After years of fruitless warning of his farmyard brethren of the coming Thanksgiving doom, Reggie the Turkey finds himself spared as the annual Pardoned Turkey. However, Reggie's easy life is disrupted by Jake, a fanatic turkey who drags him along with the insane idea of going back in time to make sure turkeys are not part of the first Thanksgiving. Through foolhardiness and luck, the pair manage to take an experimental time machine to do just that. Now in 1621 at the Plymouth colony, Reggie and Jake find themselves in the middle of a turkey clan's struggle for survival. In doing so, their preconceptions of the world and themselves are challenged forever in a conflict from which the world will never be the same.Written by

This is the first film to use the updated Relativity Media logo, used in all current releases afterwards. See more »
When Jake first meets Reggie, Jake knows Reggie's name, because the Great Turkey told Jake. However, when Reggie goes back in time as the Great Turkey to when Young Jake escapes from the factory, he only mentions that Jake needed the "Pardon Turkey", and he never mentioned that the "Pardon Turkey"'s name was Reggie.

Our world is made of corn.
[has corn in hand]
[waves hand at sun]
That's an awesome theory, but I think they actually call that the Sun.

Some folks who are either not getting this or are taking it way too seriously.
"We have a Turkey situation"
"How should we address it?"
"With cranberry sauce." (HA, HA, HA,HA)
This was just a fun, silly movie -- perfect for a family outing. It has no pretensions to be anything more than just a goofy, romp through "history". No, it doesn't contain any riotously funny scenes. No, it doesn't contain any hidden agenda. No it doesn't contain a subtext of humor aimed at the parents/adults in the audience. And no, it is not a thinly veiled attempt by Hollywood to promote a "Vegan" agenda. (Seriously?!?)
It's not great art. It doesn't even really try to manipulate the heart strings.
It reminded me a lot of "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" and even referenced it at one point.
It's just exactly that kind of a (again) fun, silly little movie.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Just take the kids and enjoy it.
