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

I was taken aback. While watching the United State's first stereoscopic 3D movie with such a beautiful message, I was entertained, mesmerized & marveled at the creation.
The story is simple, yet unrealistic, about a group of animals who set out to the Parliament to speak out their grievances. The grievance is that they are being murdered, chased away from their natural habitats. It is so in parallel with the need of the hour in the US & the whole world. It talks about the plight of animals and why animals are going extinct. An eye-opener for some, Free Birds is truly remarkable in its style, narration and innovation.
Yes, like I said it IS little unrealistic, but who cares when it gives a valid message. The voices provided by these Hollywood celebrities are very good, the dialogs make you laugh and the direction is also good. I was little disappointed with the editing but the soundtrack made my day. A complete entertainment package, this!
BOTTOM LINE: A wonderful must-watch in the wake of boring mainstream Hollywood movies. 100% Recommended. Both for adults (the pro-PETA message) & kids (animation).
