Product Description

Chicken Run ~ Chicken Run

Special Features

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Chicken FUN! Aug. 16 2000
By John DiBello - Published on Amazon.com
"Chicken Run" (the latest from Aardman Studios, the makers of the 'Wallace and Gromit' films) is simply the most delightful, visually amazing, and FUN animated movie since Disney's "The Lion King." Other studios (notably Warner Brothers) have tried to take a bite out of Disney's pie-share of the kid-movie market, but Aardman and Dreamworks have done it best in this charming, hilarious, and edge-of-your-seat thrilling animated fantasy about a group of hens trying to break out of a chicken farm. Running the farm with an evil eye and an iron ax are the villainous Mrs. Tweedie and her henpecked (literally) husband, who's sure those chickens are plotting escape. The voices are perfect, from Julia Sawalha and Joan Horrocks from "Absolutely Fabulous" as chickens to Mel Gibson as the "flying" rooster Rocky. I want to recommend that every parent take their kids to see this one: unlike many other recent cartoons, this one is completely suitable for all but the very youngest children (there's some tense moments in a chase at the end, and a little threatening to the chickens with an ax), but even better, this will delight and amuse the adults with its clever animation, perfect voice-casting, witty visual allusions to famous movies like "The Great Escape," "The Bridge over the River Kwai," and "Raiders of the Lost Ark," and Indiana Jones-type thrills that range from a chase inside an automatic chicken pie-making machine to a dramatic and climatic escape that is reminiscent of, but even improves on, the high-energy chase sequences of Aardman's "Wallace and Gromit" films. The moral lessons (you can succeed better with teamwork; stand by your friends) are pointed but gentle, without hitting kids over the head. I can't recommend this one highly enough, folks, whatever age you are. And if you head out of the theater and go eat a chicken pot pie, you have a much, much, harder heart than mine!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hogan's Heroes Meets The Great Escape !! Nov. 27 2000
By Sam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Poultry in motion ! What a great movie, there's more entertainment in the opening credits than most movies have in total.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An EGG-cellent EGG-scape Animation Nov. 16 2000
By Craig Bonney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Well, what an absolute joy and surprise this movie turned out to be. I was dumb-founded from start to finish as to how the animators actually created this magical stop-motion picture. In the past three days I have watched this disc over and over again, not tiring of it at all. The story (ala "Stalag 17" and "The Great Escape") is simple yet effective. A group of English hens constantly plot and scheme to escape from their chicken farm, run by the tyrannical Mrs Tweedy (the voice of Miranda Richardson), before they are turned into chicken pies. Their only hope comes in the shape of a cocky, plucky American rooster named Rocky Roads (Mel Gibson in his best performance to date). "Chicken Run" is filled with great adult one-liners and jokes and is packed with every war/escape movie cliche know to this genre. It will also appeal to the little ones. The disc is great value. The DTS soundtrack is pretty awesome and really kicks into power when the chicken pie oven blasts into action....WOW! The video transfer is crystal clear, which adds an extra dimension to the clay models. The extras are fun also. The "Chicken Panic" button is very cute, "The Making Of" docos (there are two) are VERY interesting and informative, and there is great information about the movie hidden throughout the menus....you have to find them! The highlight of the disc is the voice of Jane Horrocks ("Little Voice" and Bubble from "Ab Fab") who steals the show as Babs the dumb hen! She's hysterical. Make sure you buy this disc for your DVD library. You won't be disappointed! If this movie doesn't win an Oscar at next year's Academy Awards....I'll give up poultry for life!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best films of 2000. Dec 22 2000
By tvtv3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
CHICKEN RUN is a great movie. It is one of the best movies of 2000. It is a film that contains a lot of humor for both children and adults. The movie is made by the people responsible for WALLACE AND GROMIT and if you enjoy those films, you will probably enjoy CHICKEN RUN.
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.
