Storks deliver babies…or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for a global internet retail giant. Junior (Andy Samberg), 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.
We saw the screening for Storks the other night. I admit, it was much better than I expected. I laughed out loud at a number of different scenes. My daughters, 10 and 13, really enjoyed it and would go again if their friends wanted too. My husband thought it was slow in a few spots, but enjoyable. The animation was seamless showing huge advances in hair and water.
There are strong messages about parents spending time with their children. Not to miss out on those quality times before it is too late. Pay attention to the wolves, they steal the show and the laughs. Be prepared, you may need to have a discussion about where babies come from after seeing this flix.
