When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan, and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it's up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home. (C) Lionsgate

    Witty and funny, Shaun the Sheep's charm works for both children and adults.

    I grew up having a few of the Wallace and Gromit films on VHS and so I was excited to see what Aardman Animations next had in store. Shaun the Sheep comes from the same company and producers and is one of the most innocently fun rides you'll have watching a film in 2015. The animation is spectacular and it's humor for kids and adults is hilariously impressive. There's no dialogue besides giggles and some mumbled yelling between characters, but you never need it. You know exactly what the characters are feeling purely based on the music and facial expressions. Coming from British writers and producers, the humor is definitely a little bit different than something we would see in an American kids movie, but it works nonetheless. The good thing about this movie over something like Minions, also a summer release, is that there's tons of silly humor but there's also some heart within this story as well. You're always rooting for Shaun and his crew of sheep to find their owner and get back to the farm. The burp/fart jokes are there, but not has overbearing as some other kids films. Knowing that this comes from a stop motion animation company, makes the physical humor all the more impressive. All of the action is seamless. The movie made me laugh more out loud by myself than Minions did watching it with an entire audience. Shaun the Sheep is a film all audiences will enjoy from kids to adults alike. I sure hope they make more of these. +Brilliant humor +Beautiful animation +Funny story with heart 8.4/10

    Great for children of all ages, as the saying goes, as a small rebellion against monotony turns really bad and the mutineers must avail themselves to set things right. Particularly fun in all of this is that most everything is done in pantomime, which is both very hard and very clever. Me likey.

    Coming from Aardman studios (who gave us Wallace and Gromit and the truly excellent Chicken Run) we have Shaun the Sheep based on the series of the same name. The plot is simple: a clever sheep and his friends have to find their amnesiac owner who is lost in the big city and return him to their country farm, while avoiding animal control. But the execution is beyond clever - it's fucking genius. The movie is completely rendered using clay animation and not one word of dialogue is used. If it wasn't a children's movie, I would be tempted to call it a wordless work of existential art. But beyond the concept, Shaun the Sheep is an adorable experience for children and their parents and for the odd filmgeek like me who can enjoy the sincere, touching moments in addition to all the slapstick.
