that runs throughout. Despite its awkwardness, it has appeal as a family film. Corny but fun.
