DVD Review: Shaun The Sheep Movie

From Aardman, the producers of Chicken Run and Wallace & Gromit comes Shaun the Sheep Movie, a farm-tastic adventure for the whole family, arriving just in time for the holidays on Digital HD November 10 and Blu-Ray™ Combo Pack (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) on November 24 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Perfect for the young and young-at-heart, this “world-class winner” (Rolling Stone) is rated 99% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and was the #1 movie on their Summer Movie Score Card for 2015.

MEET SHAUN! He’s a little sheep with big dreams, and lately, life on Mossy Bottom Farm has become a bit dull. When Shaun takes the day off for some fun in the Big City, he gets a lot more action than he bargained for. Now Shaun and his flock must use their wits to hatch a baaaa-rilliant plan to get back home in an adventure the whole family will love.

The Shaun the Sheep Movie home entertainment release comes loaded with bonus features including a fascinating look behind-the-scenes of the making of the film as well as interviews with the cast and crew. The Blu-Ray™ combo pack (plus Digital) and DVD (plus Digital) will be available for $34.99 and $29.95, respectively. 

My Thoughts 

Shaun decides to take a day off and visit the big city along with this flock. They were just hoping for a good time, but soon the sheep are being chased by the local animal control warden. To put him off their trail, one of the sheep dresses like a human. This only makes the warden want to pursue "her" for a totally different reason. This makes for lots of fun, slapstick humor.

Shaun the Sheep's first full length film was definitely a big hit in my household. The characters are fun and colorful, and Shaun didn't lose any of his silent charm by extending the length of this time on screen. This is a great family movie that's perfect to watch on family movie night.
