I didn't like this movie. It was annoying. Our main character Reggie (the 'smart one'), tells all his turkey family that they are being fattened up TO BE KILLED. The other turkeys don't believe him and set him to the side where he is an outcast. Then Thanksgiving comes and all of a sudden the turkeys become sane. Despite the fact that Reggie warned them, he is there sacrifice. (Maybe because he's purple? That's kinda racist.) The president's little girl finds Reggie and throws a fit for him to be the 'pardon turkey'. (Maybe because he's purple? That's kinda racist.) Anyway kids, when you have a tantrum, know that the turkey will always be your's :)
After a pointless montage of him watching TV and eating pizza we finally get to the plot. He is kidnapped by Jake. Jake was told by the 'Great Turkey' that he has a great destiny and will save turkeys from the dreaded holiday, Thanksgiving. They time travel all the way to the first Thanksgiving and meet Jenny (Reggie's love interest) & her brother What's-it's-face (forgot his name). They are dressed in Native American headdresses and face paint. (That's kinda racist.)
Well they are there we have to survive the characters of this movie that probably took 5 minutes for the writers to come up with. OH THE PAIN! Then bam! Reggie and Jake go get fire crackers and explode the darn shack full of weapons that the humans keep to hunt the turkey, deer, and whatever other animals they ate back then. BUT they are stupid, and leave a trail of ash right into the turkey's shelter.
Reggie gets very angry at himself, and gives up, and goes home to his old house where he would eat pizza and watch TV. About half a dozen Reggies come to tell him that he himself is the 'Great Turkey'. He goes back into the past and sees the humans surround their shelter and watches it burn in flames. He goes inside looking for Jenny, and finds her looking for a way to get to her siblings/turkey tribe. Jake saves the baby turkeys from being burnt, and they reach safety thanks to their leader, The Chief who dies saving them.
Reggie visits the present, gets all the pizza he can, takes it to the past, and gives it to the humans to eat instead of turkey. They are safe and the movie ends with Reggie staying in the past with Jenny and her tribe.
