Storks has some good elements but not all adults will like it
Animated films are a medium that can tackle all kinds of subjects. They can look at the animal kingdom, other planets or even things that can happen in real life. Most of the time they take audiences on amazing journeys where a lesson or two along the way. Storks is a film that puts two odd characters together and takes them on an amazing adventure. I was able to see it early and here is what I thought of it.
Here is the plot for Storks:
Storks deliver babies — or at least they used to. Now, they deliver packages for a global internet retail giant. Junior (Andy Samberg), the company’s top delivery stork, lands in hot water when the Baby Factory produces an adorable but wholly unauthorized girl. Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble, Junior and his friend Tulip (Katie Crown), the only human on Stork Mountain, race against time to make their first baby drop before the boss finds out.
I liked Storks, but I had a few issues with it. Their are scenes that were excessive and that tried to hard to get laughs. One scene that comes to mind should have been cut short. Instead it goes on too long and gets too silly to be that funny after a while. Some of the film drags on longer than it should which hurt the film in more ways than one.
Storks does have a clever plot, and the cast has a lot of fun voicing their characters. I enjoyed watching these two unlikely allies grow into something much stronger. The film delivers a few cool surprises towards the end that made me smile, even though I saw a few of them coming. Overall it is something kids definitely will want to see this weekend.

Storks gets 7/10. It was not the best animated film I have seen all year, but once it was all over I liked it more than I thought I would. The ending is what really helped raise the bar for this film in my eyes. It is full of plenty of twists, turns and a conclusion that was pretty satisfying. This film was made mainly for kids yet there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy together.
