When I saw the trailer I wasn't sure if the tried-and-true Shaun the Sheep format (short, funny skit-based episodes with no dialog) would translate well to a full-length film. I should have had more faith in Aardman. The movie is fun, fast-paced, never drags, and keeps you laughing throughout.

There are some fun new characters. My kids and I particularly enjoyed the new villain, A. Trumper. He is an egomaniac animal control warden with a crush on what he believes to be an attractive woman but is actually a sheep in human clothing. When I asked my kids what there favorite parts of the movie were, all of them revolved around Trumper's ridiculous antics while trying to capture the flock. There is also a lovable stray dog and a few others but Trumper stands out.

There are plenty of nods to pop culture that put a smile on my face but that my kids completely missed. Of course there is a Silence of the Lambs reference (in a dialog-free movie about lambs...). I caught a few others. The nod to Banksy was probably my favorite. Pay attention while watching because the level of detail on the sets is incredible.

The themes in the movie are positive and emphasize teamwork and family (albeit an untraditional family comprised of one human, a dog, sheep, pigs, a bull and a rooster). The ending leaves you feeling satisfied and happy. I think that I enjoyed the movie at least as much as my kids did. If you are a fan of the series, you will enjoy this movie.

At last!
Shaun and the gang are my absolutely favorite animated characters. Someone told me they are actually animated characters and aren't real. Baloney! I know they are real. They are real to me! By the way, I am 63-years old. Shaun is real, just like when Bill Waterston's Calvin and Hobbes are playing and there are no adults around.

Besides the wonderful animation, story, sets, music, costumes, and "dialogue" in this film, the thing that sets it apart is its soul. Although the sheep get into all sorts of mischief, they are never mean spirited about anything they do. "Sheep just want to have fun!" Once their shenanigans backfire and they are in real trouble, they all work together, the sheep, Bitzer, the rooster -- even the pigs clean up after themselves -- to fix the problem. There is real affection amongst and between all the members of the farm.

The story takes on some unexpected twists, and the "next" thing isn't always what one might expect. When Shaun hatches various plans, you know he is up to something, but it isn't obvious, and you must wait until the plan comes to fruition and find out about it as it happens. Most animated films are way too predictable in this way. Shaun is not, and that is a real credit to the folks at Aardman.

Certainly, children -- of all ages -- will love this film, but there is a lot for adults, too. Lots of parodies of other film characters and famous situations -- I want to describe some of it, but I will not spoil it.

Even Trumper the animal catcher -- and their nemesis -- isn't really all that bad. He is just power hungry, so he rules his animal "jail" with an iron hand.

Avengers? Pff. Sicario? Who cares? The Martian? Do you really want to see another Matt Damon movie? What you need to see is Shaun the Sheep. This is easily the best movie of the year. My kids love Shaun the Sheep, but even they don't appreciate all the work, detail, and actual intelligence that goes into this film. I doubt I can appreciate the work they put into this.

It's directed better than any Ridley Scott movie, and is far more enjoyable. I'm not writing this review for kids. Of course they'll like it. I'm writing this for the adults that are tired of being force fed flash-bang, fast-framed, hollywood glittered oversaturated sheep dung. This is what film was meant to be. This is what film used to be. Life's a mother****'n treat with Shaun the Sheep.

Funny, sad, sometimes a bit crude but always enjoyable children's (or is that adult-children's?) film about everyone's favorite barnyard sheep character, who ends up taking "a day off" and running around the big city instead of going through the dreadfully ordinary routine at the family barn. It's all fun and games (and laughs) until Shaun is captured by a maniacal animal catcher who appreciates his job a bit too much--but in the clink, Shaun meets some new friends, and that's where the adventure (along with a few tears, and innumerable sight gags) begins. As usual, chaos ensues...
Sunny and lightweight adventure claymation/CGI venture is executive produced by Nick Park, the creator of the Shaun character--but I suspect that a few of the toilet humor gags were courtesy of directors Richard Starzak and Mark Burton, who lower the material somewhat and remove a layer of innocence from an otherwise enjoyable script (which is why I lowered my rating by a star). Still, seeing Shaun back on the big screen is hugely enjoyable under any circumstance, and as noted above I was moved by many scenes; this is quality filmmaking under any circumstance, but not quite as inventive (or as flamboyant) as the original Nick Park-directed Wallace and Gromit features (I gave the "Were-rabbit" film an easy five stars). To me, the Shaun character has been hijacked by the filmmakers and tinkered with to be made a bit more acceptable to present day audiences, who demand a bit more of John Hughes-type ribald humor rather than the innocent G-rated material that made the original Wallace and Gromit pictures so warm and lovable.
