Bottom Line: Granted, there’s no real plot or message (other than sometimes the smallest things can create the greatest change) but most out-of-touch critics are unfairly panning this infectiously fun flick. It’s toe-tapping, upbeat, family-friendly, visually-stunning and a pleasant, snowy-white kick-off to the holiday season. Naysayers on this charming little singing and dancing penguin flick need to chill out!
Starring the voices of: Elijah Wood, Pink, Hank Azaria, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and Robin Williams

Story: Happy Feet Two returns audiences to the magnificent landscape of Antarctica in superb 3D. Mumble, The Master of Tap, has a problem because his tiny son, Erik, is choreo-phobic. Reluctant to dance, Erik runs away and encounters The Mighty Sven-a penguin who can fly! Mumble has no hope of competing with this charismatic new role model. But things get worse when the world is shaken by powerful forces. Erik learns of his father's "guts and grit" as Mumble brings together the penguin nations and all manner of fabulous creatures-from tiny Krill to giant Elephant Seals-to put things right. -- (C) Warner Bros
