Customer Review :
1.) My family saw this movie when it rolled out to the theaters,
but recently the kids wanted to rent it for a family movie night.
It is certainly worth watching more than once. It had a few moments
that I was stunned because of the adult humor, but it wasn't
anything harmful. The children didn't pick up on any of the
innuendos, but there were a ton of them. It was very very funny.
The production team couldn't have chosen a better cast for the
voice of each character. It just fit so well.
2.) Considering the movie is based on a game, it's surprisingly
great! I took my five year old son -- who is obsessed with Angry
Birds -- to see it and planned to daydream the whole time. I was
too busy laughing! The story is interesting, the characters are
cute, and the puns. Oh my, the puns! Everything from one bird
asking, "Are you sick? Bird flu? Chicken pox?" to the yoga pose,
"Downward duck" instead of "Downward dog." I have a couple of minor
issues that are personal preference.
One character says "Oh my God" a lot, in a funny way, and at funny
times. As I try to dissuade my children from saying this, it was a
battle afterward to get them to stop. Additionally, one of the puns
is "flock my life." My kids didn't pick that up, thankfully.
Overall, it's a great movie, and I purchased it as soon as it came
out. My son squealed loud enough to make the theater laugh when the
birds first used the skills they're known for. They got some
amazing actors (including the guy who did the voice for Olaf and
Peter Dinklage) and nothing seemed forced. We watch it at least
once a month.
3.) They took the bare bones of one of my favorite games and turned
it into a rich story with some meat on it! Jason Sudeikis nailed
Red's part, Bill Hader is the piggy villian we love to hate and
anniliate, and who knew Sean Penn could say so much while not
saying anything? I will watch this over and over again just for the
edgy one-liners like, "Pluck my life.", "Drop your nuts and move
your butts," and ,"I need some angry, flocking birds!"
