For centuries, Storks have delivered babies to humans. However, 18 years ago, that all came to an end when Jasper, a stork, wanted to keep one of the babies. In a tussle, the baby’s beacon broke and they never found her home. Today, the baby, known as Orphan Tulip, lives among the storks; and storks deliver packages for CornerStore.com instead of babies. Junior, a stork, has just delivered his 1,000,000th package and his boss, Hunter, has great news for him. Hunter will be moving up to the head office and Junior will become the boss on Monday. Hunter tells Junior to ensure is new position, he must not screw up until Monday and fire Tulip. Hunter points out that every time Tulip “helps”, production goes down. Junior tries to fire Tulip, but when he hears it’s her 18th birthday, he can’t. Instead, he moves her to the letter office and tells her never to leave.

Back on earth, Nate is a rambunctious little boy with parents who are overzealous about their non-stop real estate jobs. Nate, feeling lonely, decides that he wants a little brother. Henry and Sarah, Nate’s parents, tell him that he is enough and they aren’t going to have any more children. Later, Nate finds a Storks brochure in the attic and writes a letter requesting a brother. Of course, Nate’s letter winds up in the hands of Tulip. Tulip accidentally puts the letter in a baby maker and a baby comes out. Junior knows this will screw up his chances for his promotion if Hunter finds out.  So, he must fix it. With the help of Tulip and an injured wing, Junior will deliver this baby and get his promotion. Tulip wants to help because if she can help this baby find her family, maybe she can find her family one day, too.

Storks is as heartfelt as it is funny. Also, the Wolf Pack are as hilarious as The Hangover’s Wolf Pack and shape shift more than The Twilight’s Wolf Pack (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  They steal the show.  Storks is fun because it makes fun of itself for being outrageous and sometimes silly. It may not be a classic but it is worth seeing in the theaters. Children and adults will laugh alike and it may bring a tear to your eye. If you come early you will be treated with a Lego Short Movie, but don’t stay pass the end crawl. There is no need to see this movie in 3D, but full price will not be a disappointment.

I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars

If I go blind, it was worth it. – Junior

We have you and that’s all we need – Henry

We’re all the same and she’s a weirdo – Pigeon Toady

I don’t fit in anywhere at all and all I want to do is help – Tulip
