Happy but weak on story.

on 4/24/2007

Penguins are cute anyway but Happy Feet gives them personality too. My 7 year old loved the music and dancing as well as the voices of the penguin characters but for him, the storyline was not that engaging. He did appreciate what an Emperor Penguin has to go through just to have and keep alive a baby penguin. The environmental message was there but not very strong and a bit too elusive for a 7 year old. All in all, we enjoyed the film largely due to the music and wonderful animation.

Product Overview

In the cold land of antarctica, the emperor penguins each express their true love with a special heartsong of their own that expresses their very being. Hosever, the misfit mumble cannot sing, but instead has an extraordinary talent to tap dance with almost magical energy and expression.

Review Happy Feet is a weird movie. No one can accuse director George Miller and his co-writers of playing it safe, but there are some genres - such as family-friendly animation - where adherence to conventions can be viewed as a positive trait. 75 minutes into the 105-minute movie, I thought I was watching the first great animated film since The Incredibles. The final half-hour disabused me of that notion. Taken in total, Happy Feet contains enough solid entertainment to be worth the price of admission, but the production's last act self-inflicted wounds do irreparable damage to what is an otherwise fine motion picture...It's fair to note that many of the elements that bothered me about the film aren't going to be noticed by the under-10 target audience, and there are plenty of things sprinkled throughout for adults to enjoy.

Review Who would have thought that the director of the violent revenge flick Mad Max would go on to create some of the most charming children's films since Walt Disney? After co-writing and producing the delightful Babe and directing its equally inventive sequel, Australian filmmaker George Miller has entered the world of computer animation with his latest fantasy, the odd but endearing musical Happy Feet. While the film lacks Babe's emotional depth and might not appeal to older viewers in the same way, its vibrant digital images and overall good cheer are enough to recommend it...Like Disney and Steven Spielberg before him, Miller clearly loves children and knows what entertains them, and his affection for both his audience and the filmmaking process is infectious.
