The concept seems too dated for a 2016/17 animated movie as the notion of babies being delivered by storks is not something I believe most children are familiar with in this day and age.
The concept may be abstract but offers the adult viewers something different and fresh which is that Storks deliver babies or at least they used to practice this but now they deliver parcels. A drone like courier company that utilises the skills of some feathered employees for a global internet retail giant.
Junior (Andy Samberg) is the company’s top delivery stork and poised for promotion when he lands himself into a situation that could destroy his perfect reputation with his boss.
Partnered with Tulip a human girl, they start up the baby making machine by accidentally accepting a baby request.
Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble, Junior and his friend Tulip (Katie Crown), the only human on Stork Mountain, race against time to make their first baby drop before the boss (Kelsey Grammer) finds out.
Entertaining revamp of a dated concept, this movie is a good choice for all members of the family. The movie is light on memorable music but makes up for it by being humorous.

- I enjoyed the movie, it was an interesting take on the old Stork “tale” with some new age thinking going into it. – Leon de Bruin
