Ty Bur­rell, Danny Trejo As Storks opens, the feath­ered waders have, un­der the guid­ance of hawk­ish chief ex­ec­u­tive Hunter (Gram­mer, in fine bel­low­ing form) quit the baby-de­liv­er­ing game to fo­cus on parcels. A se­ries of mis­ad­ven­tures brings the heroic Ju­nior (Sam­berg) and his bum­bling hu­man side­kick Tulip (Crown) ac­ci­den­tally back into the baby dis­tri­bu­tion busi­ness. This an­i­ma­tion is amus­ing enough, but it never quite makes sense of its own mythol­ogy. G cert, gen re­lease, 87 min
