I entered to watch Storks expecting the worse. However, I got an really
The Characters are charismatic and they have good chemistry. In Fact, I LOVED Tulip and The Wolfs were hilarious.
If you want a funny and heart-warming film, then Storks is a great option for you.
It's such a shame to see how uninterested was Warner in marketing this film.
I Trust that in a few years Storks will have the recognition that it deserves, and a big fan base.
Watching this movie in the earlier parts, I could not help to feel that
the funny scenes were a little bit forced, but as the movie continues,
the funny scenes becoming more and more fluid. The funny moments became
more natural. And since the baby girl was "produced", the movie became
much more alive. I think the star of the movie was really the baby. The
animation of this baby was soooo cute and adorable that you would
really want to hug and play with the baby.
You would also be enjoying the very colorful scenes and the funny moments during the chase by the wolves. Those were some of the most enjoyable moments. But the moment that I laughed the hardest was during the scene involving penguins (and the fork). It was priceless!
I also loved that the trailer shown many times in the theaters was only showing some brief introduction about Storks and baby making machine. This helped us to be enjoying the movie without knowing there were so many plots inside this one. For parents who want to bring their children to watch this, I believe they would be able to enjoy it. For teenagers & adults, this movie would also be enjoyable to watch. However, please do not expect logic or the making sense of the story of Storks delivering babies. If you can only enjoy movie when logic is very much a great factor, then I do not think this movie is right for you. If you are looking for some fun and good laughter, then you can definitely watch this one!
By the way, this movie was produced by Warner Bros Animation Group (WAG) which also produced The Lego Movie. Hence, it was not a surprise to see there was a short funny animated Lego movie of a Chinese Kung Fu Master and a chicken before the start of the movie. I guess WAG also wanted to follow the success of such pattern used by Disney, Pixar and even Illuminati (remember those cute minions in The Secret Life of Pets ?). It did give us a nice thing to enjoy before the start of the actual movie. So when you already bought the tickets for this film, please make sure you are not late to be able to watch this short fun movie.

After watching the trailer I got excited for watching the Storks movie
and the promises where at least 'good fun'. Storks is undoubtedly funny
and keeps up with the audience attention just enough in spite of an at
par performance in pretty much all departments. Let me start by saying
that I don't this film is a 10/10 but hopefully my rating will add to
its overall rating. This is a best cartoon for family.
Stork Mountain was a place known for delivering babies and its employees are primarily storks, along with a few other birds. Their current CEO, a stork named Hunter (Kelsey Grammar), discontinued the baby delivering business, seeing more profit by having storks operate a parcel delivery service called Cornerstore.
Tulip (Katie Crown), having just turned 18 years old, is working to promote new ideas for Cornerstore, but they always backfire. Meanwhile Junior (Andy Samberg), Cornerstore's top delivery stork, is about to be promoted to boss of Cornerstore while Hunter is the boss of cornerstone now and he will be chairman of the board. Hunter demand Junior to fire Tulip but Junior cannot find the heart to fire Tulip due to her kindness and hard work, and he lies to her that she is being transferred to the mail room, instructing her to never leave her new office space.
Meanwhile, a young boy named Nate Gardner (Anton Starkman) feels lonely because his parents, Henry (Ty Burrell) and Sarah (Jennifer Aniston), are too busy to spend time with him and he want to have another brother. Nate Gardner found ad about old stork deliver baby and he writes a letter asking for a baby brother with ninja skills and sends it to Cornerstore. The letter makes its way to Tulip, who reluctantly leaves the mail room to put the letter in a slot just outside the room despite Junior's attempt to stop her, injury his wing in the process. To their surprise, a baby girl is created inside a metal container, whom they later name Diamond Destiny.
Junior agrees to secretly help deliver Diamond Destiny. As Junior's wing is broken, they use Tulip's flying machine for transportation. However, they crash into a frozen tundra and they met group of wolfs who leaders named Alpha (Keegan-Michael Key) and Beta (Jordan Peele). The two manage to save Diamond Destiny, whom the wolves have fallen in love with baby. At last, Junior, Tulip and baby diamond escape from group of wolfs.
Back at Cornerstore, a pigeon employee named Toady (Stephen Kramer Glickman) learns of Diamond Destiny's existence. Toady told Hunter about the baby then he promises to give Toady Junior's position as the boss as they scramble the coordinates Junior and Tulip have been following to mislead them to a different location. Junior is captured and tied up by Hunter and his cronies at the false location and they kidnap Diamond Destiny. While Tulip follow the Jasper to her lost family. However, Tulip comes to rescue Junior without having met her family and the two resend themselves back to Cornerstore. After fighting an army of penguins, Junior and Tulip are chased into the abandoned baby making room and start up the machine as a distraction. As thousands of babies are being made, Hunter angrily confronts Junior and Tulip with a large robotic machine, but Junior refuses to surrender Diamond Destiny with Hunter's re-offered promotion. With the infant's playfulness, Junior and Tulip are able to cause the machine along with Hunter to fall off the cliff elevating the collapsing Cornerstore.
Junior rallies the storks, as well as the other birds, to help deliver the babies to the families who wanted them including the Gardners, and Nate accepts having a sister when he realizes that she has the ninja skills he asked for in the letter. The storks, former employees of Cornerstore, and the wolf pack reunite Tulip with her expanded family, and she and Junior continue their job of delivering babies as co-bosses of Stork Mountain.
I admit that while it's not one of my favorite animated movies of the
year, it's still definitely something I would recommend. I admit that
it does start a bit slow. It really gets better when the character
Tulip is introduced. She is the heart of this movie and by far the most
entertaining part. Thank you for featuring her so much. Almost
everything she says is funny. I guess I just have a soft spot for genki
girls. Pinkie Pie is the one who comes to mind most at any time. She
even has red (pink?) hair like her. The best parts are probably her
interacting with her personas.
I admit that the story makes little sense. How exactly are babies brought into this world now? We briefly get to see the process of how a baby is made. I love how big and epic this movie gets. Yes, it's technically short, but it still gives you everything you would want in a good movie. They have a lot of great details and it leads up to an exciting climax. As a huge fan of "The Lego Movie", you have to watch the great short that precedes this. If only "Looney Tunes" did stuff like that nowadays. It's great to see a good movie based on an original concept too. ***

