Stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

A sweet movie, full of laughs and enough poignant moments to bring a tear or two to the eye of a sentimental sap like me.

The concept – that storks deliver babies – was explored in many of its modern implications, including the risks posed by airplanes and how home businesses affect parenting, but could maybe have spent more time looking at single and same-sex parenting structures. Saying that, alternative family models could be discerned by an attentive viewer.

As a family-friendly movie the pace was a bit disjointed and rushed, with a slight over-reliance on visual gags and banter. In spirit it was reminiscent of Inside Out, The Lego Movie (with whom it shares an animation team), and Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs.

Though it lacked the emotional core that could have elevated it into a great movie, the babies were cute and it was certainly watchable.
