Orphaned and bushy eyebrows have made Red an outcast all his life. But since he couldn’t beat the flock, he alienated himself from the flock. Now, Red provides food and entertainment for children’s birthday parties. When a parent claimed he was late, Red lost it and cracked the parents’ egg. The parents took Red to court for causing them mental distress. Since, Red’s face is the first face their hatchling saw, it calls Red daddy. The Judge sentenced Red to anger management, the worst punishment for this happy flock. In anger management Red meets Matilda (the group’s leader), Bomb (exploded when he was frightened at his surprise party), Chuck (speeding, robbery, credit card fraud, and destruction of property), and Terrence (what ever he did, it was horrific). Then a ship rolls in carrying … what else … pigs. Red knows Leonard, King Pig, and his friends intentions are bad. However, all the other birds just want to be happy and welcome the pigs. Finally, with the “help” of the Mighty Eagle, Red sees the Pigs’ nefarious plot. Steal all the eggs and eat them! Now Red must teach the birds to be angry and fight to save their children.

Ok … well … this movie is cute. The plot is a mix of Despicable Me, Up, Indian Jones, and X-men: Days of Futures Past with the Angry Birds game. It didn’t break any ground in animation or story telling. It tried to tug on the heart strings but you won’t care enough to get emotional. It’s adult jokes fell flat. The score is the best part of this movie. They picked new and old music to capture the tastes of all movie goers. Also, the voice actors did a great job with a bad script. If you take your child to see this movie, expect them to leave with the same feeling as The Good Dinosaur. Ok but not great and a little bored. Also, your younger children probably won’t eat eggs for a while. Wait for Red Box. Angry Birds can be skipped.

I give this 2 out of 5 stars

I thought you said you stored your nuts for the winter – Leonard

Wisdom is not something that is given. It is attained – Mighty Eagle

Pluck my life – Red

It’s a shame when you create something and someone else destroys it – Chuck
