    Good news, parents: Storks is bound to entertain you and your little ones. Bad news: Get ready to answer a lot more awkward questions about where babies come from.

    A few hesitations: Storks deliver babies? This is a far more complex proposition for parents to explain away than cars that talk and toys that live secret lives while their owners are out of sight. And it's disturbing that, at the climactic moment, the villain is clearly threatening the lives of thousands of cooing babies in favor of corporate greed. With any luck, that dark realization will go right over the head of young viewers. Lastly, it's great that Nate's workaholic parents learn how much fun it can be to work a little less (a luxury for most working parents) and spend more time with their son. But the true lesson of parenthood is the realization that it's important to spend time with your children even during all those times when it's not that much fun. Bottom line? Storks blends strong messages with a fun story -- just be ready to talk about where babies come from.

    Cartoons these days seem to be made as much for adults as children, if not more so. So while kids will laugh at Storks' slapstick antics, their parents may be more prone to sniffle a bit. Juxtaposed against the promise and joy of new life, the movie reminds us that these babies eventually grow up. That the time we have with them is fleeting.

    Parents need to know that Storks is an animated love letter to the realization that the time parents have to share with their children is brief, sweet, and to be cherished. There's plenty of peril: A large pack of wolves pursues key characters and threatens to eat them, a giant machine wreaks destruction, babies drop from great heights, jet packs go haywire, a homemade flying machine crashes at the precipice of a glacier, etc. But the suspenseful scenes are almost always resolved safely. The question of where babies come from is answered in a way that might confuse younger children (be prepared for questions afterward -- or during!). One main character is an orphan who's longed to find her family her whole life; at one point, her dear friend is upset when she talks about finding her "real family." There's a little bit of language ("butt," "heck"), some bodily function humor, and a couple of wink-wink moments between adult characters. Corporate greed and insensitivity are raised (and portrayed negatively), but overall, this is a clever, action-packed comedy with messages about teamwork, perseverance, and compassion. USER REVIEWS See all user reviews (42) PARENTS SAY See 29 parent reviewsage 8+ Review this title! KIDS SAY See 13 kid reviewsage 6+ Review this title! WHAT'S THE STORY? IS IT ANY GOOD? QUALITY This sweet family comedy was written and conceived by smart people who clearly know something about the project of raising children, in all its combined sweetness and bitterness. Storks is a hurricane of nonstop cartoon action, gags, and goofiness mixed with emotional sophistication that will appeal to both the young target audience and the adult sherpas who guide them safely to the theaters. That sense of protectiveness of our young is exactly the bell this movie sets out to ring, and it does so with intelligence, wit, and the right dose of silliness. Glaringly absent is any pretentiousness or condescension, and that's good news for both kids and parents. Samberg, Grammer, and Crown's voice talents are perfectly encouraged by co-directors Nicholas Stoller and Doug Sweetland. The latter was an animator on Toy Story, another great movie that authentically depicts a child's world; the animation in Storks is similarly impressive. (Watch a wolf pack collectively become a submarine on command.) And perhaps Stoller, who also co-wrote The Muppets and directed Neighbors, is responsible for the little observations that we scarcely notice in life but that resonate so strongly on the screen. (Watching enemies fight quietly so as not to wake a sleeping baby is one of the movie's funniest scenes.) A few hesitations: Storks deliver babies?

    What Works? Storks would be a rather forgettable movie if not for stellar voice acting. The film has assembled an impressive cast of celebrities which include the likes of Samberg, Grammer, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, all of whom attack their roles with sheer delight. Key and Peele in particular shine as the leaders of a spastic wolf pack who become smitten with a human baby, and it's a shame their characters didn't get more screen time. Storks further capitalizes by taking advantage of the natural humor surrounding newborn babies. One rather noteworthy scene depicts Tulip and Junior arguing over who will stay up with the fussy baby, an experience which will have most parents snorting with laughter. All things considered, Storks succeeds at being a fun, refreshing film, if not entirely coherent. What Doesn't? Sadly, despite the animated premise, Storks might not be the best movie for children. There's nothing scary, vulgar, or overtly sexual about the film, it's just that the tone is primed more for adults than it is for children. The dialogue, pace and story bounce off the walls like an over-caffeinated twelve year old, and it's hard to imagine any youngster sitting through the entire movie without a little restless squirming. Worst of all is Pigeon Toady (Stephen Kramer Glickman), a character set up to be the villain but who only succeeds in becoming so dull and obnoxious it's actually hard to watch.

    "Storks" is a step down from 2016's best animated options, like "Zootopia" and "Kubo and the Two Strings," but it's a lot better than many of the routine efforts studios have released in attempts to draw parents into theaters throughout the year. It has a fun and original idea, strong, familiar voice-over performances and some clever writing and execution.

    ages 12+ | Not Worth Your Time

    Popular culture's relentless drive to portray a homosexual lifestyle as merely one more form of diversity and its view of out-of-wedlock motherhood as a respectable choice, at least for mature women, mars the otherwise unobjectionable animated comedy "Storks" (Warner Bros.). Though the images by which these messages are conveyed are brief, even teens who are not well catechized should keep their distance from the movie.
