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 songs featured a number of times at least starts off very much like the theme from The Great Escape (1963). See more »
The film features the eight 'named' sheep (Shaun, Timmy, Timmy's mum, Hazel, Shirley, Nuts and The Twins), however, a few minutes in as they are celebrating the success of their plan to make the farmer fall asleep in the wheelbarrow a ninth sheep (which looks like another Hazel) appears for that scene only.

Before the final credits the rooster appears with a sign saying "The End". As the credits move up the screen, the rooster jumps in order to stay visible but is finally covered up. When the credits come to an end we see the rooster again, now playing a game on his mobile phone. He notices us, turns the sign round to show the words "Go home" and walks off. The screen is blank for a moment, then a sheep appears with a vacuum cleaner. 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 »
13 February 2015 Film of Choice at The Plaza Dorchester This Aftenoon - Shaun The Sheep. I would just like to point out that I was the only adult there without a child.....or maybe I was the only child without an adult!!!!!! Nick Park and his team have done it again. This was classic Aardman animation, with our old pal Shaun. Bored with his mundane life Shaun and his sheepy friends engineer a way to have a day off but all goes drastically wrong when the farmer ends up in the big city with memory loss. It's up to the animals to save him and what follows is a madcap series of events where nobody questions sheep dressed as humans or any of the antics that occur. Completely without dialogue the story is carried along by the excellent score and gesticulations and a gaggle of bleats, grunts and other indiscriminate noises. As we know animation these days caters for all ages and with various movie references included the adults were definitely laughing at different times to the children. Watching some good old stop motion animation is a very pleasant way to pass the time.
