Into the world of the Emperor Penguins, who find their soul mates through song, a penguin is born who cannot sing. But he can tap dance something fierce!
I haven’t made it a secret how much I love Emperor penguins; and ‘Happy Feet’ made me love them all the more. Imagine a penguin chick tapdancing; all fat and round and fluffy and tapdancing!
The movie tries for an environmentalist twist; but it falls a bit short because all it points out is that there’s too much fishing going on in the Antarctic and the penguins are starving because of it. Still and all, it was a good effort (kahit medyo pilit) because the children in the audience at least learned that ‘it’s wrong to throw garbage in the sea’ and ‘big ships catch too many fish that’s meant for penguins.’ In the documentary ‘March of the Penguins,’ it was pointed out that one of the biggest threats to the survival of Emperors and other species living in the poles is global warming and pollution.
I have a mug with a design of five penguins trying to rollerskate. It’s 10 years old and it’s my favorite mug ever.
This is one of the few good animated movies that i have seen in a long time. its the kind of movie that children will enjoy and also parents. its got catchy music top notch animation and a good story it is also filled with humurous and serious parts but not to serious to take away from the movie.
