Plot Summary

When you're the world's funniest, fast-talking parrot, you can find yourself in a world of trouble - real fast - as Paulie learns in this hilarious adventure classic the whole family will treasure. When a little bird with a big personality sets out to find the loving girl who raised him, he discovers his way with words has a way of landing him in big trouble. But as fast as he can talk himself into a fix, he finds his gift of gab, a heart full of hope, and an odd menagerie of human friends can help him realize his most important dream - to be home at last!

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It is something to behold. – Lawrence Van Gelder, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Paulie has moments of minor charm but lacks the magic to fully capture the imaginations of either children or adults. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: A perfect family movie with the intelligence, humor and hug-me moments to be a great first-date movie, too. Just remember to bring a hankie. – Bob Heisler, Los Angeles Times, May 12, 2008

Fresh: Shalhoub gives an impressively nuanced performance in the dangerously cliched role, and Paulie -- a combination of trained parrots, animatronics, and the voice of Mohr -- comes across as a fully developed character. – Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010
