AUDIO DESCRIPTION AVAILABLE – Please contact the cinema in advance

In this irreverent, hilarious, adventurous buddy comedy, two turkeys from opposite sides of the tracks must put aside their differences and team up to travel back in time to change the course of history – and get turkey off the holiday menu for good.

The animation is clean, cheap, cheerful and unlikely to keep John Lassiter awake at night. Well-meaning messages about cultural and historical sensitivity are as soft and feathery as the headlining foul. Based on an idea from Ren & Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi, Free Birds isn’t quite the anarchic fun the plot could have allowed for. But the film does boast an appealing buddy pairing in Wilson and Harrelson, a dash of conceptual originality, and some genuinely funny jokes. Tara Brady, Irish Times
