Escape or die frying.
While the chickens on evil Mrs. Tweedy's farm dream of a better life, a clever hen named ginger is hatching plans to fly the coop, for good. The only problem is, chickens can't fly or can they? Every escape attempt goes fowl until rocky, a smooth talking all-american rooster, crash-lands into the coop.

Editor's Note
Facing imminent death while laying eggs at Tweedy's English farm, a group of chickens, led by the determined Ginger (Julia Sawahla, BBC-TV's ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS), plan to escape their prisonlike coop. The situation goes from bad to worse when the sinister Mrs. Tweedy (Miranda Richardson) decides to stop selling eggs and use the hens as the main ingredient in chicken pot pies. However, some hope literally falls from the sky in the form of Rocky (Mel Gibson), an American rooster who promises to teach the chickens how to fly. As the hens begin their struggle to get airborne, the monstrous pie-making machine arrives, giving the chickens precious little time to make their great escape.

Aardman Studios' first full-length feature film is a stunning showcase of stop-motion animation. Utilizing the unique Plasticine designs of the acclaimed WALLACE & GROMIT and CREATURE COMFORT shorts, CHICKEN RUN features vibrant visuals and colorful characters that are immediately endearing. (The naive and constantly knitting Babs, voiced by Jane Horrocks, is particularly hilarious.) With its clever writing, witty film references, and pitch-perfect combination of comedy, drama, and romance, CHICKEN RUN is one of those rare movies that genuinely appeals to viewers of every age.

...a comedy to cluck about. The folks who created Wallace & Gromit have turned out a work of inspired pluck with delicious layers for just about every age group... a witty, action-packed story as well as a fascinating blend of realistic, gritty images and outlandish but believable clay animated characters... - Peter Stack 9 of 10
...just trying to describe Chicken Run can put one into the state of euphoric silliness... This movie's cornucopia of humorous riffs and stunts never fails to amuse or enthrall... - Michael Sragow
