Birds of Paradise - DVD Review and Giveaway

I received DVD for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

Why hide in a crowd when you were born to stand out with the high-flying adventure Birds of Paradise, arriving on DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet) April 1 exclusively at Walmart and Redbox from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The film is available on Digital HD, Video On Demand and Pay-Per-View everywhere. Awarded the DOVE seal of approval, this family-friendly adventure proves you shouldn't judge a birdby their feathers and features the voices of a talented cast including Drake Bell (TV's "Drake & Josh), Ashley Tisdale (TV's "High School Musical"), Ken Jeong (Despicable Me 2), Jane Lynch (TV's "Glee"), Jon Lovitz (The Benchwarmers), Keith David (Free Birds) and Dallas Lovato (Snowflake And The White Gorilla).

When Jack, an ordinary sparrow with dreams of becoming an extraordinary bird, is accidently covered in colorful paint, he is thrilled about his new exotic appearance and believes that he'll now be able to impress Aurora, a beautiful canary who has recently escaped from her indoor cage. But when Aurora's mean owner, Mr. Potter, finds her, Jack must enlist the help of his best friends - Vinnie, the loyal pigeon and Skeeter, the hyper hummingbird as well as Rosie, the caring bat and the wise Old Buzzard in order to free her. And along the way, Jack and Aurora will learn that it's not what you look like on the outside, but who you are on the inside that truly counts.
Timed to the theatrical release of Rio 2, the Birds of Paradise DVD features all-new bonus material including a look behind the scenes of the voice recording sessions and a sneak peek at award-winning animated Minisculeshorts. The Birds of Paradise DVD is available exclusively at Walmart for the suggested retail price of $19.98.

My Review:

Not quite up to par with Rio 2 but still a cute family film nonetheless, Birds of Paradise features Jack, a sparrow (notice the Pirates of the Caribbean irony there?!) who is an ordinary bird but learns through distress and fortitude that its his character, rather than looks, that really counts. With an array of amusing bird species, Birds of Paradise is an delightful film for children.

Win It!

One person will win Birds of Paradise  on DVD.

I love to watch the humming birds to to drink out of the feeder. Thanks

My favorite is the good old Crow. They are very intelligent, recognize faces and can use tools. They are also one of the few birds that has a voice box and can be taught to talk like a Myna Bird!
