Second time of seeing ...By Am from Liverpool, England , 10 Dec 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Second time of seeing this film and it's just as good as i remembered, hired it for my boyfriend to see and he loved it to.Great entertainment for all the family. I think the people who have written bad reviews of this animation/film musn't have a sense of humour as it is very witty, give it a go im sure you won't be dissapointed.

Who's chicken?By a customer , 12 Oct 2012Kids loved it and found it fun. Good fun and likeable but not necessarily something to go mad about.
Good voice overs with Jane Horrocks and special guess appearance from Mel Gibson
Liked it and loved it more 2nd timeBy a customer from Birmingham , 18 Jul 2010I'd seen the trailers a lot when it was coming out in the cinemas, but never got around to watching it even though I'd also heard good things about it. Watched it at home and still didn't feel too much about it. For want of returning the disc, I pushed it into the DVD player once more and reclaimed even more from the film. Suffice to say, it's a lot to take in the first time and I missed a lot - I would end up glazing over. Better to give it some time and watch it again. An excellent disc to have at home to reclaim even more details and nuances with each successive viewing.
Incredible production, so just sit back and enjoy.
A classic in years to come.
A family treatBy a customer from Dorset , 03 Jun 2010Although I have seen this film before some time ago I still enjoyed it as much as the first time.
I love the 'in' jokes about the war films and it's very cleverly written. The animation is superb with such detail. It's hard to believe how long it took to make the film; such dedication and patience.
The characters are all so different and I had a real soft spot for Ginger. I was really willing them to fly over the fence before something
'orrible happened to them!
Great film for all ages.
Prison escape - with chickens..By illume (31 reviews) from London , 22 Feb 2009I defy you not to laugh. Yes, of course its silly - but loads of great visual gags.
And it sucks you into its world. There's a delicious moment when it bursts its own balloon..
okBy a customer from scotland , 19 Dec 2008There was a massive hype when this came out - i was expecting it to be hilarious.
In the end I found it mildly humourous in places .
I got it for my 4yr old fun who was transfixed but not particarly hysterical.
A lot of adult humour and pointless bits - which is why I rated it a 3*
Still worth watching on a wet afternoon with kids - just wouldnt buy it or watch it again and again like some .
