Paulie is a 1998 American adventure fantasy comedy film about a disobedient talking parrot named Paulie, starring Tony Shalhoub, Cheech Marin, Gena Rowlands, Hallie Eisenberg, and Jay Mohr. Mohr performs both the voice of Paulie and the on-screen supporting role of Benny, a character who has a lot of dialogue with Paulie. It received mixed to positive reviews and was a box office disappointment, grossing $26.9 million domestically against a $23 million budget.


The film is a picaresque tale about an intelligent talking blue-crowned conure named Paulie (voice of Jay Mohr), and his long quest to return to his owner.
