An curio movie might be cult status in the near future.
Two friends (Voiced by Bob Saget and Lewis Black) are traveling to the
breeding grounds of mating with another male penguins. Which they are
trying to survived in the unbelievably harsh weather of Antarctic.
Which one of the Penguins is searching for love.
Written and Directed by Bob Seget (Dirty Work) made an forgettable if
watchable spoof of the Oscar-Winning Documentary "March of the
Penguins". But the movie is only sporadically funny. The film is only
very amusing when Samuel L. Jackson does the narration and Tracy Morgan
as Marcus have real laughs. Despite many vocal talents, Saget's script
could have been much better.
DVD has an fine anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1) transfer and an
good-Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. DVD has an commentary track by
the director, which is slightly more entertaining than the movie. DVD
also includes two featurettes, deleted scenes with optional commentary
and trailers. This funny idea is ambitious, since Saget used only stock
footage to make the picture. This is certainly a curio movie. Worth a
look, certainly if you are really that curious. (***/*****)..

Seldom hilarity amidst the ridiculously cheap affair
This extremely minimal production yarn might be an embarrassing excuse
for a mockumentery, but is not the completely useless piece of
celluloid trash that some are making it out to be. Keeping in the
stoner-addled tradition of things in fact, one may even squeeze off a
few scatological belly laughs in the otherwise depressingly low-brow,
low budget affair. Apparently it boils down to this: Writer/Director
Bob Saget has a lot of friends in Hollywood. They may not all be on top
of their game, many even out of the limelight for some time, but a
common friend indeed they have with their oft-ridiculed, former
television dork dad.
What Saget gets to exploit out of this is a plethora of B-listers,
which makes for an impressive cast on paper .but do not be fooled. On
top of the disengaging sound quality which reeks of home studio, almost
all of the frequent one line cameos done by celebrities are so
apathetically subdued that one cannot help but think most of these
people are phoning in a favor to an old Hollywood friend, with
absolutely no intention on getting any attention in this project; who
can blame them? Even at 80 minutes, relying on a low grade stash of
penguin stock footage in order to manipulate a crude plot into this
joke must have sounded drastically unappealing to most participants.
Thankfully a few of Saget's crew actually rise to the occasion, that is
to say that they do not let their hubris get in the way of embracing
the full-on stupidity of the project. It is in those low-fi moments of
tasteless class that a few voice actors and the rancid production
actually get to shine in it's context. Samuel L. Jackson, as the
narrator was an excellent choice, although even his central dialog
feels like his head is somewhere else (to the scripts credit, they
actually throw in a joke to echo this sentiment). The only other voice
actors that make an earnest contribution to this goof are Lewis Black
(who thankfully had a large role) and Tracey Morgan, making all other
voice actors seem completely indifferent. For the few genuinely
hilarious moments that reached further then this trite March of the
Penguins farce, I am unexpectedly happy for, but for a majority of
screen time, viewers need either be indulging their chemical
dependencies, or mocking aloud with friends in order to receive
anything special out of this shell of a movie..
