1 out of 5 stars

Reggie (Owen Wilson) is the smartest gobbler in his flock. He knows his fellow turkeys are being fattened up for human consumption come Thanksgiving in November, though his dimwitted brethren are happily ignorant. Fortunately, fate puts our hero in the path of a muscular birdbrain (Woody Harrelson) with a magic doorknob that leads the duo to a time machine, which takes them back to the very first Thanksgiving where they proceed to… You might as well just make up the rest yourself; it will prove more satisfying than sitting through this laugh-free stab at an animated classic for the US ‘holiday season’. The target audience may be the kids who’ll stare goggle-eyed at any low-rent Pixar knockoff, but the purported humour and reliance on nonsensical plot twists are pure stoner. To call this a turkey would be an insult to poultry.
