Now, where to begin?
[shaft of light and pixie dust]
How about "Once upon a time"?
[screen suddenly goes black]
How many times have you heard that to begin a story? Let's do something else.
I got it. I got it. Here we go. Here's how to open a movie.
[opening to The Lion King]
No, I don't think so. It sounds familiar, doesn't it to you?

At the very end of the closing credits, Buck and Chicken Little appear, looking out at the audience. Chicken Little says "Can we get some popcorn on the way out" and Buck points out of the screen and says "I think there's some on the floor".

My son is four years old and I decided that his gift for the second day of Christmas would be his first trip to a movie theater. We scanned the list of titles now playing and Chicken little was pretty much the only option. Narnia or Cheaper by the dozen, for instance, are for much older kids. Mine found Shreck boring (he never had the patience to watch the whole movie on DVD). The same goes for Finding Nemo and pretty much every other movie I tried to make him watch, unless it was after some TV show. I was beginning to fear that we are doomed to watch nothing but Power Rangers forever. But Chicken Little did the trick. He watched it and loved it. In fact, he had the time of his life. He laughed, he screamed, he jumped, he covered his eyes and screamed again, and then he laughed some more.I can't say anything about myself, because I was to busy taking pictures of my kid watching his first movie to pay any attention to the screen, but my 4-year old rated this movie excellent. And I think his opinion is the only one that matters, because the movie is for him, and for other kids his age, not for grown-ups or teens. So please try to see it with the eyes of a little kid, and you might enjoy it better.
