I went to Happy Feet enthusiastic and excited. I was ready to be subjected to the loveable cuteness of happy little penguins. Unfortunately, my happy little penguins weren't happy at all. Apparently, we're killing their ecosystem. I'm not sure that kids will get it. And frankly, I'm not sure how it ties into the movie at all. Perhaps the kid population is a lot more conscious about environmental issues than I suppose they are. All I know is that my little four year old was laughing at the kid aimed jokes and got antsy when the scenes started to get sad. As far as moving messages, the movie was sad at times, but nothing earth shattering. Either way, the message, whether it be "it's great to be different" or "save the tap dancing penguin population," it was a weak one. Not horrible, but not great, either.
