I had wanted to like HAPPY FEET more -- I went in expecting a more lighthearted piece. While Miller is to be commended for adding layers to the story, I do feel it went on way too long and that its points were hammered home. And I'm well aware I will be

The computer-animated Happy Feet gets even weirder with a late-in-the-game development that is meant to be upsetting and is.

... Happy Feet isn't as nimble as its toe-tapping hero and stumbles over its plodding plotting.

Happy Feet dances up a storm, but instead of smiles, Miller's cloudy creation will surely elicit blank stares from duped parents and head-spinning confusion from little kids.

This curious ecological parable was directed by George Miller (Babe: Pig in the City), who still has an eye and a sense of humor but on this particular outing can't get the script he wrote with three others to make much sense.

Boring. And annoying. And too long. But mostly boring.

I'm surprised they didn't end it with the whole world holding hands and singing "Kumbayah" while the penguins tap-danced in unison with Al Gore.

Here's something I never thought I'd say: There's simply too much singing and dancing in this animated penguin movie.

It was sold to us as a cute movie with cuddly dancing and singing penguins, but becomes a life or death battle with a storyline that could have been written by Al Gore.

There are dozens of charming moments, but the story is simply too thin to carry the movie's 87-minute running time.

Movie Metropolis doubt the movie will entertain and enlighten children. Children of all ages may be another matter.

The movie is fun for a while, then you might be tempted to dance right out of the theatre. It's a little too preachy to be all happy.

Even the wee ones may start to notice something's amiss when the movie's theme goes from "be yourself" to 'we must regulate the overfishing of the Antarctic oceans.' No, for real.

Happy Feet certainly has elements that work -- the stunning animation as well as many of the musical numbers, even if they are overused -- but taken as a whole it isn't that happy after all.

The movie's flat-footed nature means it's unlikely to put a spring in the step of anyone over the age of 10.

There's nothing saying that entertainment for kids can't be substantive, but the film's hard sell against belief in the supernatural and for ecological care are simple-minded and preachy.

Just because audiences went like lemmings to March of the Penguins, it doesn't mean they'll make tracks to see a funky and furry cartoon version.
