Happy Feet

(USA/Australia, 2006, 105 minutes)

An Antarctic emperor penguin is born without the ability to sing but with a prodigious pair of dancing feet; cast away from his tribe for being different, he sets out to find who is depleting the fish the tribe feeds on. Well-meaning and extremely good-looking, this family animation suffers from a very poor script that tries, and fails, to sugar a very heavy-handed ecological message.
