Excellent family film, 26 April 2005
9/10

I bought this film almost ten years ago and each of my children (14, 12 and 5 years old) has enjoyed multiple viewings of it. I include myself as a fan. The story is about a rooster who loses his ability to crow, partly because of the villainous owl, the Grand Duke, and his dastardly plans. The characters are interesting and well developed. The plot has plenty of suspense and villains for young children (and their parents); romance, heroes worth cheering, and a clear story line. The songs are catchy, the singing excellent, and appropriate for the story. Basing the main character, Chanticleer, on Elvis is quite appropriate and adds a bit of humor for adults. This film is equal in quality to Don Bluth's Thumbelina.
