When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it's up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home.
Tired of working on the farm, the special sheep, Shaun, takes his flock and the farmer's dog, Bitzer, into his own "temporary escape plan" after an unexpected accident. Unfortunately, in the big city, the farmer is diagnosed with amnesia, that could possibly change their normal farm life forever, and the squad sets a plan in order to regain the farmer's memory and return to the farm. But, an animal control worker named Trumper intervenes in their plan.Written by
One of the three theatrically released animated films of 2015 to be based off already existing animated media, the previous was The Spongebob Movie: Sponge out of Water (2015) and the later would be The Peanuts Movie (2015). See more »
When Bitzer is chasing the runaway trailer into the city, he stops at a long stoplight. After a considerable amount of time, the light changes to amber, then green again. The sequence for UK traffic lights is Red > Red and Amber > Green > Amber > Red. See more »
The Aardman logo has a variation: Shaun and his gang had the Aardman red words painted in the wool, as they assemble to make the "Aardman" word. Suddenly some stairs slide and Timmy appears, dressed as the Aardman star symbol, goes upstairs. See more »
The US release of the film tacks on the Lionsgate logo at the very beginning, and the opening credit screen is altered to read "Lionsgate, StudioCanal & Aardman present", whereas in the UK version, only the latter two studios are present and credited. See more »
I am a grown male and got the timings wrong to see The Interview and could not be bothered to wait for the next screening so I selected the next film starting.
I have never seen the series, so cant judge if this is a good or bad adaptation all I can say this is a truly funny film though aimed at children is funny enough to keep me entertained.
The animation is uniformly excellent and honestly kept me guessing from the start to the end whether it was CGI or stop motion, I am still not sure even after reading all the credits. Maybe I didn't read them properly because the theme tune is very catchy and bounces round the head even now.
The story is easy to follow, the characters are likable and there is no trite wince inducing dialogue, everything is mumbled by the humans and the sheep communicate in a variations of bahs. There are some cracking running gags and a smattering of fart jokes. The sheep in disguise have to be seen to believed and the viewer would be surprised what goes on with a horse.
The closing credits though long are a fun roll with a funny bit at the end.
Watch it. I bet The Interview wont be as much fun.
