This review of Storks, like one of the most important packages in this movie, is better late than never!
I have to admit that I didn't really want to see Storks, the recently-released animated film from Warner Bros. Animation. My kids and I had seen the teasers and trailers for months, and even though they were dying to see it, the movie just didn't seem to grab my interest. After being quite disappointed in both Zootopia and Secret Life of Pets, I was not running out to see another animated movie about anthropomorphic animals. But, it in the end we went, and I was pleasantly surprised!
Storks is a really cute and funny film. It follows the adventures of a stork and a young woman who team up to deliver a baby. Yes, it sounds ridiculous, and you must have MAJOR suspension of disbelief for this movie, but if you just relax, you will enjoy the ride. You see, while storks used to deliver babies, they've now switched to delivering packages with lightning-fast speed. They stopped delivering babies when one didn't make it to her family 18 years ago, and she is now known as Orphan Tulip, or the heroine of the story. When she accidentally starts up the baby-making machine, she is determined to make sure this child does not become an orphan like she was. (Luckily, my kids did not ask me about storks and making babies and all that stuff!)
Whenever I see an animated movie, I find myself trying to guess what actors are portraying the characters. I was so wrapped up in enjoying Storks that I didn't resort to doing that! Besides being able to pick up on Andy Samberg, I didn't realize that Kelsey Grammer, Jennifer Aniston, and Ty Burrell were some of the other main voices featured in the film because I was just having so much fun.
Storks (Warner Bros. Animation) is in theaters now, so do try see so it before it's really too late! www.storksmovie.com
