Great movie!!!!

I think it’s a amazing movie your whole family will enjoy. Plus if you want to learn Spanish since Hispanics/Latinos will no longer be a minority soon. It’s a good way to learn.

Is It Any Good?

If you're a fan of the Huevoscartoon franchise -- which includes both shorts and previous feature films -- then this well-animated movie will bring you back to familiar ground and familiar characters. But if you're new to the series, the humor may leave you feeling confused. Talking eggs -- some of which appear outfitted as children, and some that strangely look and act adult despite being unborn chickens -- and sentient bacon may remind some viewers of a fever dream. And if you're not well-versed in Spanish slang, particularly the fact that "huevos" is used in puns about male genitalia, you'll miss more of the jokes.

The risqué nature of those references also makes the film's tone a bit tricky to figure out. It's not clear whether the Huevoscartoon universe was created primarily to make body puns or to entertain children. That said, the film is well made, and its themes about togetherness, perseverance, and teamwork, even a mild critique about humanity's overconsumption, come through. It's a quirky film, but if your humor aligns with a bit of oddity, it might be up your alley.
