In Storks, storks deliver babies to all the families in need of one, but recently, this business has... well... gone out of business, replaced with a delivery service that delivers furniture and appliances. Junior (Andy Samberg) wants nothing more than to be the boss of his company, and this dream of his is about to come true, so long as nothing goes too wrong. Enter Tulip (Katie Crown), a young orphan lost from her family and living in the stork workspace. After mucking up and causing destruction one too many times, Junior sends Tulip to the mail room, where he presumes no mail will actually be sent to. But it's in the mail room where she receives a letter asking for a baby to be delivered, and upon accidentally making a baby (no, not in that way), Junior must help her deliver the baby to its family before his boss finds out and fires him.
It's a fast paced, well animated comedy that has an excellent voice cast, even if most of them aren't too recognisable and I didn't even realise they were in the movie until afterwards. But maybe that's a good thing, as it didn't take me out of the moment trying to think of who this actor was. I just presumed it was some b-grade actor, yet to my surprise, it wasn't. And all the cast do do a good job, particularly Andy Samberg who works as the film's lead. Well, everyone except Stephen Kramer Glickman, who didn't necessarily give a bad performance, but the character he portrayed, Pigeon Toady, just annoyed the hell out of me. I was waiting for every moment when this character was not on screen as I hated him with a passion.
As a film, it is really disjointed. The plot is all over the place, covering thousands of subplots without any of them flowing well together. They try to do too many things, and while it's very ambitious and I do appreciate some of the things they were trying to do, as a whole it just did not flow. There were so many random and painfully unfunny moments, and I just wasn't sure what the hell I was watching. I was constantly looking over to my friend in a state of severe confusion, not sure as to why the things happening were actually happening. Nothing made sense, nothing was funny and I just was not enjoying the movie I was watching.
