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.

"...stupendous...the best dancing you'll see on the screen this year.  David Edelstein, New York Magazine
"...giddily brilliant entertainment...toe-tapping music.  Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"In the year of the animated movie, this one soars above them all.  Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"...not only the year's best animated movie, it's one of the year's best movies, period.  Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"...a gorgeously rendered marvel...a smart and surprisingly deep story.  Tasha Robinson, The Onion A.V. Club

Editor's Note
Set in the strange and beautiful world first explored in the 2005 documentary MARCH OF THE PENGUINS, George Miller's HAPPY FEET tells the story of Mumble (Elijah Wood), a tone-deaf Emperor Penguin who is unable to sing his "heart song," the ritual required to win a mate (in this case, his beloved Gloria, voiced by Brittany Murphy). The fact that Mumble is a terrific tap dancer is completely lost on his tribe, and he spends a rather lonely adolescence as an outsider. His hero's journey involves both discovering his own innate coolness, and, more importantly, solving the mystery of the dwindling supply of edible fish in the ocean. As the latter plot takes over, the film shifts from a touching story of self-belief, to a more urgent ecological plea, but all the themes converge when Mumble's special talent saves the day.

The film is a triumph of striking CGI animation, with every frame celebrating the vast and breathtaking purity of Antarctica's tundras, snowscapes, icebergs, and waters, as well as its wildlife. The musical numbers--drawing on pop hits of the last 30 years--were choreographed by Savion Glover, and revel in the joyful if slightly limited physicality of the bottom-heavy penguins. While some scary scenes of predation may be too much for very young children, this is an inspiring tale that is suitable for the whole family.

Expert Review Happy Feet - DVD
By: David Bezanson filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 3/16/2007 8:05 PM
So when the 2005 documentary March of the Penguins became a surprise hit and ahem, broke the ice, more penguin movies became a possibility. Luckily, one was already in the works, and even more luckily, Happy Feet is the project of Aussie auteur George Miller (best known for Babe), who does not follow anyone’s lead. It takes only a few seconds -- the time it takes one of the penguins to sing the first verse of Prince’s “Kiss," while another sings "Heartbreak Hotel" -- for Miller’s film to qualify as the weirdest movie of the year....read the full review
Expert Review Happy Feet - DVD Review
By: Rafe Telsch Cinema Blend DVD Reviews

The one thing that helps the movie overcome plot jumps and weak story elements is the rocking soundtrack. Since the story is strongly focused on song and dance, this is one area the film had to excel. I challenge anyone to sit through Happy Feet without tapping their toes or fingers or even getting up to dance around a bit. The rhythms are compelling, the beats hypnotic, and the songs may be familiar oldies, but their arrangements cast them in a new light much the way Moulin Rouge reinvented its songs. ...read the full review

Mumble and other penguins learn how to dance to their heartsounds. Happy Feet, winner of the Academy Award for Best Animated Film in 2007, contains the voice talents of Elijah Wood in the lead role, and other big name actors such as Robin Williams, Hugh Jackman, Brittany Murphy, and Nicole Kidman. It tells the tale of a penguin who marches to the beat of a different drummer, and never looks back....read the full review
Expert Review Happy Feet - DVD Review

Happy Feet is the story of Mumble (Elijah Wood), a young Emperor penguin who stands out from the rest of his brethren. You see, Mumble can't sing, which is a big thing in an animated community centered on the heartsong, the song that each penguin finds inside him- or herself that they use to attract a mate. Mumble's heart is expressed through dance rather than song, and while he can most definitely dance, his lack of an original voice leads to him being ostracized for being different. To top things off, there is a shortage of fish, and Mumble's differences lead him to be blamed for this lack of food and ultimately exiled by the community elders, who are made up of a group of older, straitlaced penguins who have no tolerance for original thought....read the full review

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"The feet in the title of George Miller's new film shuffle and stomp with glorious syncopation..." 11/17/2006 p.E12

Entertainment Weekly
"[A] musically wacky, ecologically activist CG family comedy..." 11/24/2006 p.84

Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "It's MOULIN ROUGE with flippers, the jukebox constantly jumping as tap-happy misfit Mumble tries to find his singing voice." 02/01/2007 p.41

Sight and Sound
"HAPPY FEET is the first Hollywood animated feature that really evokes the feeling of a live-action spectacular throughout its running time....The film is packed with wildly spinning camerawork." 02/01/2007 p.56-57

ReelViews 8 of 10
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. - James Berardinelli

Reel.com 8 of 10
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. - Jim Hemphill
