Annotation: Happy Feet tells the story of Mumble (Wood), a tone-deaf Emperor Penguin who is unable to sing his heart song, the ritual required to win his mate, Gloria (Murphy). The fact that Mumble is a terrific tap dancer is completely lost on his tribe, and he spends a rather lonely adolescence as an outsider. His hero's journey involves both discovering his own innate coolness, and, more importantly, solving the mystery of the dwindling supply of edible fish in the ocean. As the latter plot takes over, the film shifts from a touching story of self-belief, to a more urgent ecological plea, but all the themes converge when Mumble's special talent saves the day.

Synopsis: Set in the strange and beautiful world first explored in the 2005 documentary MARCH OF THE PENGUINS, George Miller's HAPPY FEET tells the story of Mumble (Elijah Wood), a tone-deaf Emperor Penguin who is unable to sing his "heart song," the ritual required to win a mate (in this case, his beloved Gloria, voiced by Brittany Murphy). The fact that Mumble is a terrific tap dancer is completely lost on his tribe, and he spends a rather lonely adolescence as an outsider. His hero's journey involves both discovering his own innate coolness, and, more importantly, solving the mystery of the dwindling supply of edible fish in the ocean. As the latter plot takes over, the film shifts from a touching story of self-belief, to a more urgent ecological plea, but all the themes converge when Mumble's special talent saves the day. The film is a triumph of striking CGI animation, with every frame celebrating the vast and breathtaking purity of Antarctica's tundras, snowscapes, icebergs, and waters, as well as its wildlife. The musical numbers--drawing on pop hits of the last 30 years--were choreographed by Savion Glover, and revel in the joyful if slightly limited physicality of the bottom-heavy penguins. While some scary scenes of predation may be too much for very young children, this is an inspiring tale that is suitable for the whole family.
Distributor Note: Emperor penguins are born to sing. All except young Mumble, who was born to dance... tap dance. Such un-penguin- like behaviour eventually gets mumble kicked out of Emperor Land and into the big, cold world. Joined by his Adeliade amigos and an all-knowing Rockhopper penguin named Lovelace. Mumble embarks on an epic journey and ultimately proves that by being true to yourself, you can make a difference in the world! Source: Warner Home Video

"The feet in the title of George Miller's new film shuffle and stomp with glorious syncopation..."

"[A] musically wacky, ecologically activist CG family comedy..."
Review: -02/01/2007
3 stars out of 5 -- "It's MOULIN ROUGE with flippers, the jukebox constantly jumping as tap-happy misfit Mumble tries to find his singing voice."
Review: -02/01/2007
"HAPPY FEET is the first Hollywood animated feature that really evokes the feeling of a live-action spectacular throughout its running time....The film is packed with wildly spinning camerawork."
