The Angry Birds Movie.

Agreeability gets you so far in life, but when the chips are down, it sometimes helps to lose your temper. That's a pretty unexpected moral takeaway for a kids' movie, and it's just one surprise of many in "The Angry Birds Movie," a fast, fizzy, and frenetically entertaining extension of the manic gaming franchise that, at its zenith, had children of all ages glued to their smart-phone screens. Brightly accessible even to viewers who have never so much as tapped the app, this irreverent, daffy origin story could easily establish a big-screen franchise of its Own.
