Chicken Run is a delightfully charming movie that will make you think twice about the intelligence of chickens. It's a funny and quirky British kids movie featuring great voice talent and a good story.
The idea of chickens being made into pies is considerably more horrifying after seeing this movie and the various escape attempts made by Ginger are hilarious. It's particularly funny when Mr. Tweedy catches the chickens planning and scheming, as he thinks he's going insane. Chicken Run is a fun movie made in the style of Wallace & Gromit and it will make you smile and laugh.
