** Also, Mrs. Tweedy has made it VERY clear what her motivation is: being sick & tired of making minuscule profits.

** Did Mr. Tweedy [[spoiler: drop the door on Mrs. Tweedy]] by accident? [[TheDogBitesBack Or was he finally tired of the abuse she constantly put him through and did it deliberately]]? [[WhatCouldHaveBeen This was the case in an early cut of the film]], and it's not helped by how awkwardly the scene was edited.
* AnimationAgeGhetto: ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun'' is a semi-mature film, but was billed as a children's film. According to TheOtherWiki, the producers attempted to avert this by dropping a character from the early scripts named Nobby (who was supposed to be Ginger's little brother, and thus the KidAppealCharacter) in order to avoid being excessively cute.

* SpiritualLicensee: The premise revolves around a prison-like meat farm that cruelly mistreats its workers on the verge of bankruptcy, so the head of the business resorts to selling the workers as food, leading to an escape. This sounds like ''VideoGame/{{Oddworld}}: Abe's Oddysee,'' doesn't it?
* SuperlativeDubbing: The Norwegian dub used a hilarious cast of women giving nearly all the chickens different dialects and accents. Perhaps it's the 'style' of the original dub to have the chickens speak in a calm and low manner, but the Norwegian cast seemed to give a lot more emotion to every line and they clearly had a blast dubbing it.
* UnfortunateCharacterDesign: The chickens' bodies consist of two bulbous hips and cylindrical torsos. If you only look at their bodies from the shoulders down, they look like, well, let's just say, [[IncrediblyLamePun a cock]]. Even the female ones.

** Is Rocky a {{Jerkass}} [[spoiler: who lead the girls on false promises and turned their backs on them only to have a sudden attack of conscience that prompts him to return]], or is he a sympathetic man (or rooster) who was put into this situation by a goal driven chicken who would stop at nothing to get what she wants, and gets treated like a Jerkass even though he technically, never lied in the first place.
** Edwina. Did she not tell anyone because she didn't want them to worry about her, or did she do it deliberately because she ''wanted'' to die?

* {{Woolseyism}}: In the original version, when Mac speaks to Rocky for the first time, he asks "Was that English?" to reference her heavy Scottish accent. In the Swedish dub, he instead asks "Was that Norwegian?" when she speak heavily in an East Gothland accent. The joke is that while Swedish and Norwegian are vastly different, if you speak slow enough, both parties can understand each other.
