A talking parrot named Paulie narrates this tale about his best friend, a young girl who has difficulty learning to speak. When a therapist is brought in to work with the girl, she also ends up teaching Paulie, a bird with verbal and comprehension skills unlike any other of his kind.
After the girl and her parrot are separated, Paulie begins an extraordinary adventure in the strange and wonderful world of humans, as he follows a 25-year quest to be reunited with his best friend.
love it - funny, moving, sad, just brilliant
the greatest EVER!!! they should have a SECOND movie
RECOMMEND this movie to everyone, and a MUST SEE for all bird lovers. I have a blue-crowned conure myself, and he is the joy of our home, he is just the sweetest bird ever. That being said, I am actually against the sale of exotic birds in pet stores, because just like the movie Paulie shows, more often than not, these beautiful intelligent, vibrant birds are neglected or abused. Paulie was such an awesome movie to see, much better than the violent, sex-filled movies that Hollywood usually produces.
