Storks

The Sun (Malaysia) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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
