Storks deliver babies…or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for a global internet retail giant. Junior, the company’s top delivery stork, is about to be promoted when he accidentally activates the Baby Making Machine, producing an adorable and wholly unauthorized baby girl...Wikipedia
Clocking in at a breezy 89 minutes, Storks merits the attention of its targeted kiddie audience. Adults will relate to its pleasures too.
Sure, the script is funny and there are plenty of sight gags. But while its economical run-time won't have tiny tots shifting impatiently in their seats, you might get the feeling that the film was a tad rushed along the way. In fact, to call the film fast-paced is an understatement. Nonetheless, the entertainment factor is still present and strongly so, and credit must be given for the rather original premise of the story. Kids are sure to find this one enjoyable.
Whether you are an adult or a kid, Storks has plenty of comedic punch to delight you. There’s the family comes first subliminal message too. While the it’s not path-breaking or world changing, it is adequately quirky and effectively mushy. A sort of perfect combination of entertainment and fun.
The story line is interesting (even though it’s beyond believable) and as animation comedies go, it’s got enough moments written in to make things entertaining for a bit. It’s central conceit seems inspired by a randomness that is all too wacky. It’s a strangely emotive world that balances fantasy with reality with animation technique that is quite kid friendly in its assay. This may not be wholesome entertainment at it’s best but it’s certainly cute enough to keep the little ones charmed.
Storks is a film I had absolutely no expectations from and it turned out to be the animated surprise of the year.
Adventure, humor, emotions – Storks has it all. This is the cutest movie of the year, and should not be missed. If that does not appeal to you, simply watch it for the funny wolves. Their creative skills will leave you amazed.
For those who look at the film as the ultimate management film, there are all sorts of subliminal takeaways, but for the others Storks is like being on an inexorable trip being constantly assaulted by different levels of twee.
It's not the best animation movie this year, but Storks does make for a decent distraction.While it doesn't answer the question of where babies come from, viewers of all ages should be able to enjoy it.
