Consensus: In its first non-Pixar CGI venture, Disney expends more effort in the technical presentation than in crafting an original storyline.

Animation fans will find this worth the wait, though apparently there's no story-generating software that can tap into the dark recesses of a child's psyche as cannily as Uncle Walt once did.

By the time the sky really does start 'falling' -- courtesy of an alien invasion -- Chicken Little's frantic efforts to stay farm fresh have started to wear on the nerves.

By a comfortable margin the worst feature to come out of the Disney Studios since they invented the American feature-length cartoon in 1937.

Only a singularly subversive sidekick, a Streisand-obsessed porker (Zahn), makes this movie stand out from a host of other mediocre animated kids' flicks.

I don't care if it's 2-D, 3-D, CGI or hand drawn, it all goes back to the story.

Heavy with the sweat of a studio straining to snatch the kids back by throwing digi-crayons, potty jokes, and disco tunes at the lens

This film's procession of dumb clucks and yuks manages to bring the roof down on occasion, if only through sheer manic exertion.

Cinema Crazed

A bland byproduct of too many cooks in the kitchen, with not enough ideas on how to bring their different sub-plots together into a cohesive entertaining film for kids.

I love the original story of Chicken Little, couldn't we at least have a faithful adaptation before the full blown cheap update? I loved the opening… More

I loved this as a kid, but now its stupid. Dumb story, animation, and voice acting. On the posotive this movie is funny and the characters are fun.
Lucas Martins
Talent cast and good story, Chicken Little flaw with a poor screenplay that don't save this first CGI picture non-Pixar of Disney. Rotten.
Michael Edwards
the animation and comedy in this movie is great and fantastic to watch
Bethany Murphy
Childhood favourite and a definite classic!

It was a bad idea for Disney to make a computer-animted film without the masterminds at Pixar. The animation was not all that great, the story was dumb, and… More
