Time traveling turkeys not so fun after all.

245: Free Birds. An animated movie about time traveling turkeys who venture back to the first Thanksgiving to save turkeys from becoming the dish of choice going forward. This sounded like a very strange movie and usually strange movies pique my interest, this one did so I decided to give it a try. The creative team clearly stopped after time traveling turkeys. All the jokes are in the first 20 minutes of the movie and after that it becomes a standard animated movie where the turkeys fight off the settlers before we reveal an important character trait that changes everything going forward. The first 20 minutes were pretty funny and had some clever bits but after that, it become a slog to get through. The characters become irritating. I understand that this is a kids movie. I've enjoyed kids movies in the past. I'm a little goofy and silly myself from time to time. The idea of time traveling turkeys drew me into the tent to see the show. It just could not live up to the other end of the bargain. The other odd thing about the turkeys in the past which threw me off was the fact that some of them resembled native Americans even though we had the human versions in the movie already. Not everyone in the flock was like this, one of them was a short angry bird looking fool who spoke with a caricatured Italian accent. This movie was pilfering from quite a few other films. It had some bits of Avatar thrown in there. It had a lot of Avatar actually. This is a bit of a spoiler if you've not seen Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes.......

It had the ending of Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes where an egg looking shuttle comes back from the past in the middle of the battlefield to stop the fighting. I imagine this was meant to be parody. In the end, this had a nugget of a funny idea but didn't know what to do with it. I give this film a D.

Maybe Not the Worst, But Properly the Most Stupidest Animated Film I've ever seen

Before the fantastic The Book of Life, Reel FX gave us Free Birds and It is one of the most laziest and annoying animated comedies I have ever seen, the characters are not all that memorable, the story is stupid, the jokes are generically juvenile. I know It's a comedy and Your not to supposed to take It seriously, but I just didn't care what was going on.

The only good things is the animation is half-way decent, It has some funny/quiet moments but that's not saying much, the Voice-Acting Is passable from Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson and Amy Poehler.

Not much else to say but just bad, not the worst but defiantly Top 5, I'll say It's on par with the Nut Job being just mediocre.

Watch the Book of Life instead of this, It's not worth your money.

I'm giving this a 2/10.

Sufficiently entertaining but very average

Watchable is the word that springs to mind for 'Free Birds'. This movie does enough to be mildly entertaining but contains few moments that will make you laugh, especially considering that this is supposed to be an animated 'comedy'.

The film is silly and perhaps the filmmakers were expecting to get laughs out of the plot alone, but this isn't the case. I can see younger viewers enjoying this film, obviously kids are the primary target audience, but even so I doubt they would choose this over the many other, vastly superior, animated comedies.

'Free Birds' is a sufficiently entertaining animated film, but it lacks the laughs to consider it a comedy success.
