Storyline

A chicken farmer from middle America wins a vacation for having the "Best Chicken". When Millie arrives at the new-age retreat, she meets lifestyle guru Angelica Lovecraft and her reality TV show producers. Before she knows it, she has accepted their lucrative offer and they arrive at her farm for a week of reality TV programming. While Millie is awfully excited about the show, her husband is much less enthusiastic, the producers are getting antsy and Angelica is getting dramatic. They're going to turn Millie's life, and her chicken farm, upside down. Written by napierslogs

Could have been so much better
27 July 2012 | by (Oklahoma Territory) – See all my reviews

If there was a message in this movie, it was totally lost on me. I really liked the concept of "chicken farmer goes free-range" but the implementation (bunch of coops set on a pasture) was ill-conceived and poorly executed. Just a little research (hey! google it!) on the topic of "chicken farming" could have made this movie considerably better.

Millie places a number of coops on a pasture (evidently without securing these small structures to the planet) and they get hammered by a storm. What was the point of this?

Guru follower builds a small scale model of the chicken farm and blows on it. Following day, Millie comes home to find her farm devastated by high winds. What was the point of this? If it was to allude to a cosmic connection between the guru groupie and mother nature, it fell flat. There was virtually no character development for this guy.

I can't help but feel something was lost on the cutting room floor as there is no substance to the film. Throw in a sub-plot of Millie's husband having a suspicious rendezvous with a beautiful blonde only to have it resolved with zero passion and a minimum of dialogue and I'm left wondering why I spent any time at all on this movie.
