Kids will hear the same trivia about the First Thanksgiving that they probably learned in school: that ina group of English settlers at Plymouth Colony the Pilgrims and members of the local Indian tribe the Wampanoag shared in an autumnal feast together that included wild turkey. The animated Pilgrims also make it clear that they needed to trade with the Wampanoag to survive. There's a message of collaboration, teamwork, leadership, and working toward the greater good.

Anyone who's seen Chicken Run will wonder why they're not enjoying a well-constructed Aardman animation rather than attempting to make sense of this incoherent transatlantic trifle.
Mark Kermode. Ultimately embarrassing and even offensive but has an offbeat premise, some neat characters and plenty of guffaw-worthy gags. Charlotte O'Sullivan. Surely Owen Wilson can do a lot better than a slipshod animation about time travelling turkeys? Sophie Monks Kaufman. The film does boast an appealing buddy pairing in Wilson and Harrelson, a dash of conceptual originality, and some genuinely funny jokes. Tara Brady. It's weirdly confusing and structurally unsound, though no more so than any film about time travel, including Looper and Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.
It is, however, enjoyable, with some funny lines. Peter Brhaw. The script is furiously unfunny - in the 17th century part of the story we get a 'my wife's cooking' joke, Kids movie free birds certainly feels like it belongs there Robbie Collin.
Feels average, like a flightless bird trying to soar with the Pixars of the genre. Richard Crouse. It's nice to get a Thanksgiving movie that doesn't revolve around tedious family drama. Though you may wind up having in uncomfortable conversation with your kids about exactly where your holiday meal comes from. Brent McKnight.
Much can be overlooked if such a movie is rollicking good fun. But Free Birds isn't even that. That's right, I'm going to say it.
It's a turkey-and not one of the time-traveling freedom-fighter species, either. Kathi Maio. Free Birds is a quite surprising little family movie. That concept of time-traveling turkeys to stop Thanksgiving is something you think would be deserving of a "c'mon son" greatly.
Julian Lytle. Rather than a holiday treat, Free Birds has itself ended up something of a Thanksgiving turkey. Ben Nicholson. It is trying very hard not to say anything real one way or another, but it's not amusing enough to distract us from the script, and the script is trying so hard to be noncommittal that it can't fall back on substance either. Abbie Bernstein. Free Birds, an animated buddy comedy that evokes the daffiness of classic Chuck Jones cartoons, is no turkey.
