Free Birds is pleasant enough holiday fare. And kudos to the animators for transforming a rather unattractive — or at least unappreciated — species into a cast of endearing characters.

While the overall concept of the script is pretty creative and original, at several points along the way the storyline gets a bit muddled.
Although it seldom approaches the inspiration of its plucky premise... Free Birds nevertheless manages to avoid being branded a holiday turkey.
A cute but disposable item were it not for the story’s weird racial undertow.
Like so many modern animated features, Free Birds packs too much in; the picture feels cramped and cluttered, and, despite its occasionally manic action, it moves as slowly as a fattened bird waddling toward its doom.
In the end, the jokes simply aren’t funny enough to lift these flight-challenged fowl off the ground.
