So, here's the old argument. If it is a animated movie, kids will like it adults will hate it; right?
Chicken Run was a great film for everyone. It's not your normal rerun plots and story lines that we see from disney, pixar, et al. This is truely funny with real people (or real chickens). The characters are so apporoachable -- I even found myself rooting for one of the bad guys (Mr Twiddle).
The film is all fun, and still very compelling. Everyone will like this film.

Not a bad movie. I enjoyed it, but my wife was getting pretty restless about 2/3 of the way through. I also noticed the kids in front of me were beginning to move around and complain after an hour or so also.
The animation is nothing new. But the storyline pulls the movie through. I'd recommend it during the matinee hour, or at the budget. You won't go wrong unless you pay the $7 premium price.
***1/2 out of *****.
Don't fall for the good reviews, this is definitely a kids movie.
"Chicken Run" is a must-see live animated monvie about a group of chickens who are plotting to escape a chicken farm, which may looked like a prisoner of war camp. The film has made satire out of "Stalog 17" and "The Great Escape," plus two of the funniest mice around. Give them their own movie.

It's OK, but nothing special. A bit too childish at times.
