Storyline

Ridiculed by the animal inhabitants of the peaceful Oakey Oaks community for his absurd notion that the sky is falling, the well-meaning young chicken, Chicken Little, promises to prove everyone wrong. However, one year later, there's still nothing on the horizon to justify Little's fears, when, out of the blue, the humiliated boy finally stumbles upon a real piece of evidence. Is Chicken Little and his loyal band of outcasts really on to something big this time? Written by Nick Riganas

Crazy Credits

At the very end of the closing credits, Buck and Chicken Little appear, looking out at the audience. Chicken Little says "Can we get some popcorn on the way out" and Buck points out of the screen and says "I think there's some on the floor". (Note that this scene is only in the 3D version. The 2D version ends with the Walt Disney Pictures logo.) See more »

The Sky is falling, and so is Disney
3 May 2007 | by vip_ebriegaSee all my reviews

My Take: Disney's worst effort in a long time.

Despite being such a disappointment, "Chicken Little" does live up to its name. it is indeed "little" on plot. Okay, for those who thing that's a lowlife joke, it is very much true. The movie show us Disney's loss of light. Their big motion pictures these days are simply made-for-TV or straight-to-video material compared to such phenomenal classics like "Fantasia" and "Snow White", or contemporary classics like "The Lion King" and "Mulan".

The story revolves around the title character (voiced by Zach Braff), who warns everyone that the sky is falling (a term which means "the world is ending, but in the film it literally is). Everyone thinks it's just his imagination, and thinks that he mistook an acorn as a piece of the sky. Then on, it marks the beginning of the end... for Chicken Little. Luckily, he has his own bunch of misfit friends. Abby Mallard, aka "The Ugly Duckling" (voiced by Joan Cusack), Runt of the Litter (voiced by Steve Zahn) and Fish-out-of-water (voiced by... okay he doesn't talk). When things get too hard for him and his already worried father (voiced by Gary Marshall, who is too big of an actor/director to appear in this nonsense), he tries sports, baseball to be exact, an d manages to clear his name. That is, until he sees another piece of the sky fall, and this time, "They" are coming for real.

"Wooooo!", or is it "Booooo!". For the plot is obviously muddled, and what else, they add subplots like baseball and school time blues that take so long, that it's hard to say their subplots. What is the movie all about anyway? Is it about baseball, or alien invasion? That's one thing Disney can answer for themselves.

One things for sure about Disney, leave computer animated movies to Pixar, not unless they are going to make them they way they did to "Dinosaur".

Rating: * out of 5.
