Rated G · 85 minutes · 2000

Animated, Comedy
When a bossy egg farmer and her henpecked husband decide to sell chicken pies, a brave hen joins forces with a cowardly rooster to help the chickens fly the coop in this 2000 clay animation by the makers of the Wallace and Gromit shorts. The finale and a scene set inside the pie-making machinery prove that the Rube Goldberg formula is infallible, and the puns—another staple of crossover animation—range from “fowl” to “poultry in motion.” Peter Lord and Nick Park directed a screenplay by Karey Kirkpatrick; with the voices of Julia Sawalha and Mel Gibson (2000). 85 min.
