The creators of Wallace & Gromit bring you an exciting and original story about a group of chickens determined to fly the coop–even if they can’t fly! It’s hardly poultry in motion when Rocky (Mel Gibson) attempts to teach Ginger and her feathered friends to fly…but, with teamwork, determination and a little bit o’ cluck, the fearless flock plots one last attempt in a spectacular bid for freedom.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Chicken Run has all the charm of Nick Park's Wallace & Gromit, and something for everybody. The voice acting is fabulous, the slapstick is brilliant, and the action sequences are spectacular.

Charming animated escape tale has some peril, scares.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that although Chicken Run is rated G, it may be too scary or hard to follow for younger or sensitive kids. A minor character is killed offscreen with an axe, and characters are in peril throughout the movie. The lead male character -- a rooster voiced by Mel Gibson -- drinks a "cocktail" out of a martini glass and acts drunk. There is some cartoonish violence; although it's often comedic and filled with falls and spills, the scenes with the chicken farmers take on a darker tone. Also, an older character -- a chicken who claims to have fought in World War II with the Royal Air Force -- calls Americans "oversexed."
