6.4 / 10


- Animation is good considering it's five million dollar budget. Granted, the quality isn't anywhere near what you'll find in a Pixar or Dreamworks film, but it's fairly decent for what it is.

- Humor is funny

- Likable characters

- Well paced

- Interesting mid credit and end credit scenes.

- Direction was good

- Easter Eggs and references to the original "Karate Kid" and "Rocky" were fun to watch.

- Voice acting wasn't that bad.


- Forgettable story. Weak script.

- The logic behind this animated world doesn't make a whole lot of sense to be quite honest. Some of the egg characters are treated like adults, while others are treated like children; even though it's clearly established in the film that some eggs do hatch to become roosters or chickens in life, but it's not too clear why other egg characters remain freaking eggs.

Also why the hell can a piece of bacon talk and act like a freaking human? That literally makes no sense.

- The sex jokes are bit too obvious, but I'm sure most kids probably won't pick on it. I just think for a movie that tries to sell itself as a family picture that it could've been a bit more subtle about it; similar to how "Animaniacs" did it back in the day.

- The overall art direction is kind of dull in this movie. Most of the setting for this film is bland and uninteresting.

- The movie follows every underdog sports movie cliche in the book. And unless you've never seen a movie in your entire life, then chances are you already know how it's going to end within the first five to ten minutes of it.

Bow chicka wow wow.

Believe it or not folks, these eggs know how to give happy endings, as they bring it up quite a bit in this feature.....

A cartoon straight out of Mexico

If someone had told me that I'd end up watching an animated film that glorifies cock fighting, then I never would've believed it given the PC era that we live in these days. However, "Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos" does just that. The story revolves around a young rooster named Toto, who dreams of becoming a cock fighter someday.

When his home is about to be sold off due to the fact that the farm lady can't pay for her mortgage, it's up to the chickens and the anthropomorphic eggs to figure out a way to raise the money before they become homeless.

To make a long story short, Toto becomes a cock fighter, where he has a chance to take on the champion. If he wins, then the farm is saved. If he loses? Well, he's homeless, and everyone is screwed. No pressure right?

As one would expect from a premise like this, "Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos" pretty much follows every underdog sports cliche in the book from inspirational speeches, to hard hitting training montages. The champ is undefeated, and the odds are against our would be protagonist. Hell, the film even makes a few references to the original "Karate Kid" and "Rocky" throughout the film, to poke fun at the fact that it's basically another underdog sports movie.

And to make matters a bit more interesting, the film features little Easter eggs by making some of the cock fighters based on real life celebrities, and various iconic characters, like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rocky Balboa, Mr. Miyagi, Manny Pacquiao, and etc.

Anyway, if you've seen a lot of underdog sports films before, then chances you already know how this one turns out. Although "Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos" is rather cute and funny in it's own way, the reality is that it's nothing original, nor does it stand out from most animated films; outside of it's strange character choices.

At the risk of sounding nitpicky, one of the little things I noticed is how confusing this fantasy world is set up. For instance. It's clearly established in the movie that some chicken eggs do hatch, and they inevitably grow up to be adult roosters and chickens over time. However, it's not the same situation with the other egg characters.

In fact, some of them remain freaking eggs so long that they're often addressed as adults throughout the film. Often citing adult references to each other, as a female anthropomorphic egg promises another anthropomorphic egg a happy ending after a massage if anyone can catch my drift. However, in other scenes, we see smaller anthropomorphic eggs being addressed as children because they're freaking eggs.

This not only makes the concept of this fictional world confusing, but it often makes you wonder how the hell does this world even work? How is it that some eggs hatch and some don't? And if some don't, then why do some eggs get treated like adults while others aren't?

Don't get me wrong, I know it probably relates to how long each egg character has been around that determines their age. However, it does seem a bit odd. Plus, there's even an anthropomorphic slice of bacon running around, and he seems to be the only one that exists.. How the f*** does that work? However, the movie tends to rely mostly on cartoon logic, so I guess we're not supposed to question such things. And by cartoon logic, I mean the animators and writers seem to make up their own rules as they go in this universe, so it's hard to take any of it seriously.

And if any parents are concerned about their kids being exposed to sexuality in a cartoon, then I should warn my readers about that now. There's a ton of sex jokes in this movie, and it's not subtle either. In one particular scene for example, an anthropomorphic egg character talked about how Toto's crush might want to go all the way with him. .

And when the male egg character got the female egg character to agree to giving him a happy ending after his massage, they quickly turn to the camera to wink at us; as if to suggest that they're going to do something nasty once the camera turns away. Don't get me wrong, I'm not opposed to sexual jokes and references being in children's cartoons, as i did grow up on shows like "Animaniacs" that was infamous for shoehorning sex jokes whenever they could.

But unlike "Animaniacs" that was a bit more subtle about it, "Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos" seems to be more direct about it's approach to shoehorn it's references to sex. Granted, I'm sure most kids probably won't know what terms like"happy ending" or "going all the way" means, but it just seems like it could've been handled a lot more subtly if they were going to slip that in. Not that it ruins the movie, as I personally didn't mind it. However, it's worth pointing out for those parents that might have a problem with it.

To be fair though, these sex jokes aren't brought up that often, but when they are brought up, it's rather obvious what they're talking about.

As for the voice actors themselves, I can't say anyone in particular stood out to me. However, everyone seemed to play their parts rather well. However, I should warn readers that the entire film is in Spanish with English subtitles; hence if you're not a big fan of reading subtitles and you don't speak Spanish, then chances are you might hate this movie.

The animation seems fairly decent when you take into account it's measly five million dollar budget it had to work with. Sure, the CGI animation looks a bit sloppy and unfinished at times, when you compare it to other CGI animated films of this year like "Minions" and "inside Out." However, it's surprisingly well made considering how low the budget was for it.

Overall, "Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos" isn't a bad movie per say, nor would I call it a great one either. If anything, it probably falls more along the lines of being one of those generic middle of the road animated movies that's decent to watch, but you'll probably forget about it years later because of how little it stands out.

However, if you're looking for a relatively non offensive animated film to take your kids to, then "Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos" isn't a bad choice; assuming you don't mind a few shoehorned sex jokes here and there. Just don't expect too much out of it, and you should be fine. Also, if any of you readers chose to see it, then I would recommend staying until the end of the credits, as it reveals something about one of the main characters of the movie.
