(2016) (voices of Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Computer-Animated Comedy: An angry bird must contend with no one seeing the same danger when lots of pigs arrive on their bird island.
- On an island of flightless birds, Red (JASON SUDEIKIS) is the outcast, due not only to being a sarcastic sourpuss, but also because of his anger issues that have resulted in him living in a house on the beach by himself, far from everyone else. When his anger gets the best of him yet again, Judge Peckinpah (KEEGAN-MICHAEL KEY) orders that he attend anger management classes taught by Matilda (MAYA RUDOLPH). Joining him is the fast-talking and fast-moving Chuck (JOSH GAD); Bomb (DANNY McBRIDE) who literally explodes if pushed too far; and the hulking Terence (SEAN PENN) who does little more than growl and appear menacing.
Their classes are interrupted by the arrival of a ship of pigs led by Leonard (BILL HADER). Red is pretty sure they're up to no good, but Judge Peckinpah and the rest welcome the visitors who go to great lengths to feed and entertain them. But when Red, Chuck and Bomb discover the pigs' ship filled with even more pigs and lots of TNT, they decide they must seek out the legendary protector of their lands, Mighty Eagle (PETER DINKLAGE), for help, despite that bird having not been seen for years.
When that doesn't play out as they expected, they must come up with another plan, especially when the pigs steal all of the birds' eggs and set sail for a return trip to their own island.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they're fans of the "Angry Birds" game they probably will, while the computer-animated talking animals angle might draw in others as well.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For rude humor and action.
