When a penguin named Mumble is born without the ability to sing the romantic song that will attract his soul mate, he'll have to resort to some fancy footwork by tap dancing his way into the heart of the one he loves.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You should see Happy Feet -- not only because it's stupendous, but also because it features the best dancing you'll see on the screen this year."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine
"Was I enchanted, entertained or even diverted for its 108-minute running time? Not really."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"Ultra-cute kid flick has a few scary, emotional moments."
‑ Jane Boursaw, Common Sense Media
"The perfect film for audiences who found fault with March of the Penguins because it was too emotionally taxing and you couldn't dance to it."
‑ Angel Cohn, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Stands at the very top of the 2006 animated kid's film class."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Awkward but graceful, derivative but daring, Happy Feet is, indeed, a flightless bird in the best and worst sense."
‑ Stephen Garrett, Time Out New York
"I think kids will love it, because the penguins are cute."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Parables about xenophobia, tolerance, religion and ecological responsibility are played to cuddly conclusions. Balletic underwater sequences and a jukebox-musical soundtrack spanning Chicago to Grandmaster Flash are spoonfuls of sugar for the medicine."
‑ Nick Rogers, Suite101.com
"Puts heart and soul back into the good old computer animated, talking animals family film."
‑ Matthew De Abaitua, Film4
"It's almost impossible to hate. It's not impossible to get a little bored, but that's another tune."
‑ Brian Tallerico, UGO
"Director George 'Babe' Miller has pulled off a coup with this one; he's raised the benchmark to a whole new level, both visually and conceptually. Bravo."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Happy Feet is the kind of musical comedy that might have swept the world if MGM had been based in Antarctica instead of Culver City."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"George Miller's jubilant, eccentric film makes its CGI penguins vibrant, expressive, even cosmic"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Unfortunately, once the eye candy is firmly established, there's a story here that drags and drags. Then it takes a bit of a leap before it drags some more."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Calgary Movies
"...no doubt the movie will entertain and enlighten children. Children of all ages may be another matter."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
