Buy it... if you enjoy John Debney's parody work with a full orchestra and are willing to tolerate several atrocious songs to get 15 minutes of it.

Avoid it... if David Arnold's Independence Day is sacred to you and Debney's several blatant, shameless rip-offs of that score would deeply disturb you.

Chicken Little: (John Debney) Hopefully everyone who ventures to see this newest Walt Disney 3D animated adventure will remember what got Chicken Little into trouble in the first place. Having created havoc in the original fable by mistaking a falling acorn for a falling sky, our little hero opens this film appearance as the troublemaker who's trying hard to redeem his reputation in his small town. He succeeds in doing it, too, by winning a big baseball game with a home run. Unfortunately, he also discovers that something a little more ominous is falling out of the sky, and while at first cautious about who he tells about his revelation, he eventually organizes a team of misfits who will endeavor to save the world from alien invaders. In the Shrek era of slapstick comedy, it's no surprise that the soundtrack to Chicken Little is an odd combination of old songs relevant to chickens, the end of the world, or victorious parties, as well as ensemble cast songs and original underscore. The songs are the kind of Patti LaBelle, Diana Ross, and R.E.M. combination that was a little lighter on the reuse fees for Disney and will likely succeed only to the extent of the film's run in the theatres (does Diana Ross help sell albums on her own merits anymore?). The songs performed by the ensemble cast are as atrocious as anyone might imagine. No offense to these performers, but to hear them perform "We Are the Champions," a Spice Girls song, and other stuff is by no means pleasant to the ears. Then again, if anybody's just itching to hear Joan Cusack and Patrick Stewart belt out a pop song with a bunch of other barnyard animals, then this might be your dream come true.
