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

This is the first film to use the updated Relativity Media logo, used in all current releases afterwards. See more »
In one scene the villagers toss dynamite at the turkeys. Dynamite was invented in 1867, 250 years in the future. See more »
Well, I guess this is good-bye.
No, Reggie. Good-byes are just hellos, carried across the wind until our paths... intersect once again.

Watchable is the word that springs to mind for 'Free Birds'. This movie does enough to be mildly entertaining but contains few moments that will make you laugh, especially considering that this is supposed to be an animated 'comedy'.
The film is silly and perhaps the filmmakers were expecting to get laughs out of the plot alone, but this isn't the case. I can see younger viewers enjoying this film, obviously kids are the primary target audience, but even so I doubt they would choose this over the many other, vastly superior, animated comedies.
'Free Birds' is a sufficiently entertaining animated film, but it lacks the laughs to consider it a comedy success.
