I just finished watching an awesome movie called Happy Feet. This movie is really great because it is really interesting and shows how a penguin that is a little different than everyone else makes it through and proves to everyone that it is ok to be yourself. The movie is about a penguin named Mumble who was born with happy feet. He is always bouncing up and down with his feet and dancing around. When he was just an egg his dad dropped the egg and that is why his father thinks he is always dancing. Mumble sets out on a journey to discover why all of the fish are missing and prove to his family that he is just another penguin like everyone else. My favorite character in the movie is Mumble. I like Mumble because he is really funny and he never gives up. He is determined to find out who has taken all of the fish and he believes in himself. I also like Gloria because she is one of the only penguins who believes in Mumble besides Mumble's mom. I would recommend this movie for kids ages 3 to 18. The movie doesn't have any inappropriate parts for younger viewers and it is a movie that can teach kids and adults how to be more accepting of people and not be mean just because someone is a little different. The movie also has a lot of funny parts that the whole family will enjoy. Happy Feet is an official movie title for the 2012 Kids First! Film Critic Search. Credit: Anthony Aranda, age 9, KIDS FIRST!

Cute cute cute. These penguins are simply adorable and the dance scenes remarkable. You will want a penguin of your own to take home. Great voice talent, fabulous animation, wonderful musical score. The Broadway style production numbers are cleverly adapted to penguins. Outstanding environmental message which should make everyone want to reduce, reuse, recycle. Some crude language, potty humor and scary monsters.
Into the world of the Emperor Penguins, who find their soul mates through song, a penguin is born who cannot sing. But he can tap dance something fierce!
