Paulie, a 1998 family film starring Jay Mohr, Gena Rowlands, Tony Shalhoub, and Cheech Marin, follows the tale of the talking parrot named Paulie. Paulie learns to truly communicate just like humans do as a young parrot under the care of the Alweather family. Marie Alweather, the young girl who cares for the parrot, undergoes speech therapy, which Paulie participates in and learns from. Eventually separated from his beloved Marie, Paulie embarks on a journey unlike any other, across many states and in the care of multiple characters. Finding himself an unwilling subject in an animal testing lab, Paulie recounts his long tale to a Russian janitor. After hearing the parrot’s humorous and heartwarming story, the janitor aids him in his pursuit. Winning the BAFTA Childrens Award for Best Childrens Feature Film, this movie details the long enduring friendship that humans and animals can have, and offers wit and comedy throughout. Moving and a little bit kooky, this parrot's tale provides a unique, bird-like take on the world.
