Storyline

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 Gusde

I was late for The Interview
6 February 2015 | by Braindead09See all my reviews

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.
