Free Birds was not the most dreadful movie I saw in 2013. It is a Thanksgiving movie which makes me wonder why anyone thinks it is relevant in South Africa where we don’t have a November harvest festival.
Turkeys are a metaphor for stupidity. This movie fits the mould. It is not awful – just not clever.
