More likely to inspire stupor than laughter, this ’toon seems to be as loaded with sleep-inducing tryptophan as its turkey heroes.

Director Jimmy Hayward ( Horton Hears A Who! ) gets off to a bad start with an unworkable premise that sees mild-mannered Reggie (Owen Wilson) taken under the US First Daughter’s (Kaitlyn Maher) wing before being enlisted by militant Jake (Woody Harrelson) to travel back in time and sabotage the inaugural Thanksgiving.

Any comparisons with Chicken Run are rendered poultry by half-baked gags. Even tykes will tell it to get stuffed.
