Two Cents:

I’m not sure what happened. Maybe I wasn’t feeling well, or still recovering from several mediocre movie experiences, but I had a blast with Storks. I guess I kind of assumed this was going to be a “baby rattle” picture, lots of noise, color and movement. Something strictly for kids. I was wrong.

This was everything it was supposed to be. Bright, lively, and fun. I liked spending time with the main characters, and absolutely freaking loved the supporting players. Everything the wolf pack did had me in stitches!

Storks is loaded with hilarious observations on parenting, animal behavior, and even e-commerce. It never sits still for very long, and its few moments of sentiment don’t bog down proceedings. Hanging around just long enough to make you care, but not too long that your brain starts to lactose overload on cheesy sentiment.

Movie Prep:

This comes from the folks that produced The Lego Movie and Happy Feet. Expect a blistering pace!

Best Moment:

The wolf pack was hilarious!
