Why is the rating for this movie so low? I thought it was a great kids movie. I used to watch it all the time growing up. It's cute, zany, and fun to watch.

It's about this kid whose parents tell him to pick a turkey up for Thanksgiving dinner...instead, he pops up with a GIANT chicken named Henrietta...this causes ALL SORTS of trouble!
