This original movie by Warner Brothers studio, is one for the whole family to see. Rated PG, this heart-warming story  starts off by bringing the audience back to the beginning of time to when storks delivered babies. It suggests how at one point in time, if a couple wanted a baby, all they had to do was write a letter to the “Storks” and then wait for one of the big white birds to swoop through the skies, stop at the right house and drop off their bundle of joy.

Quickly, the plot takes a turn when business goes bad because of Storks being fed up with dealing with the hardships of delivering the babies. This concept is not explained very well or throughly, but the Storks quickly change their direction into delivering modern day technology items, like packages filled with phones and computers, completely dumping the idea delivering babies to “expecting” Mothers and Fathers. Business is now booming, and one of their most respected Storks, Junior, is about to get a promotion to Boss of the entire company from the top advisor, Hunter. This comes with one catch: firing the only human on Stork Mountain, Tulip, an orphan who was never delivered to her family and is seen as a nuisance. But gentle Junior is unlike heartless Hunter, who can’t bring himself to fire her, so he puts her in charge of the empty letter sorting department that has not been used since Storks stopped delivering babies to keep her out of the way.

The film switches over to a young boy named Nate, who is tired of being an only child and ignored by his workaholic parents. He discovers a brochure by the Storks, and write them a letter, unaware they stopped doing this practice years ago. Back at Stork Mountain, Tulip is overjoyed when she receives this letter and is excited to finally do something. She activates the baby factory, creating a newborn baby, causing a ruckus and risking Juniors new promotion.

Junior and Tulip team up together to deliver the baby without the big boss knowing, and getting back to business as usual. This takes them on a long journey, getting interrupted by a Wolf Pack, an Old Stork that troubles them, and even penguins. This film was packed with sight gags, one after another. It almost takes over the whole movie, and takes too long to get to the rest of the actual plot.

The story takes a dark twist as Tulip searches to find her family, and Junior goes on alone to deliver the precious baby. But, as soon as theres a visual gag about penguins, the humor is back on track. In the end, the Storks come to their senses and realize baby delivering is what their real calling is, getting rid of the artificial factory filled with packages. Storks is not a movie that will have you on the edge of your seat, but it is however a comforting, classic story that will leave you feeling delighted and content.

    I am very impressed with this movie review, great use of transition sentences, and although I’m not the biggest fan of Disney movies. This review alone makes me want to see it. I think you’re a great writer with so much potential! Keep up the good work.
