Storks have moved on from delivering babies to packages. But when an order for a baby appears, the best delivery stork must scramble to fix the error by delivering the baby.

The critical consensus

Despite the presence of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) as executive producers, the convoluted plot of Storks may leave both parents and children scratching their heads.

At times, most notably when Tulip and Junior are fleeing a shape-shifting wolf pack, the visual ingenuity is breathtaking. What drags the film down is its relentless mawkishness and predictability.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 12/10/2016

It serves up a nonsensical plot, lots of bright colours and a raft of celebrity voices (Andy Samberg, Jennifer Aniston, Ty Burrell), but not much else.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 13/10/2016

Perhaps it’s fitting that this story about babies has the attention span and grasp of logic of a newborn.

**(*)(*)(*)Olly Richards, Empire Online, 13/10/2016

This is a really weird animation – weirder, perhaps, than it entirely intended to be.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 14/10/2016

There are some random funny moments but most of the time it feels manic, mirthless and lacking in charm.

**(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 14/10/2016

This avian online delivery animation is one for the whole family.
