Chicken Little (*1/2)

This movie will give you a headache. It's so frantic and rushed, and doesn't slow down for anything. I don't mean that in a good way either. This isn't an exciting movie, it's a hyper one. There's a difference. The filmmakers are so worried about pleasing you every second of the film that they forget to incorporate a story or characters worth caring about. Much has been made of this being Disney's first computer animated film without Pixar. Boy, do they need Pixar. There's no use comparing this film to any of Pixar's because it is so out of that league. Zach Braff is well cast in the title role, and there are some funny film in-jokes in the first two minutes, but after that, you've seen all this movie has to offer. Yes, the animation is great. But where's the story? It's just stupid: half the film is set to cheesy pop songs. I guess the writers were too lazy to actually write anything clever or of substance. Then there's a pointless baseball game that lasts for what feels like 20 minutes of the movie's 79 minute running time. This one's strictly for those viewers who like Teletubbies, and have the attention span to prove it.
