Larry the Cable Guy,
Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent - Madagascar style.
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.

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 »
Well, first of all I will agree with the majority of reviews - the movie isn't brilliant or groundbreaking. It doesn't have strong sides or advantages. It's plot is recycled. But... at least it doesn't have that much disadvantages either.
Sure, some comical cliché is present, but overall the script is rather... balanced. Some moments are sillier than others, but movie is watchable without cringes and twitches. There are no moments that reek of clinical mental illness during writing, or unnecessary exaggerations. Cute is cute, cheesy is cheesy, fun is fun.
Compared to other two unorthodox recent movies, Despicable Me 2 and Meatballs 2, this movie is still better because it has less bad than good. And that's better, than less good than bad. It doesn't have imbecilic animation, it doesn't have intendedly deranged characters(and not in direct sense).
So I give this 5. It doesn't deserve more by any means. But it doesn't revolt so much for less.
