The web address in the movie, "cornerstore.com", appears to be a real commercial website unconnected to the movie and NOT some fictitious web address. See more »

Storks, since the beginning of time we have been tasked with delivering babies to people. No matter how hard or painful or boring it got, we would never stop delivering babies. Thank goodness we don't have to do that anymore!

Storks looked an average goofy family film that we get a ton of every year. The story is clever, but the trailer did not lend anything that this would be nothing other than passable. I'm surprisingly happy to have seen this movie because it offered a better than most story with heart and a goofy sense of humor.
Good: Nicholas Stoller directs this movie with the wit of his other films. The story has a clever plot and there is an ocean of jokes being presented one after another. It felt like a good Looney Tunes cartoon with the over the top slapstick which was funny for the most part. The voice acting is great from all the actors that fit the characters instead of relying a famous voice for the sake of having a famous actor. The family in the subplot were also likable thankfully because usually families in the side plot just rely on clichés and stupid jokes.
Bad: The story does follow the typical beats of a underdog story. It never truly goes and does something different.
Overall, it isn't anything revolutionary or deep, but when it comes to silly animated films this one of the better ones we've had recently.
