The kids should really love the extras on the DVD of this comedy hit. The DVD-ROM features two games, plenty of coloring pages, a lively story version of the movie, and enough accoutrements (screen savers, desktop icons, and more) to turn your computer into a chicken coop. For other fans, there's a concise documentary on the making of the film and another on the history of Aardman Animation. And when you feel the need, you can always press the screaming chicken panic button to relieve stress. --Doug Thomas

I was totally impressed by the entire movie. The characters are fanastic, the plot is really funny and the stop film animation is superb.
Ginger keeps plotting to escape the Tweedy's egg farm. Mishap after mishap mirror Hogan's Heroes. There's even the coal box outside the Tweedy's where Ginger spends her time in the "cooler" after each failed escape attempt.
Rocky the 'flying' Rooster arrives to "save the day". That's as much as I'll say about the plot. EGGselent family entertainment!
The extras are pretty cool too! Truly an EGGsquisite dvd.
One of my favorite things about the film is to trying to figure out all the different parodies and allusions made to other films, televison, and pop culture. The basic plot line of the story is taken from THE GREAT ESCAPE. There are a couple of great scenes, and lines for that matter, stolen directly from STAR WARS and RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. Other films that are alluded to include STALAG 17, BRAVEHEART, SCHINDLER'S LIST, along with the television series STAR TREK.
The movie's pace is fairly quick and the characters are more substantial than the normal cardboard cut-out characters of many other animated films. All in all, CHICKEN RUN is a film that gives you a run worth your time and money.
