I'm no fan of newer movies, but this one was a real pleasure to watch.Adults and children could watch it together - how unusual! My aunt likedit,too. It had laughter, tears, love, adventure, special effects, goodactors -and a talking parrot. It reminded me of a favourite, The Wizard of Oz.Thehero, Paulie, an intelligent parrot, is separated from his home andfamilyand goes through many adventures, temptations and disappointments, alwayskeeping in mind his resolution to find his friend, Marie. Highlyrecommended.

Something about "Paulie" touched my heart as few movies do. It is awitty, funny yet emotional movie. I'm a late comer in becoming a fan ofthis movie. I didn't see "Paulie" until May, 2004 and have sinceordered the Widescreen DVD from a seller at eBay.
The special effects of showing Paulie talking are superb. My son askedme how the bird knew so many phrases.Probably my favorite part of themovie is when Paulie is in Gena Rowlands (Ivy's) company followed byCheech Marin (Ignacio). Tony Shalhoub (Misha) plays an excellent partas the good hearted human. You root for him all the way through themovie.
You can't go wrong renting or buying this movie!!
Some people might call "Paulie" a kids' movie, but I wish to assertthat it's more than that. Probably more than anything else, this moviesuccessfully goes to great lengths to show the plight of immigrants inthe United States - topical given the recent debates. Portraying aparrot telling a Russian immigrant janitor (Tony Shalhoub) of how hesearched America for his original owners, the movie tells severalstories. There's the elderly woman (Gena Rowlands) whom he befriends,then a Mexican immigrant (Cheech Marin), and others.
All in all, it's a very well done movie. I usually don't expect muchfrom these sorts of movies, but this one is a treat. I certainlyrecommend it. Also starring Jay Mohr, Buddy Hackett, Bruce Davison,Hallie Eisenberg and Trini Alvarado.
