Children's film with last minute dose of political correctness
All in all, the film was technically well done. The characters were
cute. The music was superb. The dialog between characters was good.
I was not that impressed by the "happy feet" dancing. Animated figures
dancing...haven't seen that since Mickey Mouse in "Steamboat Willey
(1928)" or classic Bugs Bunny cartoons (30's & 40's).
What was disappointing was the overall plot of this movie. There were
so many ways to go to make this an excellent children's movie based on
the interaction of the characters, e.g. "Babe", "Toys" or "Ice Age".
Instead dark "aliens" were created. While I won't give away the ending,
the film's conclusion was wrapped up in a flash forward mode with a
heavy dose of political correctness that made it feel bolted on. It was
obvious that the makers were searching for a story conclusion when
there was none.
All in all, the first 2/3 of the movie were good entertainment. I would
take any child to it. The last 1/3 needs to be totally reworked into an
ending that matches the rest of the movie. I would have reservations
about taking a child to the last 1/3 of the movie..

Excellent film - we loved it!.
Not as Hapy as I thought it would be.
Overall, I was disappointed with "Happy Feet", as were my 6 and 9 year
They thought it was too intense in parts,particularly at the end. I
thought it was boring.It was definitely too long for very little ones,
as I witnessed in the theater.
On the plus side, the computer animation was TOP NOTCH. There were
sequences that were so breathtaking, you would swear you were looking
at the real thing! Ditto for the music. It was clearly the best part of
Dialogue was hard to hear in parts. The plot was thin, and quite
implausible toward the end. It sort of does an "Al Gore" at the end
also, which for me was a total turn off.I wanted to be entertained, not
spoon-fed more environmentalist propaganda. (This was also what
bothered my kids.)
And, the biggest disappointment of all, it just wasn't all that funny,
or happy!! I thought the title and the trailers, were very misleading.
Overall, it was good looking, and good sounding, but preachy and
