Hey, things get boring on the farm for leader Shaun and his fellow sheep in the Shaun the Sheep Movie. When their farmer/owner disappears into the big city, Shaun leads the herd to search for him. Can the wooly flock survive in town? Will things change when they all get home?

Boring Life on the Farm

At Mossy Bottom Farm, sheep leader Shaun lives with his flock and other animals. The flock misses the fun they used to have with the farmer before everything settled into monotony so Shaun makes a plan to take the flock on a trip to the city. Whoops! He accidentally launches the sleeping farmer toward the city inside a small runaway travel trailer! The farmer’s loyal dog Blitzer follows the trailer telling Shaun to keep the flock at home.

Trouble in the Big City

Later, in the city, the farmer gets clunked on the head and ends up in the hospital with amnesia. He does remember how to shear a sheep and using clippers, becomes a famous hair stylist!  He still has no idea who he is. At the farm, the pigs have taken over the farmer’s house and are raising heck. This can’t go on! Shaun goes to the city and the flock follows. After several adventures, Shaun and flock find the farmer but he doesn’t recognize any of them.

Wrapping Up

The extras on the Blu-ray disc aren’t amazing but cute and the Shaun the Sheep Movie is sweet, funny, clever, full of love and beautifully stop-motion animated! The film is from Aardman Studios, the talented gang who created “Wallace and Gromit” and the “Chicken Run” movie.

The whole family will chuckle at the physical humor in the movie and you really root for these silly-looking sheep and especially for the stray dog they meet to triumph, escape evil and be happy at home. All this and not one word is spoken…although a song is sung. It’s like an amazing silent movie!

This adorable Shaun the Sheep film makes a great collectable and would make a delightful gift to unwrap and watch with the whole gang over the holidays! We go four stars.
