IDID not have high expectations for this movie, but I was surprised how funny it turned out to be.
Storks used to deliver babies, but not any more. Now they deliver packages.
Top delivery guy Junior (Samberg) is promised a promotion by boss Hunter (Grammer), as long as he fires Tulip (Crown), a young girl who was never delivered to her rightful home as a baby.
Tulip is a well-meaning but clumsy girl and Junior finds it hard to fire her. Instead, he moves her into the defunct letter-sorting department.
On earth, a lonely boy called Nate (Anton Starkman) writes a letter to the storks asking for a baby brother.
Tulip plops it into the long, abandoned baby-making machine and out pops a cute baby girl.
Junior realises that his job is now on the line. So he, Tulip and baby sneak off in Tulip’s flying machine, where they encounter all sorts of adventures.
Look out for the hilarious wolf pack led by Alpha and Beta, who provide the most laughs in the film, as well as Nate using emotional blackmail on his career-driven parents.
There is a lot of absurdism in this comedy (such as the wolf pack turning into various objects) but you will find yourself laughing anyway.
Watch out for the Lego short about a kung fu master who battles a chicken at the start of the film. – S. Indra Sathiabalan
