Ultra-cute kid flick has a few scary, emotional moments.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Parables about xenophobia, tolerance, religion and ecological responsibility are played to cuddly conclusions. Balletic underwater sequences and a jukebox-musical soundtrack spanning Chicago to Grandmaster Flash are spoonfuls of sugar for the medicine.

George Miller's jubilant, eccentric film makes its CGI penguins vibrant, expressive, even cosmic
September 10, 2008
The perfect film for audiences who found fault with March of the Penguins because it was too emotionally taxing and you couldn't dance to it.

Puts heart and soul back into the good old computer animated, talking animals family film.

Unfortunately, once the eye candy is firmly established, there's a story here that drags and drags. Then it takes a bit of a leap before it drags some more.

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.

Stands at the very top of the 2006 animated kid's film class.

It's almost impossible to hate. It's not impossible to get a little bored, but that's another tune.

...no doubt the movie will entertain and enlighten children. Children of all ages may be another matter.

If this isn't the last word in animated penguin movies, it's certainly the penguin-ultimate.

"Happy Feet" clinches the current trend of animated message films that speak for the plight of animals and the ecology.

Awkward but graceful, derivative but daring, Happy Feet is, indeed, a flightless bird in the best and worst sense.

January 31, 2007
Feels like the story was written around the concept of a penguin who cannot sing, only dance. When the story is not king, generally the big picture suffers, and Happy Feet reaffirms that adage.

Offers a sucrose-enriched upgrade to the documentary March of the Penguins.

January 13, 2007
despite... shortcomings, "Happy Feet" brings a lot of energy and creativity to a genre that increasingly relies on slapstick and over-stimulation.

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

Thank God those penguins can dance just like humans, eh? It means they deserve to live!

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.
