Movie Info

In the world of the emperor penguin, a simple song can mean the difference between a lifetime of happiness and an eternity of loneliness. When a penguin named Mumble is born without the ability to sing the romantic song that will attract his soul mate, he'll have to resort to some fancy footwork by tap dancing his way into the heart of the one he loves. Directed by Babe mastermind George Miller, Happy Feet tells the tale of one penguin's quest for love, and features an all-star cast of vocal talent that includes Robin Williams, Hugh Jackman, Elijah Wood, Nicole Kidman, and Brittany Murphy. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

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.

Audience Reviews for Happy Feet

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

Matthew Samuel Mirliani

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.
