You should see Happy Feet -- not only because it's stupendous, but also because it features the best dancing you'll see on the screen this year.

Awkward but graceful, derivative but daring, Happy Feet is, indeed, a flightless bird in the best and worst sense.

Director George 'Babe' Miller has pulled off a coup with this one; he's raised the benchmark to a whole new level, both visually and conceptually. Bravo.

Ultra-cute kid flick has a few scary, emotional moments.

Audience Reviews for Happy Feet

It's an animated film that though it tries hard, it is difficult to like or enjoy it.

Good animation about penguins. Penguins sing to attract their soul mate but Mumbles can't sing so he tap dances. Famous voices - Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Hugh Jackman.
