chicken run

You can call her an action heroine–she’s a plucky chicken named Ginger who hatches doomed escape plans for her cooped up sisters. Trapped in a Nazi-like pen run by the tyrannical Miss Tweedy, the bug-eyed chickens think they’ve found their ticket to freedom when a flying rooster crash-lands into their mucky hell. While the brash and brawny cock livens things up by teaching the girls to shake a little tail feather, for the most part, he struts and preens, wheels and deals. Ultimately, it’s the girls who use their brains to blast their way to freedom. From the Claymation wizards behind Wallace and Grommit, this summer’s chick flick combines gags and inspirational lessons about leadership and teamwork for girls (and boys) with loads of dark wit and movie references for adults.
