Storyline

Ridiculed by the animal inhabitants of the peaceful Oakey Oaks community for his absurd notion that the sky is falling, the well-meaning young chicken, Chicken Little, promises to prove everyone wrong. However, one year later, there's still nothing on the horizon to justify Little's fears, when, out of the blue, the humiliated boy finally stumbles upon a real piece of evidence. Is Chicken Little and his loyal band of outcasts really on to something big this time? Written by Nick Riganas

This movie is all compromise, no soul
7 November 2005 | by sablemanSee all my reviews

What were they thinking? How can a Disney animated movie called "Chicken Little" be dominated by frightening alien attack scenes where established characters are vaporized? How can you make a Disney animated moved called "Chicken Little" dominated by jokes which either require the ability to read or a knowledge of 70s-era pop culture? How can you make a Disney animated movie called "Chicken Little" and have the central theme be "closure?" For those who haven't seen it, this last question is not a figurative one. The word "closure" is literally used as a central theme, revolving around the central character's inability to get over an incident in his past and the impact it had on his relationship with his dad. Give me a break. My quite-intelligent 10-year-old, who liked the movie's action and slapstick, had no idea what they were talking about. I wouldn't even bother bringing a sub-9 year old.

As for the 3-D version, there wasn't much point. This movie wasn't built around 3-D effects.

Don't get me wrong. I love the sophistication and frantic pace of recent animated films like The Incredibles or this director's own The Emperor's New Groove. This one doesn't even come close.
