Happy Feet Two (2011) - Rotten Tomatoes

Happy Feet Two (2011)



Critic Consensus: The animation is as eye-popping as ever, but Happy Feet Two's narrative is too noisily incoherent to recapture the Oscar-winning charm of its predecessor.

Movie Info

Happy Feet Two returns audiences to the magnificent landscape of Antarctica in superb 3D. Mumble, The Master of Tap, has a problem because his tiny son, Erik, is choreo-phobic. Reluctant to dance, Erik runs away and encounters The Mighty Sven-a penguin who can fly! Mumble has no hope of competing with this charismatic new role model. But things get worse when the world is shaken by powerful forces. Erik learns of his father's "guts and grit" as Mumble brings together the penguin nations and all manner of fabulous creatures-from tiny Krill to giant Elephant Seals-to put things right. -- (C) Warner Brosmore

It shares more in common with the brash lunacy of Rango than the safe, flat work of Arthur Christmas despite the similarly chilly locals of the latter.

Happy Feet Two is a fun uplifting family flick that accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do.

"Happy Feet Two" is to 2006's "Happy Feet" what "Babe: Pig in the City" was to "Babe," a clever and adorable original film remade with most of the charm wrung out of it.

The film might be too chaotic for some audiences, but for those willing to sit back and enjoy the rapid-fire ride, Happy Feet Two will bring a smile to your face.

Audience Reviews for Happy Feet Two


The laughter from its splendid supporting cast (Williams, Pitt, Damon) hard to miss, no doubt, but Happy Feet Two lacks the magic it's Oscar-winning predecessor had all due to its inconsistent story and cheesy references. The film still produces a pulse-pound beat and sound, just not as strong as the first. 3.5/5

They should have stuck with one...

Every step counts.

Not great but not bad either. Not much different from the first. It had penguins. All kinds of penguins. They all danced around and sang a bunch of hit singles. Only this time there is the whole Global Warming undertone. In short, I wish I could love this movie. But... There's too much of too little. I need more than just cute penguins, though. I need enjoyability to go with it. And while this film isn't bad at all, I can't recommend it except only for kids.

Mumble the penguin has a problem: his son Erik, who is reluctant to dance, encounters The Mighty Sven, a penguin who can fly! Things get worse for Mumble when the world is shaken by powerful forces, causing him to brings together the penguin nations and their allies to set things right.
