Storks review – unexpectedly charming

This avian online delivery animation is one for the whole family

This unexpectedly charming animation bursts out of the screen with an aesthetic that is a sugar rush of cuteness. This probably would be quite off-putting, were it not for the sharp humour that elevates it from easily digestible kiddy fodder to something that offers sustenance to parents as well.

The film, written and directed by Nicholas Stoller (Bad Neighbours, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Muppets), imagines a world in which storks have sidelined their original baby delivery services in favour of a highly lucrative online shopping organisation. Junior (Andy Samberg) is the company’s high-achieving bird and is hotly tipped to take over when the boss retires. But he finds his ambitions thwarted by Orphan Tulip (Katie Crown), an undelivered human baby, now an adult, who is something of a glitch in the smooth-running stork business model. Tulip inadvertently creates a baby,

Movie Review – Storks (2016)

Storks, 2016.

Directed by Nicholas Stoller, Doug Sweetland

Featuring the voice talents of Andy Samberg, Katie Crown, Kelsey Grammer, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Jennifer Aniston, Ty Burrell, Danny Trejo and Stephen Kramer Glickman.

Synopsis:

Storks have moved on from delivering babies to packages. But when an order for a baby appears, the best delivery stork must scramble to fix the error by delivering the baby.

There’s a reason the late Chuck Jones-the mastermind behind Looney Tunes – is remembered as maybe the great of animation; Jones had a fundamental understanding of what one could do with medium, the world building, animation as a facility to play with physics. Not to go so far as to compare Storks, the latest from Warner Bros. Animation – whose only film prior was 2014’s delightful The Lego Movie – to that of Jones’ output, but it certainly takes notes. It seems infatuated with the brazen, brash

‘Storks’ review: “Enjoyable though unmemorable”

Storks review: Nicholas Stoller injects some comedy into his first animated movie which is largely enjoyable, but instantly forgettable.

Storks review by Paul Heath.

Storks deliver babies. Everyone knows that. Well, they used to exclaims Nicholas Stoller‘s (Bad Neighbours) first foray into animation.

Storks, from Wag – that’s Warner Bros. Animation, revolves around an Internet shopping destination where all of the parcels are delivered by – yes you’ve guessing it – storks. They’ve long been done with those pesky babies now that Kelsey Grammar‘s Hunter is in charge. Hunter’s reign at the top is set to come to an end and Junior (Adam Samberg) looks like the man to take over – he has just one task – to fire human worker Tulip (Katie Crown) who keeps messing things up and forcing the sales numbers to nose-dive. Tulip was the last baby ever to be scheduled for delivery by the storks,

Storks review

Mark Harrison Published Date Friday, October 14, 2016 - 05:57

Going by the trailers alone, Storks might look like a bit of an anachronism in 2016, taking its comedic kick start from the folkloric image of the white stork delivering babies to expectant parents that was popularised by Hans Christian Anderson and latterly in Disney's Dumbo. Happily, writer and co-director Nicholas Stoller has thought this through more than we have.

In Warner Animation Group's second feature, storks delivered infants from their baby factory on Stork Mountain in the past, but a pioneering boss has changed all of that, “because there are lots of other ways to get a baby.” Now the mountain is crowned with a great big warehouse from which Amazon-a-like online retailer Cornerstore.com dispatches electrical goods and other doo-dads so that storks don't have to deal with the hassle of carrying newborns any more.

Film Review: Funny, Spontaneous ‘Storks’ Really Delivers

Chicago – I’ve waited all week to write that headline, and I will be joining the 100,000 other similar headlines out there. Hey-ooh! “Storks” is a lot of fun, without the dire need for any “message” or heavy handedness that is too familiar in the current animation environment. It’s just funny.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Much of the credit has to go to writer/co-director Nicholas Stoller (“Get Him to the Greek”), doing his first animated film. He has a light touch with comedy, pressing the accelerator when he needs to, but also getting laughs from wacky dialogue and strange asides. Staying close to the roots of the story (storks no longer deliver babies, but packages), and employing a great voice cast, combined for “Storks” to join “Sausage Factory” as the funniest full-length cartoon of the year.

The old days of storks delivering babies has gone the way of the rotary phone. The new delivery model is packages,

'Storks' Review: Andy Samberg Toon Delivers Babies, Animated Anarchy

'Storks' Review: Andy Samberg Toon Delivers Babies, Animated Anarchy
You know the drill: An upcoming animated movie releases a trailer, filled with pop songs (maybe its a current hit; maybe it's a Smash Mouth song), wacky animals and recognizable celebrity voices. It drops a few kid-friendly snarky lines here and there – the dog/cat/emu that just skid face-first into a door? It, like, meant to do that! Then it's all over but the first-weekend grosses. Occasionally, a sociological Mickey gets slipped into these filmic equivalents of fizzy drinks; seriously, who'd have thought that Zootopia would double as one

Storks – Review

Storks takes the old myth of storks delivering babies as a starting point for an animated action/adventure comedy, where the storks have gone corporate and gotten out of the baby delivery business. Now, storks deliver merchandise for Cornerstore.com, a giant Amazon-like internet retailer, because now there are so many options if you want a baby. Or at least they thought they were out of the baby business, until a little boy uses an old form to place an order for a baby brother- an order that would never have been filled except for a glitch in the system that activates the long-shuttered Baby Factory.

