Now, where to begin?
[shaft of light and pixie dust]
How about "Once upon a time"?

How many times have you heard that to begin a story? Let's do something else.

2005's version of Chicken Little had me from the start with its clever poster: The End Is Near, with CL's rear facing me. I laughed at the poster a lot. Unfortunately, it wasn't as entertaining as I'd hoped it would have been. I enjoyed hearing Zach Braff and Gary Marshall perform as Chicken Little and his dad respectively, as they are both 2 of comedy's bright stars.
The film follows Chicken Little (Braff), who was made a social outcast for claiming that the sky was falling. Now, later on, Chicken happens to notice the same things he noticed the first time. What to do?
I loved the messages the film sends to our youth, and the parents of the world. A message sent to kids is this: if something's on your mind, if something's bothering you, tell someone. Don't hide it in, because the truth is always the right thing to say. What a great message to send in a children's film. The other message sent to the parents here is this: Parents, listen to your children, and stand by them no matter what. Both of these themes are expressed throughout the film, which is barely above 80 minutes, perfect for an animated children's movie.
I, being 17, felt left out when I watched this because I couldn't stay interested as much as my siblings were. It's an excellent film for kids ages 5-10, above average for 11-13, and mediocre to poor to anyone above those ages. I recommend Chicken Little to any young child and I also recommend that a parent watches it with said child, because it's a great family movie that you'll enjoy.
CHICKEN LITTLE 6/10 --spy
