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.
Wallace takes a break from trying to decide on a holiday destination only to find he has no cheese for his crackers. The solution to both problems is a trip to the moon, with dog Gromit, because everybody knows the moon's made of cheese.
Shaun is a sheep who doesn't follow the flock - in fact, he leads them into all sorts of scrapes and scraps, turning peace in the valley into mayhem in the meadow. Shaun and his pals run ... See full summary »
Mr. Link recruits explorer Sir Lionel Frost to help find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, this trio of explorers travel the world to help their new friend.
An asteroid collides with the prehistoric Earth, causing the extinction of the planet's dinosaurs, but sparing a tribe of cavemen living near the impact site. Finding a roughly spherical chunk of the asteroid that is too hot to touch, the cavemen begin to kick it around and invent the game of football. Many years later during the Stone Age, a young caveman named Dug (Eddie Redmayne) lives in the village with the chief Bobnar (Timothy Spall) and many other cavemen such as Asbo, (Johnny Vegas), Gravelle (Gina Yashere), Treebor (Richard Ayoade), Magma (Selina Griffiths), Barry (Mark Williams), Grubup (Richard Webber), Thongo (Simon Greenall) and Eemak (Simon Greenall). One day, Dug suggests to Bobnar that they should try hunting woolly mammoths instead of rabbits, but Bobnar brushes him off..

As Dug falls down the stadium seating, Hognob looks at his wrist to tell time even though he isn't wearing a wrist watch. That may seem like a goof, especially considering that wrist watches weren't invented yet at the time the movie takes place, but that's the point of the joke. It's to imply that Hognob is realizing that Dug is taking an awfully long time to fall to the bottom of the stadium. See more »
Nearly there, Hognob. Nearly there, just a bit further. Try a little bit harder. We can do it.

A fun little family flick
Early Man is the perfect delight to go and see if you have children under the age of ten. Ten and over can go see Black Panther this coming weekend.
As for Early Man, it's a delight. It has fun humor, a great cast, fun action sequences, and an overall great heartfelt message that every viewer can love, no matter the age.
Some of the issues I have with Early Man is the impossible nature of comparing it to every other Aardman film. It just is not as good as The Shaun The Sheep movie.
With my one tiny issue aside, Early Man is a very fun family film that will unfortunately not do leaps and bounds at the box office due to Black Panther.
I would have to give Early Man a B+ or on an Imdb scale, a 7/10.
