Ultra-cute kid flick has a few scary, emotional moments.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Probably the weirdest children's movie of the year -- this is slightly too long but it's beautifully made, superbly acted and a lot of fun.

Small kids will love the waddlesome dancing and colourful animation, but older viewers will likely be disturbed by the story's darker elements.

For a children's film, it hits all the major notes.

It's going to take some time before I can look at the snowy breast of a penguin without imagining that it contains the tap-tapping heart of a Sammy Davis Jr.
