ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE, THE cover image Click to play video trailer
I absolutely loved this family friendly cartoon because it made me laugh out loud! The animation in this movie is exquisite. It is so detailed that you can clearly see all the feathers on the birds and tiny waves of the ocean. When they show scenes of the town you can see the patch work on the houses and the real looking scenery. Each character is unique because the creative animation matches their personalities.

This movie is about, Red (Jason Sudeikis), a red bird who never fit in and has anger issues. One day, he has to go to an anger management class and meets the birds Bomb, Matilda, Chuck and Terence, and they all become friends.

Then, pigs come to the island on an unexpected visit. They have parties with the birds and they give the birds weird gifts like trampolines and motorcycles and generally cause havoc in the town. A horrible turn of events happens and Red and all of the other birds need to save the day.

My favorite scene is when Red attends anger management class. Matilda, the instructor talks with all the birds about their issues. They participate in many funny exercises such as poetry writing and yoga. This is a funny scene. Red has the wrong attitude and is definitely negative and Matilda the instructor demonstrates some anger issues too.

My favorite character is Terence (Sean Penn), a giant red and black bird who doesn't really talk as much as he grunts. His facial expressions are particularly funny. Terence gets a lot of laughs from the audience and appears to be a crowd favorite.

The Angry Birds Movie is definitely a comedy. Almost every scene, even the sad ones, have funny lines. There is some humor that would make sense to older kids and adults but not little kids. There are some parts that some adults might not feel comfortable with some of the content. For example, when the pigs slap their butts and joke about reproducing.

I rate this movie 5 out of 5 stars because of the humor and recommend it for ages 4 to 18. It is a fun and silly animated movie about angry birds. Who doesn't love angry birds? If you like the game Angry Birds or just want to have a good laugh, then The Angry Birds Movie is the movie for you. It opens in theaters nationwide May 20, 2016 so, go check it out.

Do you like birds, pigs and sling shots and laughing? I know I do and I am so excited that they finally made a movie about the angry birds and their story.

If you're a diehard fan of Angry Birds, then you should see this because it explains everything and it will make you like the game even more. You find out why Red (Jason Sudeikis), a fellow Lithuanian. is always angry. The pigs are cute and cunning and all will be explained. They have an evil plot which leads up to the big pig vs bird war.

This movie is totally stupendous, hilarious and explains why the birds are so angry. There are so many punch lines and jokes that I was laughing and rolling on the floor. I find myself quoting so many of the jokes that are still stuck in my head. I think that adults and kids will both like the humor in this movie because it is appropriate and it appeals to a large audience.

The animation is crisp, clear and detailed. The island the pigs live on is amazing. No detail is left out and it is an incredible, giant city they live in. Each pig and bird is designed to show its peculiarity. The baby birds make your heart go awe every time you see one. They all match the game. I love how they keep the game details in the story.

The voice-over talent - Peter Dinklage, Sean Penn, Danny Mc Bride and Maya Rudolph - all excel in delivering an unique and interesting personality. The star-studded cast brings out the emotions of each individual bird. The birds look so real. I didn't even realize that they were animated until after I left the theater because they were so well portrayed. I loved the way it made me feel like I was part of this film.

The music is also quite suitable. I thought it was really funny that the birds were shown in rock 'n roll and the pigs as country. The mighty eagle and the mighty red song are just adorable to me. There is a large variety of different music throughout this film.

My favorite character is Josh Gad who voices Chuck. He is hysterical, goodhearted and ready for anything. I am starting to think that I have the need for speed and this is the bird for the job. Josh Gad deserves a huge pat on the back for his fast talking and energetic voice, which fit his part perfectly.

My favorite scene is one in which Chuck is so fast that he throws paint, moves pigs around and sets up the scene to distract the pigs for the bids. He starts this while Red is in the middle of a sentence and finishes before the sentence is over. That is what I call FAST! Of course, Chuck pretends that he has no idea as to what has just happened as chaos ensues.

I recommend this film for ages 5 to 18. Everyone in the theater laughed throughout the film and both the adults and the kids left with a giant smile on their faces. I give this movie 5 out of 5 sling shots with exploding angry birds attached. I really hope you can see this in a theater near you. Brought to you by Columbia Pictures and Rovio Animation, it comes out on May 20, 2016.

In the 3D animated comedy, The Angry Birds Movie, we'll finally find out why the birds are so angry. The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds - or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis, We're the Millers, Horrible Bosses), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride, This is the End, Eastbound and Down) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it's up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to. Featuring a hilarious, all-star voice cast that includes Bill Hader (Trainwreck, Inside Out), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids, Sisters), and Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), as well as Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live, Ghostbusters), Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development), Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Sisters),
