Movie Info

Animal Planet aesthetics get infused with blush-inducing blue-humor sensibilities as director Bob Saget teams with an all-star cast of comics including Lewis Black, Tracy Morgan, Jason Alexander, Dane Cook, and Whoopi Goldberg to prove that sometimes penguins aren't as sweet as they appear to be on the silver screen. Film star Samuel L. Jackson narrates as actual footage of penguins going about their business in nature is backed by the kind of twisted voice-over work that could only come from the biggest names in comedy.

A gimmick that might have sustained a screamingly funny 10-minute segment on a pay-cable variety show is remorselessly stretched to feature length.

The idea would have worked better as a 7 minute sketch comedy on YouTube

Urban Cinefile

A one-liner stretched to feature length which is a little low on genuine wit to carry it off.

Could have been HILARIOUS...but was just mildly amusing.

Gosh, this was bad. Barely watchable. It was duller than "March of the Penguins"! The jokes were trashy and not very funny. The Penguin's mouths did not move when they talked. It seemed like a quick cash-in for those who loved "March"...
