Chicken Little

 

Chicken-Little-Poster-web Tasteful vocal performances, by a talented cast including Zach Braff, Garry Marshall and Steve Zahn, can’t relieve Disney’s first inhouse all-computer generated animation movie from its music video trappings. The parable centers on an alien invasion that threatens to finish of the earth. After Chicken Little (Braff) is publicly dismissed as a nut case by the community for his famous "sky is falling" incident, the child chick attempts to win respect by joining a baseball team with the support of his fellow outcast friends Abby Mallard (Joan Cusack) and Runt (Zahn). Characters break into song and dance over ‘70s pop hits that would be better left forgotten. "Chicken Little" doesn’t hold a candle to "Wallace & Gromit: The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit."

Rated G. 81 mins. (C-) (Two Stars)
