Free Birds Reviews

January 11, 2020
Free Birds is a quite surprising little family movie. That concept of time-traveling turkeys to stop Thanksgiving is something you think would be deserving of a "c'mon son" greatly.

Free Birds, an animated buddy comedy that evokes the daffiness of classic Chuck Jones cartoons, is no turkey.

Free Birds is a funny film.

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.

Kids were laughing every minute at these birds and adults will appreciate the select moments of grown up humor.

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

...an entertaining animated offering that is not only themed to Thanksgiving, but will especially appeal to vegans and vegetarians.

What a weird little movie this is.

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.

Finally, there's a movie vegetarian parents can enjoy with their impressionable offspring.

Likable and amusing, if slight.

A more than worthy (and weird) holiday diversion for the whole family.
