* {{Applicability}}: Ginger's RousingSpeech has been interpreted by libertarians as a metaphor for how states are like farmers and it's citizens are treated like livestock. Others have read it as inherently Marxist, that the chickens are the proletarians to the Tweedy's bourgeoisie, if not a direct criticism on [[CapitalismIsBad the inhumanities of capitalism]] -- the chickens are being led to their deaths in the name of minuscule profits, after all.

* EndingFatigue: There are three separate climaxes. It becomes a bit tiresome by the middle of the second.


** Following their triumph with the ''WesternAnimation/{{Antz}}'' score, John Powell and Harry Gregson-Williams made this score, possibly the best score to ever feature a ''kazoo''. Seriously, ''Chicken Run's'' OST is one of the most memorable, entertaining and at times epic music you've ever heard in an animated feature, and deserves a listen ''alone'' even if you should never watch the film! Take [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_Hl9Vune6A Main Titles]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apsrbm_PJa8 Building the Crate]] for example.

* SpecialEffectFailure: As noted above, the top of [[spoiler:Ginger]]'s head can still be seen after Mrs. Tweety attempts to decapitate it, making it obvious that it, well, wasn't. [[NightmareFuel Unless one interprets it as bloody bits from a messy cut...]]

** The claymation is practically seamless throughout the film, though there is one particular instance, when Ginger is on the roof mourning the death of Edwina before noticing birds above her where the animation of her "eyebrows" briefly becomes very jittery.

Added DiffLines:

* GutPunch: Edwina's death (complete with her ''bones'' on a dinner table right after), drives home the point that Mrs. Tweedy (and the film) aren't fooling around.

Added DiffLines:

** Was Mrs. Tweedy truly evil? Or was she just running an honest business and took a little too much pleasure in keeping her chickens in line, but otherwise was just doing what was necessary to supply the populace with eggs, like all other factory farms?
