In the great nation of Emperor Penguins, deep in Antarctica, you’re nobody unless you can sing – which is unfortunate for Mumble (voice of Elijah Wood), who is the worst singer in the world. He is born dancing to his own tune…tap dancing!
Though Mumble’s mum, Norma Jean (Nicole Kidman), thinks this little habit is cute, his dad, Memphis (Hugh Jackman), says it “just ain’t penguin.” Besides, they both know that, without a Heartsong, Mumble may never find true love. As fate would have it, his one friend, Gloria (Brittany Murphy) happens to be the best singer around. Mumble and Gloria have a connection from the moment they hatch, but she struggles with his strange “hippity-hoppity” ways.
Mumble is just too different – especially for Noah the Elder (Hugo Weaving), the stern leader of Emperor Land, who ultimately casts him out of the community. Away from home for the first time, Mumble meets a posse of decidedly un-Emperor-like penguins – the Adelie Amigos. Led by Ramon (Robin Williams), the Adelie’s instantly embrace Mumble’s cool dance moves and invite him to party with them. In Adelie Land, Mumble seeks the counsel of Lovelace the Guru (also Robin Williams), a crazy-feathered Rockhopper penguin who will answer any of life’s questions for the price of a pebble.
Together with Lovelace and the Amigos, Mumble sets out across vast landscapes and, after some epic encounters, proves that by being true to yourself, you can make all the difference in the world.
An excellent movie; amazing and capitavating animation, great songs, great actors including Robin Williams, all the while it conveys importance messages of respect, team-work, self-confidence and global responsibility. My 3 year old can't stop watching it and we adults don't mind watching it several times over too. It's one of the few movies I've bought as a keepsake for my child to pass on to his children in years to come.
Okay, I wasn't too impressed when I saw this movie, and I was glad that I didn't see this in the movies, because if I did, I wouldn't be happy. I admit that the story was great and creative, but what annoyed me the most in this movie was the animation. I couldn't feel the emotion coming through and it just seemed to me that the animation was done half-heartedly. It's still enjoyable though.
I thought this movie was gonna be just some lame flick for five year olds! I was so wrong!
Happy Feet is a brilliant comedy with Robin Williams doing one of his best roles I've ever senn (or heard) him in.
Watching little Mumble dance was so cute I just wanted to pick him out of my TV screen and cuddle him!
This movie is for everyone! Young and old!
Please watch this film.
