Having been hopelessly repressed and facing eventual certain death at the chicken farm where they are held, Rocky the rooster and Ginger the chicken decide to rebel against the evil Mr. and Ms. Tweedy, the farm's owners. Rocky and Ginger lead their fellow chickens in a great escape from the murderous farmers and their farm of doom. --Written by Cory Booth
The kids should really love the extras on the DVD of this comedy hit. The DVD-ROM features two games, plenty of coloring pages, a lively story version of the movie, and enough accoutrements (screen savers, desktop icons, and more) to turn your computer into a chicken coop. For other fans, there's a concise documentary on the making of the film and another on the history of Aardman Animation. And when you feel the need, you can always press the screaming chicken panic button to relieve stress. --Doug Thomas
- NBC's "Making Of Chicken Run"

This claymation film is a classic in many ways. It's classic in that it's put together by claymation geniuses Nick Park and Peter Lord (think Aardman Studios and "Wallace and Grommit").
This is a must-see for fans of WWII POW movies. You will see many parallels to the big-budget movie "The Great Escape" and the made-for-TV film "The Birdmen", along with hints of "Stalag 17", etc. \
The film features the somewhat dim-witted farmer, his militant/driven (commandant-like) wife- check out her boots, dogs guarding the fence perimeter, an optimistic escape leader, smuggler/scrounger rats and more.
Things go from bad to worse when the Farmer's wife, tired of earning "minuscule profits" invests in a business that will shift the farm from egg production to something much more sinister and lethal for the chicken inmates. What can the chickens do? Watch and see.
The writing is witty, the story line is fun, and character development is top-notch.
A 5-star romp that works for all ages.
This movie is hilarious. I thought the claymation would be annoying, but instead I found it charming. The British dialogue is incredibly witty, the characters are fantastic, and the storyline is simply endearing. And no, I'm not affiliated with the movie in any way or being paid to endorse it. I really did just LOVE this movie.
The pop culture references alone are brilliant. There are a whole bunch of them, but my favorites were the Star Trek references, especially the lines lifted straight from Star Trek IV. I mean, a Scottish "engineer" chicken who says things like, "It's a Klingon, Cap'n! The engines can't take it!" It's been a long time since I saw a movie so funny that I actually fell off the couch laughing, but this one delivered!
Highly recommend it, especially if you have your own little flock. Whoever made this movie spent a LOT of time around chickens - the behaviors and movements of the chickens are spot on. I spent most of the movie saying, "OMG - that's EXACTLY how chickens are!!" Seems like every flock's got a leader, a troublemaker, a complainer, and an underachiever - and after seeing this movie you'll recognize YOUR chickens immediately, lol! It's funny - all the time I was building the coop I was worried about predators getting in. Now after seeing this movie I'm a little paranoid that my girls are actually plotting to get out!
