An animated confection that literally is for (or at least from) the birds, this colorful fantasy from the makers of the "Ice Age" series reunites - vocally, anyway - Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg, who played siblings on the Fox series "Get Real" before they found movie success.
A macaw (voice by Eisenberg) is taken to Brazil, potentially to mate with another of the last of their kind (voice by Hathaway). As might be expected, it's not quite that simple, since animal smugglers get into the mix. Additional voices are supplied by George Lopez, Jane Lynch, Jamie Foxx, Wanda Sykes and will.i.am. DVD extras: five "making-of" documentaries; deleted scene; two music videos; "Carnival Dance-O-Rama"; "Jukebox." *** (G) (Also on Blu-ray and available Aug. 9 on Movies on Demand)Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