A baby is in no way part of the company’s new business model, so an ambitious, efficient stork named Junior (Andy Samberg), who is in line to become the next CEO, has to deal with the problem – and quickly, before his boss Hunter

‘Storks’: How Looney Tunes Animation Meets the Coen Brothers’ ‘Raising Arizona’

‘Storks’: How Looney Tunes Animation Meets the Coen Brothers’ ‘Raising Arizona’
Storks,” the brainchild of the new Warner Animation Group screenwriting “think tank,” stretches the Looney Tunes ethos for CG in terms of both comedy and animation style.

First-time animation director Nicholas Stoller (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”), who wrote the script, teamed up with another directorial newbie, former Pixar animator Doug Sweetland (the “Presto” short), and they paid tribute to the Coen brothers’ “Raising Arizona,” a live-action Looney Tune of sorts.

Storks now deliver packages instead of babies for retail giant, Cornerstore.com, run by the greedy Hunter (Kelsey Grammer). That is, until Junior (Andy Stamberg) and human sidekick Tulip (Katie Crown) inadvertently unleash the long-dormant Baby Machine. They’re forced to deliver an adorable girl to her family, while warding off a Wolf Pack that’s also fallen in love with the baby.

But without its own in-house animation team, Warner Bros. turned to Sony Pictures Imageworks (now headquartered in Vancouver

The Weekend Warrior 9/23/16: The Magnificent Seven, Storks

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

This Past Weekend:

Yikes. What a terrible weekend we just had, not only for the new movies released but also for the Weekend Warrior’s predictions. Clint Eastwood and Tom HanksSully won its second weekend in a row with just under $22 million, but as far as the new movies, neither Lionsgate’s Blair Witch nor Universal’s Bridget Jones’s Baby did very well, putting the last nail in the coffin (hopefully) for sequels/remakes trying to play upon nostalgia that just isn’t there. (Good luck to the Rings movie opening next month!) Blair Witch ended up with $9.6 million to take second place and both Bridget Jones’s Baby and Oliver Stone’s Snowden ended up with around $8 million, so

Storks Review

Storks is a cinematic representation of the most patience-chewing children’s toy; something that blares music, flashes obnoxious lights, rings bells, toots whistles – a real demon plaything. So much should work, yet almost every scene lays flatter than a stinky squished baby diaper. Jokes land clumsily, pacing is completely askew and what’s up with the half-assed birds-and-the-bees story that mixes delivery storks and actual human reproduction (I think)? If your child hasn’t asked where babies come from yet, you better be ready for the most awkward car ride home ever after this parental nightmare of a child’s film.

Andy Samberg stars as Junior, a soon-to-be promoted deliver stork working for Cornerstore.com. Storks were once known for delivering babies based on mailed letters from hopeful parents, but then big-boss Hunter (Kelsey Grammer) realizes the profit margins are found in parcel delivery, so the baby division is shut down.

‘Storks’ Review: Nicholas Stoller’s Animated Comedy Is a Dumb Movie In Search of a Sweet Idea

‘Storks’ Review: Nicholas Stoller’s Animated Comedy Is a Dumb Movie In Search of a Sweet Idea
There’s a fleeting moment at the end of “Storks” rich with warm possibilities. One after another, would-be parents from all walks of life — gay, straight, single and many different skin colors — embrace their new infants, celebrating the universality of family bonds in a way that’s uniquely contemporary for a major studio release of this sort. The story leading up to it, however, falls short of such foolproof logic. “Storks” takes place in a world eerily devoid of sex, in which parenthood has been corporatized and then abandoned by a factory run by talking birds whose priorities have shifted to delivering non-human goods. Co-directed by Doug Sweetland and Nicholas Stoller (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) from Stoller’s screenplay, it doesn’t have the brains to wrestle with the outrageous conceit, nor the inspired humor to distract from the rampant absurdity. It’s a dumb movie in search of a sweet idea.

Sneak Peek at Fall’s Big-Budget Animated Oscar Pack

Sneak Peek at Fall’s Big-Budget Animated Oscar Pack
For the studios, 2016 has mostly been about the year of the animal, highlighted by Disney’s billion-dollar “Zootopia” and Pixar’s “Finding Dory” (the new all-time animation box office leader).

However, the year culminates with another potentially strong Disney Oscar contender, “Moana” (November 23), along with two musicals: Illumination’s “Sing” (December 21), which played to cheering crowds this week at the Toronto Film Festival, and DreamWorks’ “Trolls” (Nov. 4). Warner Bros., meanwhile, offers the buddy comedy, “Storks” (September 23), which has attracted good world of mouth for its humor.

Disney explores new territory with the Polynesian-themed “Moana,” the first foray into CG for directors John Musker and Ron Clements (“The Princess and the Frog,” “Aladdin,” “The Little Mermaid”), who push the legacy in a new direction with contemporary appeal.

The free-spirited, teenage Moana (Auli’i Cravalho) possesses strong navigational skills and is determined to sail out on a dangerous mission to save her island and eradicate its isolation.
