Chicken Run

Mr. Tweedy finds out the chicken's big scheme to escape on the night they're all supposed to be turned into pies. The chickens escape in the "crate" (flying machine) they built from their huts (despite Mr. Tweedy's attempts to stop them), but Mrs. Tweedy grabs onto a string of Christmas lights joined to the plane. Ginger tries to cut the wire while Mrs. Tweedy tries to decapitate Ginger with a hatchet. Thinking she succeeded, Mrs. Tweedy cuts the wire and gets stuck head-first into the pie machine. The chicken farm explodes and releases a cloud of gravy into the air. Rocky and Ginger, despite not having lips, kiss. The chickens land in a bird sanctuary and have families. Nick and Fetcher talk about starting a chicken farm and get into an argument about that they'll need to get started: a chicken or an egg?

Continuity mistake: When Mrs. Tweedy gets the idea of converting her farm when reading the brochure called "Sick and tired of making minuscule profits," a wedding picture of the husband and wife is seen on a cupboard at the back. Then, in the next shot, as Mrs. Tweedy slams her hand on her desk that same picture suddenly happens to be on the desk.

Trivia: As Rocky flies his tricycle over the fence to aid Ginger with the launch ramp, he flashes the European "flipping the bird sign" - index and middle fingers extended - to Mrs. Tweedy.

Question: Why didn't Rocky simply tell Ginger at the start that he couldn't fly, instead of dragging everyone through that whole charade. I realise that it was crucial to the plot, but was there any other reason?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Because he wanted them all to have something to look forward to, he didn't want to let them down. Plus Rocky is very bigheaded, it would no doubt be embarrassing for him to admit that he couldn't fly.

THGhost

Answer: The exchange was he would teach them to fly so he could hide out from the circus and he didn't have anything else to offer them.
