"Happy Feet" is an animation about this cute little penguin who can't sing but can tap dance. He is determined to find out who are stealing fish in the ocean from them. Of course, it's us.
Even an emperor penguin doesn't sing or dance, by just walking around in his tuxedo outfit, he can already melt my heart.
Watching those adorable creatures (even they are animated) moving around on the giant screen with hippy music, it simply brings smile on everyone's face and softens the most heartless mind, even Dick Cheney.
I want a penguin as my toy. Maybe not a real penguin, but a stuffed animal will do. It's such a joy to watch them dancing and singing. I wish that the film had stuck with the penguin's performance as entertainers. That would be a great film.
Unfortunately, the film decides to include a "message" and add a plot to let this little penguin to find out the polluters of the ocean. That's just a little bit stretching too thin and it totally ruins the fun. It does not work. Period. Despite this disappointment element, the film is still quite enjoyable and entertaining.
Just let the penguins sing and dance, they already have their outfits on.
My rating: 7 out of 10.
