Plot Outline:

Greedy farm owner Mrs. Tweedy runs her 1950s Yorkshire poultry ranch like a P.O.W. camp, pushing the resident chickens ever closer to unrest. Head chicken Ginger plots to free the birds from the farm, which will soon morph into a chicken-pot-pie factory. But after several failed attempts, she asks a dashing rooster for help.

Chicken Run is a clever homage to prison escape films, like The Great Escape and Stalag 17. The animation is nostalgic and top notch and the visual jokes are what makes the film the most fun.

On par with the 'Wallace and Gromit' films. It's pretty clever and has good animation.

Chicken Run is a funny, smart adventure. I love the animation and the clever subtleties in the story. Great for kids and grownups.

Not just a "Chick" movie

In the farming community of England there is a chicken farm which resembles, and is run like a POW camp by the "Tweedys" (voiced by Miranda Richardson and Tony Haygarth). "Mrs. Tweedy" (Richardson) pays close attention to the egg output, then picks the least productive hen for dinner.

The "Tweedys", especially "Mrs. Tweedy", have left the hens and roosters scared for their lives (literally), and a young hen named "Ginger" (voiced by Julia Sawalha) takes it upon herself to come up with a plan to get them out of there when a flying American rooster named "Rocky" (voiced by Mel Gibson) crashes into the chicken coup after falling from a rough flight. "Ginger" then gets the idea to have "Rocky", who apparently injured a wing in the crash landing, teach herself and the rest of the chickens ...
