While the chickens on Mrs. Tweedy's farm dream of a better life, a clever hen named Ginger is hatching plans to fly the coop for good. The only problem is, chickens can't fly, or can they? Every escape attempt goes fowl until Rocky, a smooth-talking All-American rooster, crash lands in the coop. It's hardly poultry in motion when Rocky attempts to teach Ginger and her fine feathered friends to fly, but, with teamwork, determination, and a little bit of cluck, the fearless flock plots one last daring attempt in a spectacular bid for freedom.

Absolutely hilarious. A true stop-motion animation classic. The parodies of other movies keep coming: "The Great Escape" at the beginning, "Saturday Night Fever", "Alien/s", "Indiana Jones" (and every action movie ever made) in the middle, and "Star Trek" at the end; the latter is set up early but doesn't hit its payoff until later (which makes it all the funnier!). Great stuff for kids and adults.

Done by the same guys who also did "Wallace and Gromit".
The fairly basic premise of a farm & its animals seemed to constrain the joke possibilities.
Nicely claymation-stop-animated, but noticeably less funny to me than the "Wallace and Gromit" Collection.

A thoroughly delightful film from beginning to end. Fans of "The Great Escape" will find the opening sequence a real treat. Highly Recommended.

Great work from the same people who've done the Wallace and Gromit animated work. It's a very funny, very well paced story centred on chickens looking to escape any way they can from a farm. The story might well work better for adults than children, particularly in its sense of humor and its homage of the Great Escape. The characters are very well developed and the voice casting is ideal. The end result gives us a terrific villainess, general craziness, and good comedic timing. Even if the chickens all have teeth....
