Tulip, being reassigned to Letter Sorting, since Junior couldn't find it in his heart to fire her, messes up when she gets a letter and it leads to the creation of the first baby in 18 years. Junior, who's up for a promotion and this incident would only hurt his chances, decides to help Tulip deliver the baby.

Pretty simple premise, but I think it works, since you also have the angle where Tulip, who never met her parents, wants to do her part in getting this baby to the people who want her. They do get into a little of silly antics, but I think the movie does do it in an entertaining manner.
Is the film the most consistent? Eh, not necessarily, but I still found this enjoyable. Some of the best bits of the entire movie have to do with the wolves, where they can literally transform into anything the Alpha shouts out. Another highlight would have to be Tulip and Junior's fight with the penguins where they have to be as quiet as humanly possible or else the baby, whom Tulip names Diamond Destiny, will wake up.
It's definitely silly, but I think it works. The story isn't anything to really write home about. There's also another side of things, which is the kid who asks for a baby brother with ninja skills, bonds with his workaholic parents as they build shit all around it to make it easier for the storks to deliver the baby. These parts of the film, with the kid and his parents, are the weakest of the entire film.
I just felt that it was a shallow way to pad the film's running time. Since, without this, the movie would have barely been over 1 hour long. But I guess you needed that perspective.

I just wish they would have done something more interesting with it. And, of course, since Junior and Tulip are delivering a baby, there's a lot of adorable baby shit here. I think they rely way too much on people finding the baby adorable to look over a lot of its flaws.

Sort of like how everybody, once they see Diamond Destiny, goes 'awwww' and they forget what they're doing to focus solely on the baby. That's what they hope to accomplish with audiences as well and, at least with me, it didn't work. I'm not saying I'm better than people who fell for it, but it just didn't work for me.
The voice acting is, by and large, really good. But there's one character that might literally have had some of the most annoying voice acting I've heard in a long time. And, you guessed it, it was Pigeon Toady. He speaks in the most annoying way possible, like he's some sort of surfer dudebro who uses the word 'brah' a lot. I'm not saying that Steve Glickman, who voiced Pigeon, did a bad job, I'm just saying that he was terribly annoying to the point that I wanted nothing more than for his character to die a horrible death.
Outside of appearing in Workaholics, this guy has a shit filmography. I honestly have no idea if this guy is actually funny or not, but if his performance here is any indication, then he's fucking dreadful.
What's Behind the Myth That Storks Deliver Babies?
And I know I said that he wasn't actually bad, but if this is the type of voices he does, then I will hate him in everything he does. That's how annoying he was. At the very least it's a minor character and they do get some funny moments out of it. Which brings us to the ending. Basically over a million infants are created and the storks are meant to deliver them all.
This is where the film actually shows its progressive side. You get to see quick flashes of all the families that receive babies, like one to two second flashes, and you get to see two LGBT couples one lesbian and one homosexual receive babies. You also see a single mother.
I'd like to say that it's subtle because of the fact that it's a quick flash, but it's really not. And I'm not saying that that's a bad thing in the least, I've always been very supportive of the LGBT community and their right to adopt. And it isn't, of course. The fact of the matter is that these people have a narrow-minded view of what families can be. Families come in all shapes and sizes, there's no one 'set' formula for what a family is or what it can be, regardless what these conservatives would have you believe.
And I'm glad that the movie, in however of a small dose it may have been, showcased that. With that out of the way, the movie isn't perfect, far from it. It's got a lot flaws and those flaws should be obvious. Showing of 2, reviews. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now.

Please try again later. Prime Video Verified Purchase. Cute, creative and action packed. My girls love it. Not sure, but I actually think it's easing the mind of my adopted daughter. She knows she's adopted, but not what it really means. This movie helps take the focus off the way kids get to their parents and focuses on the love that awaits them!
Okay, I don't have a "tiny thing" at home, but I loved this movie yes, a grown man can enjoy the silliness of a cartoon from time to time. This movie had fun and silliness written all over it. Someone posted it was better than Zootopia, I second that thought.
Loads of fun for the whole family plus a great message. Funniest scenes were with the Wolf Pack Rent or buy, have fun with it It was good for our 6 and 8 year olds without unnecessary language and "attitude" which sometimes creeps into animated "kids" movies. Great for family movie night! This had some good moments for both adults and kids my kids are both under 5 years old.
We laughed through a lot of it. I agree with other reviewers that the pace of action and conversation seemed unnaturally rapid. It took all my concentration to follow it at times. I think the comments about encouraging alternate family types are inconsistent; this is more like adoption than childbirth, and the real point is that children are valuable. Single moms can adopt kids too. The same gender couples don't have to be homosexual; they could be brothers, sisters, mom and daughter, aunt and niece, etc.
There are a lot of family types out there that adopt kids. And if the kids point it out, what a great talking point. Let's not be afraid of open conversations and truth teaching for the very young. These things will be seen at Walmart, Target, school, camp, etc. All in all, this movie made me hug my kids closer.
And this movie affirms that. This movie is adorable and full of entertaining metaphor that anyone can enjoy. I wonder if parents with kids watching this are going to be dealing with the kids begging the parents for baby brothers and sisters! There's a surprising number of subplots, all really smart and entertaining in different ways --either funny, with the wolves or relatable as with the working parents or the metaphor for adopted kids.
I also enjoyed the plot line with the corporate deliver company, a very amusing take on corporate culture. Now they deliver packages for global internet giant Cornerstore. 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 - in a wild and revealing journey that could make more than one family whole and restore the storks' true mission in the world. Written by Warner Bros. When it was released, I bought into the collective sigh of underwhelm that most critics expressed and that was my mistake.
It's easy to understand why the critical community didn't like it: We've been spoiled by excellence. As a result, we've lost the ability to enjoy the simple pleasures of pure entertainment. You might have noticed people commenting on how forced and thin the storyline is and how uneven it feels, and those complaints are accurate.
The plot is extremely thin virtually an extended sitcom-sized premise stretched into an epic road-trip format , and the story moves so quickly that it goes too far too fast with nary any breathing room to savor the experience or give the characters the tension or time to build any real catharsis or change. But the characters are so authentic to themselves that you know just about everything you need to know about them from their first scenes.
The emphasis on sight gags, pain-humor, and wackiness has generally been avoided in animated films as passe and vulgar--low comedy. The rapid-fire snark between the main characters of Tulip and Junior hearken back to the old Howard Hawks workplace comedies of the s, which is definitely an acquired taste in the post-narrative style of humor found in kids entertainment today--where non-sequiturs and punchlines exist in a vacuum and visual comedy is derived from abstraction rather than plasticity.
