Storks deliver babies or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for global internet giant Cornerstore.com. Junior, 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 â" in a wild and revealing journey that could make more than one family whole and restore the storks' true mission in the world.
Everyone knows of the "storks deliver babies' idea, I'm sure, and this film takes that idea and takes us all on a fun ride.
18 years ago there was a mishap and the storks stopped delivering babies and began delivering items (so basically courier post, but via the sky and not trucks/vans etc. Fast forward to now and Junior and Tulip accidentally create a baby and off they go to deliver it to its home. Of course there are plenty of hyjinks and mishaps along the way. The story was fun and had some good moments (such as reminding parents that being too attached to phone/works creates distance between you and child) but also a big plot hole (where did the babies come from if the storks don't deliver them any more?).
My favourite part in this film has to be the wolf pack, without giving too much away, they join up to make things like a wolf bridge, boat etc and I thought not only the items but how they pulled it off was great. My elder two kids were hooked on the film and whilst they didn't laugh out loud often, they weren't fidgeting and both said they enjoyed it, thinking it was a fun movie. I don't like the trope of 'let's hurt each other to create laughter/distraction etc. but that would be my only gripe with this movie. The movie was well paced and I love the young boy who set it all in motion by asking for a baby brother.
This is a fun family film, better than some I watched last year. A great take on the 'where do babies come from' stories.
