I really appreciated that this movie was as adorable as it was. If you
are looking for a movie that will make you want to laugh and cry, and
will definitely have you thinking (about taking dance lessons & about
the world as it is now) then this is the movie for you. While the movie
has some dark turns, it tackles the environmental issues that the whole
world is being confronted with in a way that is neither overbearing,
nor too old for children. Not only did this movie make me want a
penguin of my own, but it made me want to help our world stop over
producing, and start preserving. More importantly, if you want to take
kids to see this movie, its perfect. There's a good chance they will be
waddling like a penguin for a week!.

Just as some films can take a wrong turn early on and lose an audience,
with only a miracle able to prompt a recovery, so some can grab you
from the start and never let go. After about three minutes on screen, I
was hopelessly in love with Happy Feet and it would have taken a
disastrous collapse to change that. Thankfully, that collapse never
comes and the film only gets better the longer it goes on. Without even
accounting for the fact that it's been a pretty weak year for animated
fare, Happy Feet is a balls-out masterpiece, easily and instantly one
of the best non-Disney/Pixar American animated films ever made. It's
Planet Earth narrated by way of Moulin Rouge instead of David
The theory goes that each penguin has its own individual "heartsong"
which it needs to find a mate. Young Mumble (voiced by Daily when he's
tickle and oh so cute, then Wood when he gets a bit older) is born with
the worst singing voice in the penguin world, which can make for a
pretty tough ride when your parents sound like Marilyn Monroe and
Elvis. Compensation for this comes in the form of his love of dancing
via his nonstop "happy feet". His mother (Kidman) is supportive but his
dad (Jackman) is embarrassed by the whole affair ("It just ain't
penguin son"). Marked as a disruptive influence by the elders
(including Weaving doing a pretty damn good Scottish accent) and even
blamed for the dwindling fish stocks, he's ostracised from the
community and takes up with a group of Hispanic penguins on a quest to
discover why the fish are disappearing.
There's nothing about Happy Feet that doesn't work, with every element
just another layer of delicious icing on the cake. At its heart it's
one of the most glorious celebrations of individuality, diversification
and acceptance ever committed to film. But then it gets wrapped in a
blanket of breathtaking visuals and a level of artistry that's almost
photo-real in its beauty. The voice work is exemplary (Robin Williams
does three different characters and doesn't annoy) and it will either
have you laughing or on the verge of tears throughout. Then, just when
you think it can't fit anything else in, we get a sharp eco-message.
And if that's all a little too preachy and worthy for you, then just
revel in the sight of tens of thousands of penguins bursting into pop
and soul classics every five minutes. Sublime..
