Synopsis


Happy Feet
In the world of the emperor penguin, a simple song can mean the difference between a lifetime of happiness and an eternity of loneliness. When a penguin named Mumble is born without the ability to sing the romantic song that will attract his soul mate, he'll have to resort to some fancy footwork by tap dancing his way into the heart of the one he loves. Directed by Babe mastermind George Miller, Happy Feet tells the tale of one penguin's quest for love, and features an all-star cast of vocal talent that includes Robin Williams, Hugh Jackman, Elijah Wood, Nicole Kidman, and Brittany Murphy. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Feel Good Movie For The Whole Family

    I bought this for my girlfriend for Valentine's Day, along with Surf's Up & March Of The Penguins (what? she likes penguins!). I figured a penguin 3-pack would make a great gift- I was right! ----- Happy Feet is a very cute, very funny movie that does not fail to impress! From the moment the movie starts, you'll be taken in by the incredible visuals and spot-on voice acting, not to mention the music selection! Happy Feet is just one of those movies that BEGS to be watched in surround sound! You can't help but get into almost every song these musical penguins sing and in Mumble's case, dance to! Each actor voices their character perfectly- I especially enjoyed Jackman's approach! The only complaint I have is Williams' dual-voice role. The two characters he voiced were so similar they are easily confused if you just happen to be up getting a drink during their interaction (which I was). Other than that, I loved this movie and so did she! From the jokes to the action, and the feel-good emotion all around- this movie is great for all ages and one that the whole family will enjoy!

    Happy Feet is a wonderful movie filled with songs and good messages. It's about a penguin that is different from all the rest and how he makes a difference while being true to himself. It's filled with about three different species of penguin and ultimately sends out a message about conservation and preservation. It is filled with memorable and often funny and entertaining characters. It's characters are voiced by many great actors and actresses like Robin Williams, Elijah Wood, Brittany Murphy, Nicole Kidman, and Hugh Jackman. "This is a must-see movie fit for all ages alike!!!"

    This review is an interview with my young son. It is Excellent. A story about a young penguin who grows up to dance to bring awareness to pollution in the ocean. My children have watched it several times. I suspect that it will be watched a few more times. We have several "road-trip" special movies. This is one in the rotation for this past year. They seem to really enjoy the story and the bits of it that I've caught appear to be really cute. If you child is between four and ten, he/she should enjoy it very much and understand much of the story.

    Happy Feet is a great animated film. Both adults and Children can enjoy it. I believe the most rewarding part of the movie, is the climatic ending, which will leave all audience members very happy. The only downside to Happy Feet is that sometimes it may become a little slow paced for adults, but overall a very good film.

    Happy Feet is a movie that is great for all ages and audiences. Whether you are a conservationist, tap dancer, singer, parent, or inquisitive child, you will enjoy this film. The music is upbeat, the story is heart-warming, the characters are adorable, the technology is great, and the voices of the actors are honest to the characters.

    I purchased this DVD for an Elementary School Teacher who's class mascot is the Penguin. The children loved the movie, which the teacher plans to show again and again, year after year as a special occasion treat for the students. I would definitely recommend this DVD to anyone with young children.

    Weird Movie

    I know this movie was made for children, but this film has to have one of the strangest premises. The movie is about penguins that sing to attract a mate, there is one penguin that can't sing so he dances, and in the end when the penguin's fish go missing they dance to get them back. STRANGE!

    This charming film is often sold at the holidays, but it's sure to bring children of all ages (2 to 99) joy throughout the year. This is a safe film to show at any gathering. You will love adding it to your home collection.
