After an incident leaving them unable to deliver a baby girl, storks no longer deliver babies and instead deliver normal packages. On the babies, Tulips, 18th birthday, Junior must fire her. However, a filing error soon has Tulip and Junior having to deliver a baby before anyone finds out.

 

So… I’m more in the mood to watch more movies than I am to write this, so let’s make this quick.

The story itself is interesting enough. It makes me really wish the storks actually delivered babies. Would be much easier.

The characters were ok. The pigeon was annoying as all hell and the baby didn’t do anything, but Tulip was cute and fun and Junior wasn’t too bad after he quit being annoying. Boss storks motives for being such a jerk never seemed to be fully explained though.

The voices seemed to suit the characters okay. The score was good, especially one of the songs near the end. It looked okay. Some of the colour choices seem a little odd but it was fun enough.

The only complaint I really have is the thing with Tulip at the end. I mean, isn’t it bad enough that the “orphan” was a ginger?

 

Anyway, I’d recommend it, for sure.
