Little Chicken’s Egg-Cellent Adventure Plot
A giant was going to have bacon and eggs for breakfast but Rolo (who is an egg but later turns into The Little Chicken) comes and saves the eggs. He then turns into a teenage rooster, but everyone calls him a chicken. The old lady where he lives goes bankrupt and this means that she has to sell the farm, making everyone homeless. Rolo then falls in love with a chicken, and her dad tells Rolo that he can make money to save the farm by wrestling. He helps Rolo by teaching him his best moves and then takes him to the ducks so that they can teach him how to fly. He must beat the champ Talons of Thunder. When he beats him he gets loads of money and this means that they can carry on living in the farm.
Featuring the voices of Zachary Gordon (Diary of a Wimpy Kid), Jon Heder (Napolean Dynamite), Amber Montana (The Thundermans); Directed by Rodolfo Riva-Palacio Alastriste, Gabriel Riva Palacio Alatriste and distributed by Lionsgate UK Ltd/Lionsgate International (UK) Ltd.
Little Chicken’s Egg-Cellent Adventure Rated PG:
- The opening scene is one of mild threat as the female giant plans to eat the eggs! She has sharp teeth and glowing eyes – and a bit of a roar. Characters are quickly rescued however.
- There is mild comic violence – showing fighting in a boxing ring – including showing moves such a punching and karate chops. No chickens or roosters were harmed in the making of the animation (and the characters aren’t shown to be really hurt).
- There are references to drugs – ‘erbs, flying and tripping.
- There is mild sexual content with the talking eggs kissing by sticking their tongues out and licking one another; plus there is a comment about putting a sock on the door when two members of the opposite sex are talking to one another.
- Mild bad language includes: sharted (with comical farting), butt, screw, mother clucker and what the duck are you doing?
Little Chicken’s Egg-Cellent Adventure Verdict
My 2 youngest sons loved this film and chuckled throughout. In fact it was my 8 year old who enjoyed it so much he described the plot above to me (please forgive him for any slight errors!). I can definitely see this as a film that they will watch again and again and think it has a great Easter feel, plus some important things for children to think about.
