Free Birds

By October 31, 2013

Free BirdsThanksgiving themed movies are few and far between, so I was excited when I found out about the movie Free Birds, which opens in theaters on November 1.

While the premise of the movie, turkeys going back in time to change the "course" of history and get turkeys of the menu, isn't all that unexpected, it's still a fun idea, especially when you consider all of the potential of the setting. Now of course, we wouldn't want the movie to be a boring history lesson or anything, but this movie would be perfect for throwing in a few scenes from that first Thanksgiving or of the time period in general that would enrich audiences. Not only that, but the setting has the potential to be incredibly whimsical, lush and all kinds of delicious.

Did I fully expect Free Birds to live up to this glorious potential? Not fully, but I hoped it would tap into the rich heritage of the season a little. We took the kids to see the film and had a great time, but overall, the movie was not nearly as flavorful as it could have been. READ MORE about Free Birds in our Review for Parents...
