An animated movie about delivering babies? As a fertility nurse, this is right in my wheelhouse and my kids were both excited to attend an early screening of the Storks movie after seeing the previews.
This was our first 3D movie and we were all impressed at how it added to the story and wasn’t overly intense. The Storks movie is a clever, funny, and entertaining story that hit upon a number of important family topics. Impressive that an animated movie tackles multiple storylines that involve family-building challenges, parents that are hyper-focused on work at the expense of their kids, and what is truly important in life. Sounds like a lot of heavy material, right? It’s the humor and likable characters that keep it lighthearted and fun rather than too deep and dark.
Storks Movie Synopsis and Review
Storks deliver babies…or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for a global internet retail giant. Junior (Andy Samberg), the company’s top delivery stork, is about to be promoted when he accidentally activates the Baby Making Machine, producing an adorable and wholly unauthorized baby girl.
Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble before the boss gets wise, Junior and his friend Tulip, the only human on Stork Mountain, race to make their first-ever baby drop – in a wild and revealing journey that could make more than one family whole and restore the storks’ true mission in the world.
So, who should see the Storks movie? Both of my kids (5yo daughter, 8yo son), felt that Storks can be unboxed for anyone over the age of 4. I would agree with them and will just one criticism about how incredibly fast-paced the dialogue between characters occurred at times. Lots of kids were laughing, but I wish animated movies, in general, didn’t feel the need to overcompensate in the digital age with turbo-speed pacing and energy.
The Storks movie delivers a sweet and fun movie. If only it was that easy to make babies for all those trying to build a family.
Storks opens everywhere this Friday, September 23, 2016.

My family and I were provided with complimentary passes to attend an advanced movie screening of Storks in exchange for my unbiased and honest review. All thoughts are my own.
