San Francisco Chronicle
It will be the most talked-about comedy of summer.

Philadelphia Inquirer
It's aimed at adults as much as children, with jokes that work on multiple levels, and contraptions.

Christian Science Monitor
The suspense isn't exactly breathtaking, but there are some mighty fine laughs in this clever Claymation cartoon.Family fun for all.

Entertainment Weekly
A delightful, perceptive, funny, detail-perfect fable.

Rolling Stone
It may sound silly, but Lord and Park conjure up a world of visual miracles.

Mr. Showbiz
Flock (don't walk) to the theater to see Chicken Run.

Chicago Sun-Times
Not only funny and wicked, clever and visually inventive, but . . . kind and sweet. Tender and touching.

USA Today
A little slapstick, a little action, rich characters and a whopping serving of wit. All baked to near-perfection.

New York Daily News
Funny, even thrilling.

Chicago Tribune
A bizarre, thrilling, warmly funny spoof of the WWII Steve McQueen prison camp thriller, "The Great Escape" remade for a near all-chicken cast.

New York Post
It is not only an amazing technical accomplishment, it's also the wittiest and best-voiced animated movie to come along in years.
