| This movie is all compromise, no soul
What were they thinking? How can a Disney animated movie called "Chicken Little" be dominated by frightening alien attack scenes where established characters are vaporized? How can you make a Disney animated moved called "Chicken Little" dominated by jokes which either require the ability to read or a knowledge of 70s-era pop culture? How can you make a Disney animated movie called "Chicken Little" and have the central theme be "closure?" For those who haven't seen it, this last question is not a figurative one. The word "closure" is literally used as a central theme, revolving around the central character's inability to get over an incident in his past and the impact it had on his relationship with his dad. Give me a break. My quite-intelligent 10-year-old, who liked the movie's action and slapstick, had no idea what they were talking about. I wouldn't even bother bringing a sub-9 year old.

As for the 3-D version, there wasn't much point. This movie wasn't built around 3-D effects.

Don't get me wrong. I love the sophistication and frantic pace of recent animated films like The Incredibles or this director's own The Emperor's New Groove. This one doesn't even come close.
