The filmmakers were nervous about showing Rocky and Ginger kissing, fearing the sight of two chickens touching beaks would look too awkward. This led to the running gag of their being interrupted every time they are about to kiss (by the sound of the pie machine, by Ginger slapping Rocky, by the gravy explosion, et cetera.). When the kiss finally comes, it is staged so that the actual contact of "lips" is hidden. See more »
Mac tells Rocky that "You sprained your anterior tendon connecting your radius to your humerus." However, tendons connect muscles to bones and the radius and humerus are both bones, so she should've said 'ligament', not 'tendon'. See more »

Originally, when Mrs. Tweedy was cutting off Edwina's head, the shadow on the wall actually depicted the axe coming downward before cutting away. It was further moved back to the current theatrical version where you see the axe going up, but not coming down. See more »
This movie is all you could hope for in summer film fare. It had action, suspense, romance and a large helping of comedy. I was predisposed to love the movie, being a great fan of Wallace and Gromit, and the movie lived up to those other award-winning works. The movie works on every level, and was fun for all ages viewing it. Even my husband, who disdains children's movies, was truly enjoying himself. Needless to say, the children loved it, despite one rather gruesome off-screen moment, but that seemed not to matter too much. All in all, I can't recommend this movie too highly, it was incredibly entertaining and well-done.
