A shambles that's somehow both terribly lazy and hernia-inducingly overcranked at the same time. Disappointing.

"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.

For me, "Happy Feet Two" is pretty thin soup.

If it weren't for the comic relief provided by Will and Bill, tiny shrimplike crustaceans known as krill and voiced by Brad Pitt and Matt Damon, this would be a forbidding return to Antarctica indeed.

This one is as stupid as it looks, which is saying something.

It's a film that only deals in excess, so unless you're a deliriously happy person with a serious foot fetish, you'd best give Happy Feet Two a miss.

Preaches acceptance but requires assimilation. You dance or you die. Join the party, swim with the swarm.

The show-tune-warbling penguins of "Happy Feet" are endangered by climate change in "Happy Feet Two." While I'm rooting for the survival of every creature, I wouldn't mind seeing this movie series become extinct.

Effectively, it's a few computer-generated birds staring into the abyss for an hour and a half. I know exactly how they felt.

Despite some amazing animation and cool song mash-ups, this flat-footed follow-up is as messy and overcrowded as, well, an island packed with poopy penguins.

...doesn't even know how to play to its own strengths.

Mumble is grown up. He has a son Eric. The boy is convinced he can fly. If only his movie could fly.

Other than commercially, more is less in this antic, not so funny sequel to the 2006 blockbuster.

Like father, like son; like Disney, like everyone else. And like first movie, like sequel.

If Happy Feet was tonally unsteady, Happy Feet Two is tone-deaf.

A whirlwind of activity and energy, very little of which makes sense and none of which coheres.

Happy Feet was one of the greatest and most original animated films, but the sequel can't even decide what it's about for the first 40 minutes.

While the film's 3D animation is pretty enough to look at in its large scale aspect, it does little to distract from a meandering story with very little substance.

Has absolutely everything except the light touch required for unaffected charm -- the mugging is savage -- a single piece of memorable original music, or a production number that's celebratory rather than trampling.
