First, obviously this movie is for little kids. However, it is certainly bearable for parents as well. Kids love basically whatever you put in front of their faces. This is a funnier than average kiddie flick with good performances all around. It's not Oscar worthy, but then, what kid movie is?

Paint-by-numbers kiddy fare is admittedly enjoyable in places, but it bogs down before long and the barely 90 minute running time seems much longer. Will a parrot find his way home? By the end I didnít really care. Good performances help the process along: Itís nice to see Cheech Marin and Gena Rowlands, Hallie Kate Eisenberg is good in her debut, and Jay Mohr is surprisingly fun as the voice of Paulie (and is much more talented at doing this than he is at acting, which he also attempts in the movie.

10-point scale rating: 5

A dull kiddie movie about a talking bird name Paulie who had to journey west to find his owner and along the way he ran into oddball characters. The relationship between Paulie and Gena Rowlands nearly redeemed the movie.
