1 Last summer, my wife and I went to Sea World, neither one of us had been since we were little. The weekend before the trip we watched Happy Feet with our nieces. As you probably could imagine, while we were at Sea World, we came across the penguin exhibit and both of us said at the same time... Damn Happy Feet. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on March 24, 2013, 10:44 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Well, I watched Happy Feet 2. The global warming message is anything but subtle this time. There are also scientific inaccuracies: as "Sven the flying penguin" is described, we see a flashback: polar bears stand on a rapidly melting ice berg, which soon melts to nothing. It just reinforces a scientific inaccuracy: penguin/polar bear coexistence. Polar Bears live in the North pole, penguins live in the South pole. They don't live together in the wild! Also, the B plot line involving the krill is irrelevant. All they do is inject themselves into scenes, adding bupkis to the story. They're more like streakers running across a baseball field, interrupting the game. And they're cliche: small creatures questioning their lot in life. Way to put on that originality cap! Not to mention Sven leads the penguins to singing the Numa Numa Dance song (Dragostea din tei). What were they thinking?! And at one part, I could've sworn I heard the penguin chick singing the bassline for Ice Ice Baby. And the credits are impossible to read. They start infinitesimal at the bottom of the screen, becoming larger as they reach the top. They become barely legible in the middle, hardly giving you time to read who did whose voice. I had to go online to find out who did the voice of Sven! Speaking of which, here's the first plus side: Sven was voiced by Hank Azaria, performing a very convincing Swedish accent. Another one: There's a part where we hear the Russian choir version of We Are the Champions, which is interesting. -- Submitted By: () on October 15, 2012, 9:39 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Me and my ex-girlfriend went to see the first movie a few years ago, and it was at first a very cute movie, something for the kids to watch that was fun. Then halfway through the movie, they sideswipe us with an environmental message. Don't get me wrong, keeping the environment clean and healthy is good, but when I go to a movie expecting one thing, and get another thing happening, that usually isn't good -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on November 20, 2011, 12:41 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
4 This is another instance where, despite that a lot of effort has obviously gone into the design and the animation as well as a somewhat innovatitve idea (it may or may not intice you, I did not really get thrilled - was dragged along). What brought it down, I reckon, was how conventional and stagnant the story was. What Robert said was the biggest hole in the film, that by simply "dancing" the penguin got the message through. I know about suspension of disbelief, but there are limits. Over-rated film, does not need a sequel. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on November 19, 2011, 8:28 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 At first glance, it was yet another penguin movie. When you watch it, it starts out as a story of uniqueness in a world of conformity. Near the end, it takes an environmental turn to deliver the messages of overfishing and global warming. I don't really see how a penguin's dancing translates to "Humans, your actions are affecting us". It's sort of like Lassie barking, and concluding she's saying, "Timmy is in an abandoned mine in the middle of nowhere, and the entrance is blocked by a wall of rubble after a landslide". And how is the dancing a warning call? He's dancing because he's got Happy Feet. If he was dancing because of global warming, wouldn't they be "Sad Feet"? As for the sequel, I don't see the point. It's not like Happy Feet could go anywhere after the first movie, nor is there closure to be addressed. For example, in Cars, we could see how Lightning gets along with his new friends on Route 66. And in Toy Story, you knew one day Andy would grow up, and you're wondering the fates of Woody, Buzz, and the rest of his toys. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 19, 2011, 12:22 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
