ROCK-A-DOODLE (Theatrical Release USA 1992)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì

Rock-A-Doodle—middle-of-the-road children’s flick—uses animated and live action scenes to tell its story. It uses the very good voice of Glenn Campbell for the singing rooster. The film does not work for the adult audience, but it serves up a clean watch for children.

Storyline

A young boy, transformed into a kitten, attempts to save the farm from darkness by finding the missing farm rooster who always raised the sun.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. The music is great; but the story, acting, and portrayal of story seem below par.
