(2013) (voices of Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Animated Action: Two turkeys travel back in time to the first Thanksgiving to change the menu.
- Reggie (voice of OWEN WILSON) is a free-thinking turkey who tries to warn the other birds on his farm that they are being fattened up for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. But they won't listen. Amazingly, he is picked to be the one turkey the U.S. President spares each year as part of the White House's holiday tradition. He goes to live at Camp David as the pet of the Commander in Chief's daughter and soon discovers the joys of remote-control TV and ordering pizza.
Then, one day, he is nabbed by a rogue turkey named Jake (voice of WOODY HARRELSON) who tells him there is a secret government time machine dubbed S.T.E.V.E. (voice of GEORGE TAKEI) on the grounds of the Presidential retreat and that they must jump in it, travel back to the first Thanksgiving, and stop turkey from being on the menu. Once back there, they encounter a tribe of much smarter turkeys led by Chief Broadbeak (voice of KEITH DAVID); his militaristic son, Ranger (voice of JIMMY HAYWARD); and his good-hearted daughter, Jenny (voice of AMY POEHLER).
They are hunted by Captain Myles Standish (voice of COLM MEANEY) and his men, who are looking to gather food for the increasingly desperate settlers in their charge who are nearing starvation. He is pressured by the shifty Governor Bradford (voice of DAN FOGLER) who lords over the dwindling stockpile of food, knowing the dangers of the approaching winter.
