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.

Storks isn't's just too generic for a marketplace that's often a site of genius.

It's a film that never really flies, hampered by that complex premise, an annoying street-talking pigeon, and a voice cast that can never quite bring the thing to convincing life.

Good news, parents: Storks is bound to entertain you and your little ones. Bad news: Get ready to answer a lot more awkward questions about where babies come from.

Parents will have to re-educate kids about where babies come from after they watch Storks, but facts aside, there is much cuteness that will make both young and old coo with delight.

Most of the movie doubles down on the mania and lacing the sugar-rush sensation with an almost lysergic sense of silliness.

Stoller has made the most amusing film of his career with this subtextual look at how modern corporate culture penalizes anyone wanting to become a parent.

At times, the pace is a bit too frantic for comfort, and the endlessly yammering Tulip is a tad exhausting, too, but the film's surreal silliness will leave you smiling all the same.

Storks,like The LEGO Movie,has a not-really complicated story,packed in a fast 1 (and a half) hour movie,along with his gags and a heartbreaking last scene.
