Storyline

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 Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Good attempt for the most part
4 November 2013 | by (Islamabad) – See all my reviews

I recently pre-ordered this movie on DVD after seeing a few clips and songs on Youtube, because it looked promising. Let me start on a positive note in this review. The songs were good, the texture of the characters was good, and the settings were well-animated. The environmental message and family moments were especially good.

The only things I didn't like about this movie were the two main characters Reggie and Jake, as they got irritating after a couple minutes; a couple instances of editing didn't make sense or work well; the goblets were unnecessary and also somewhat irritating; and the rooster was just plain irritating. Just lifted from Lion King, which in itself was a direct rip-off from the Japanese Simba anime.

Despite the cons, I found this to be a good movie. Though it was slightly derivative, it was done in a way that worked well. Definitely worth a watch with the kids, though adults may wish to avoid.