This movie was very hard to watch. The hectic pace and scatter-brained delivery of the "Tulip" character left both my wife and I occasionally wandering the online world looking for relief. The story line was cute, but all the jabber-jabber-jabber behavior. Frankly, speaking most especially of Tulip, any child of mine that acted with such disrespect toward others. We did like the character of Jasper played by Danny Trejo and liked the revenge of the small angry-birds, but the show just didn't rank with us. Lastly, we're supportive of homosexuals, but delivering a child via stork to lesbians? Storks deliver adopted children? There comes a point where representation is no longer valuable, and that scene felt more like indoctrinating children than including same-sex affection into mainstream presentation. But, I suppose that's the world we live in --- one where political inclusiveness appears more important than actually making a good story (or, at least, one in which the inclusion of the scene has anything to do with the movie at all).
This film tells the story of a delivery company run by storks. They
stopped delivering babies for many years, until one incompetent
employee broke the rules and created a baby for delivery.
There are many reasons to like "Storks". The animation is super cute, and the story is very sweet. Most people would connect with babies, making this film an easy success. The wolves are funny too. However the broken heart has gone just one step too far as it gets too repetitive and non functional like the other formation of the wolves. I also like the literal downfall of the boss. Adults can relate to that too. It is rare to see a film that can be enjoyed by all ages. I liked it.
Ooh where to begin.
After watching the trailer I got excited for watching the Storks movie and the promises where at least 'good fun'. And now after watching the movie I can just say, what an awesome roller-coaster ride of fun. Laughing throughout the whole movie, without the movie getting boring or losing any real tempo.
From great and funny animations, characters, to the facial expressions of the characters and just how the whole movie looks in terms of style. The (English) voice overs that just match perfectly with the characters and not one boring character in the movie.
Through the years there have been some really good and funny animations, but I don't think I have laughed so much through a whole animation movie since 'Tangled'. And there have been some really awesome animations the last few years.
For me Storks has been the sleeper comedy animation hit of the year.
So If you want a good laugh and/or the trailer makes you already excited, go watch it with an open mind and let the movie take you on a ride of fun.

I admit this movie is not on my watch list.
In the beginning of this movie I can't stop my mind to think why they create this world-a world the baby is delivered by storks.
This is no sense and totally different world with the real world.
Why? In the end of movie I think it give me the reason.
In the final scene, the storks start to deliver baby again we can see so many family receive a baby include Same-sex marriage couple.
In such a Utopian world, we don't need a man and woman to get a baby. We just write a letter to storks.
I see so many good idea in this movie.
Baby is most wonderful thing in the world no one want hurt baby > Everyone told you that you want to be boss, but most important is what do you want to do after be a boss
The funny scene in this movie make me laugh loudly
If you want a movie that is entertaining, funny, action-packed with
twists and turns throughout - then this movie is for you! The animation
quality is as good as any out there.
The voice actors are sensational. Kelsey Grammar and Andy Samberg and their back and forth bantering is totally brilliant and any of us involved in business can understand the dynamic and completely understand the humour.
It is one of those movies that you can watch again and again and never get bored.
Kids love it and there is plenty of content to keep adults laughing.
This movie is a terrific and I can't understand how anyone could not thoroughly enjoy this movie!
Storks wasn't specifically on my watch list. I had seen ads here and
there, but it seemed to get overshadowed with the release of other
movies. When i got the chance to watch it on a flight, i took it.
Mostly because there was nothing else to watch. I ended up laughing out
loud a couple of times and being charmed by some of the characters.
The movie was cute and a little awkward at times, and had a fun and not too serious premise. The awkwardness is especially what drew me in. This movie might not be for everyone, the comedy might be a bit too obvious and cringy, and kids might not understand the humor at times. I personally don't think those are bad things, since i enjoy that type of humor. The voice acting was okay. I mean Andy Samberg was Andy Samberg and Ty Burell was Ty Burell. I enjoy both actors very much, but it made it hard for me to get into their characters. Stephen Kramer Glickman, Kelsey Grammar and Danny Trejo were outstanding in their performance.
Overall this movie was a fun ride, and took me by surprise. I got a little lost in the storytelling sometimes, and wasn't sure what 'message' they were trying to convey. But overall it was enjoyable and cute, and not every movie needs a 'message'. I'm not sure if every kid will enjoy this movie, but i think adults who like awkward humor and great animation (I forgot to mention that) will enjoy this movie. This movie is definitely underrated and got drowned out by other (hyped) animated movies that got released around the same time.
