Comments on Movie: Free Birds (2013)
"Not only rediscovers the giddy joy of being truly silly, it's confident enough to make us laugh without resorting to regurgitated pop-culture references or grownup double-entendres." - Katherine Monk,

"After a brief lesson in American history, British kids will probably have a fine time. And there's just enough double-edged comedy to keep grown-ups from squawking too." - Andy Lea, Daily Star.

"There are some good gags, the cast is incredibly likable and, most importantly, it held my kids' attention the entire time." - Mathew DeKinder, Suburban Journals of St. Louis.

"The film does boast an appealing buddy pairing in Wilson and Harrelson, a dash of conceptual originality, and some genuinely funny jokes." - Tara Brady, Irish Times.

"Watch this with a light heart, it's actually a very funny movie with plenty of gags" - Rosalyn Lim.

After initial rivalry and Jake bag kidnapping Reggie, they team up and hijack a time machine in a government lab and travel back in time to the first Thanksgiving to prevent turkeys from becoming the traditional holiday meal.

Movie Review: Free Birds (2013)
Reggie the pizza eating turkey and Jake, the President of the Turkeys Liberation Front.

Free Birds (2013) is a hilarious thanksgiving treat. Although it has received unfavorable reviews, I would say it's certainly not that bad. Some of the elements in the movie may be culturally offensive to some but if we watch this with a light heart, it's actually a very funny movie with plenty of gags. 

Jenny put an end to the fight between the two alpha turkeys.

As been mentioned at the beginning of the movie, Free Birds (2013) is a work of fiction. It is loosely based on historical events but it is no way meant to be historically correct or accurate. They claimed that the talking turkeys are real though. Still, the main characters (none other than the turkeys) and supporting characters (the time machine named S.T.E.V.E and the human such as the pizza guy, the president and his daughter) are quite likable, comical and adorable to a certain extent!

Adorable turkey chicks.

In short, this movie has the ability to make us laugh and laughter is good for our health. I guess ultimately, the creators only wanted to convey that pizza is more than delicious and filling; it can bring people (and animals) together! Talk about the importance of food!

Probably really, Free Birds (2013) is the greatest turkey movie of all time!

Free Birds (2013) Behind the Scenes

Favorite Movie Character
Daddy, it's this one!

I do not know what's her name and although she's just a minor character, this daughter of the fictional President of the United States is actually quite friendly! Although she gets tired and falls asleep pretty fast, she has nonetheless saved Reggie's life, making him the pardoned turkey! 

Even though the ending of the movie is a little vague, indirectly, this also means she has saved the turkeys off the menu right? Since she saved Reggie and from there he gets to watch tv and eat pizza?!

  125. You mean turkeys did this? 
  126. Oh, they ain't regular birds. They got magical powers! I've seen them disappear into thin air! Seen another two flying in a giant egg. They're playing with my mind. Trying to drive me crazy.
  127. We didn't save anyone. We made everything worse!
  128. I'm breaking like a hundred time travel rules, and this might destroy the universe, but I don't have a choice. I've come back from the future to tell you something really important.
  129. You're an idiot. Everything you want is back in 1621. Jenny, Jake, a whole flock of friends.
  130. I hate to say I told you so.
  131. My mind is being literally blown right now!
  132. I came back to make sure we stop and appreciate just how awesome this is.
  133. Listen to me, young Jake! I am The Great Turkey! The greatest of all turkeys! And I've come here to give you a mission! Not to save ten turkeys, or even a hundred, but all of them!

  140. Now that I wasn't on the menu, I could see the holidays for what they were. A time to share. A time to come together. To be with the ones we care about and who care about us.
  141. I thought I wanted to be alone. El Solo Lobo. Which I later found out was actually El Lobo Solitario. Turned out I just needed to find where I belonged.
