Consensus: Colorful animation and a charming cast help Storks achieve a limited liftoff, but scattershot gags and a confused, hyperactively unspooled plot keep it from truly soaring.

Storks is charming, if often nonsensical in its plot line and frenetic in its pacing.

Despite a good deal of chaotic action and visual overkill (nothing is small in this movie), the story feels oddly thin and the running time feels padded.
