Metacritic Score

  • 76

    A more than worthy (and weird) holiday diversion for the whole family.

  • 60

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Although it seldom approaches the inspiration of its plucky premise... Free Birds nevertheless manages to avoid being branded a holiday turkey.

    The Dissolve Scott Tobias

    Free Birds feels like Hollywood brining small children for the blockbusters they'll pay to see when they're older. It's littered with quips, but the film puts a premium on loud, ef...

  • Nick finally cancelled Sam & Cat!

    I know this is unrelated, but we finally got rid of Sam & Cat! Hallelujah! So that's one crappy Nick show down, seven more to go. Now we just need to get rid of: The Thundermans, The Haunted Hathaways, Breadwinners, Rabbids Invasion, Sanjay and Cat, Every Which Way, and AwesomenessTV.
  • Relentless Far-Left Propaganda In Disguise as Family Entertainment

    "Free Birds" lets the folks at ReelFX Creative Studios indulge in something Pixar wouldn't even dare to do, push revisionist history and liberal propaganda down our throats under the guise of family entertainment.

    Free Birds slams not only the pilgrims, but also the Native Americans as the bad guys while making turkeys played by Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson as the good guys out to travel back in time to the 16th Century and stop the first Thanksgiving holiday from ever happening. In case you missed the first few swings of this progressive, pro-PETA filth, the director installs a George W. Bush-esque president and a war-mongering US ARMY general as a stand-in for mockery. Ignore the far-left politics and the revisionist history, and you have a movie that had absolutely no purpose and an increasingly absurd story that fails to impress anyone.

    The story follows a Turkey named Reggie (Wilson), who thinks turkeys are dumb for not knowing that Thanksgiving is the time of year for turkeys to be eaten. The turkeys in the farm Reggie lives in think he's crazy, and kick him out as a result of this. Later on, the president's daughter finds Reggie all alone and later gets to adopt him with her father's permission. He lives a life of luxury as a result of this, and watches all the TV and orders all the pizza from Chuck E. Cheese's (wait.. Chuck E. Cheese delivers?) he wants. His luxurious dream life is later cut short when a big, bulk turkey named Jake (Harrelson) kidnaps him and recruits him on a mission to stop Thanksgiving from ever happening with the help of a time machine named . (George Takei). They later make allies with other turkeys from the 16th Century, including Chief Broadbeak (Keith David) and Jenny (Amy Poehler). That in itself is a plot that was so bad that I left halfway through, and Regal gave me a full refund (Regal is very good to customers and moviegoers for doing this whenever they don't like a movie).

    These pundits, activists and history revisionists disguising themselves as filmmakers need to read up on the real story of the first Thanksgiving to flesh out their woefully one-sided worldview, while their filmmaking persona should re-watch one of the great movies from the mastermind of CG animation (Pixar), and/or the pioneers of the feature animation field as a whole (Disney) to show how great family entertainment works.moreless
