After years of fruitless warning of his farmyard brethren of the coming Thanksgiving doom, Reggie the Turkey finds himself spared as the annual Pardoned Turkey. However, Reggie's easy life is disrupted by Jake, a fanatic turkey who drags him along with the insane idea of going back in time to make sure turkeys are not part of the first Thanksgiving. Through foolhardiness and luck, the pair manage to take an experimental time machine to do just that. Now in 1621 at the Plymouth colony, Reggie and Jake find themselves in the middle of a turkey clan's struggle for survival. In doing so, their preconceptions of the world and themselves are challenged forever in a conflict from which the world will never be the same. Written by

Ren and Stimpy creator and animator John Kricfalusi was brought on early in the production as a conceptual artist. He submitted numerous character designs and sequences, none of which were used in the film, but are available for viewing on his blog. See more »
When Jake first meets Reggie, Jake knows Reggie's name, because the Great Turkey told Jake. However, when Reggie goes back in time as the Great Turkey to when Young Jake escapes from the factory, he only mentions that Jake needed the "Pardon Turkey", and he never mentioned that the "Pardon Turkey"'s name was Reggie.

Do you know what "hypothetically" means?
No, but I can imagine a scenario where I might.

There is a scene during the credits where Jake returns holding a duck and a chicken under both of his arms. When asked by Reggie why he returned, Jake's response is, "Have you heard about the turducken?" See more »
I don't understand the hate for this movie: is was just plain fun. I don't know how this movie is offensive, probably because I'm not American, so I can't comment on that. First off all: don't look for a message in this movie. I keep reading, people saying there is a message. There is NO MESSAGE here. It's just fun. It's so bad it's good. The plot didn't make any sense and that's what was funny about it.
I'm very relieved to finally see an animated movie made just for fun and without feeling the need to add an unnecessary message or plot or emotional attachment. There was only one instance where they tried to get you emotionally involved, it didn't work but it didn't disturb me either.
Very refreshing and highly recommended during the holiday season!
