Chicken Little (2005) is an animated fantasy co-written and directed by Mark Dindal about the difficulties undersized Chicken Little (Zach Braff) experiences when it looks like the sky is falling, but his father, Buck Cluck (Garry Marshall), and most of the community do not believe him.
“When all other means of communication fail, try words.”
Chicken Little: “You’re never there for me!”
Buck Cluck: “What?”
Chicken Little: “You’re never there for me. I mean you were when I won the big game, but not when I thought the sky fell, and not at the ball field, and certainly not now! You’ve been ashamed of me ever since the acorn thing happened and we have to talk about it because Modern Mallard says avoiding closure can lead to molting. And I’m already small, and on top of that I don’t think I could handle being bald!”
Buck Cluck: “I.. I.. I didn’t realize, son. I never meant to.. The acorn, the sky, I mean the whole.. You’re right. You’re right. Your mom, she was, you know, she was always good with stuff like this. Me, I’m gonna need a lot of work. But you need to know that I love you, no matter what. And I’m sorry. And I’m sorry if I ever made you feel like that was something you had to earn.”
