When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan, and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it's up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home.

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.
The story starts by establishing how the animals and the farmer are in a bit of ruts.
Shaun wants to mix things up and decides to head to the big city.
They have to take the farmer out of commission for a bit, and this is where the plan goes awry. The farmer ends up getting hit in the head and taken to the hospital where he suffers from amnesia.
The flock has a daring adventure in the big city trying to find and recover the farmer.
The main villain this time is an animal control officer.
The farmer uses his sheep shearing skills to develop a new haircut that catches on like wildfire.
In the end though, it is love and friendship that brings the farmer's memory and the farm animals back together.
This is a lovely story, and as a bonus there are more Hollywood movie references embedded in the tale than you can shake a lamb's tail at!
I highly recommend this movie!
Some of the humor was a little basic although on a very mild level but, kids love that type of humor.
One reviewer commented that it was not Claymation but digital I did not find that noticeable but it may be on a bigger screen however, it would probably not have been a financially viable option to use Claymation on a full length movie.
As a Brit in the US I think some American audiences may miss the short bursts of very specific British humor in places, I'm sure I missed a few that is another reason I shall watch it again however, missing too many of those specific moments may make the movie less enjoyable for some.
There are many nods to well known famous movies which whilst beyond children should amuse most adults.
I am a great fan of everything involving Nick Parks and his studios and for me he hits the mark virtually every time.
To me the sign of a well thought out movie of this type is that it can be interesting to both adults and children on separate levels by containing an adult humor that is too obscure for children to understand, I believe this technique evolved as the result of a need to work around the draconian censorship in the early Brit entertainment industry
It will be interesting for me to watch this again with my American wife and stepdaughter .
