Free Birds 3D: Film review - the plotting simply doesn't stack up

(U) Jimmy Hayward, 91 mins Starring: Woody Harrelson, Owen Wilson, Dan Fogler

This animated feature is fundamentally misconceived. Its heroes are turkeys who don't like the idea of being eaten and therefore travel back in time to persuade the American settlers they should eat pizza instead at Thanksgiving.

Some lively voice work from Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson and colourful set pieces can't conceal the fact that the plotting simply doesn't stack up.
