A feel good movie, entertaining for both kids and adults; Animation was great; good themes; the quality of the DVD was also very good
Good movie but lots of stops
Singing and dancing penguins supplying entertainment for the whole family.
This DVD had two stops in the viewing - and we had to restart and show again, but it stoped again - so did not watch the whole DVD - Suggest it needs looking at
The show is clever. Proud to be an Aussie
great movie for all the family
This movie reminded me that every small thing we do within iur own home affects the whole world.
Very musical, the kids and i loved this film
All fluff and nonsense. It was a kids movie done badly. The adult themes were clumsy and the kids entertainment was limited. My daughter prefers to watch playchool over and over again rather than this fluff piece. Not in the same league as its peers like shrek or toy story.
entertained me and the boys.. very cute
We had no problems with the dvd but had a lot of fun watching on dvd.
My son loved it, we had it for a while and he watched it over and over again
This is a beautiful movie that I watched it 3 times. A wonderful story about never giving up
Fantastic movie. I wish I had "Happy Feet' . This was a winner will my whole family.
Is an excellent movie for all the family.
Watched it again today... still great!!!
A great fun-filled movie. Will have you smiling and tapping your feet all the way through.
Amazing animation and a good environmental message. Let's hope the powers that be might take note.
I thought this was a great film.
The characters and voices are fantastic, the CGI is amazing. It looks so real during some scenes. The story is lovely and warm making you really sympathise with the penguins and what they're facing.
I thought it had a really adventurous, exciting moral story that people of all ages can enjoy.
I gave it 4/5.
thought my kids would love it, but alas
Great movie, we all loved it
Great feel good movie I loved it
Brilliant! Love the music!
this animation is wonderful and a pleasure to watch even with its sutle reminder to the enviroment
I can not believe that this movie won the Oscar over Cars! There is next to no story line ? penguin tap dances instead of singing like everyone else. All the accents and funny voices make the dialogue really hard to follow. Basically it is just plain boring.
Great film for adults and children. Very lively and easy for the kids to understand. Thoroughly enjoyed this movie and wish there were more like it.
Today's animated movies usually have just as big an appeal to the adults as they do the kids .. with the exception of this one. My 2 year old granddaughter absolutely loved it .. I however found it well below par
It makes you feel that even though we are killing them we can save them. I hope this movie helps the polar bears aswell.
It was a great children's movie but as a adult I loved the music, graphics and the dancing, not much story line to it but who cares with that music and dancing happening.
A funny movie for all of the family, unless they don`t a sense of humour.
Mumble has a problem. Whilst his kind are born to sing their "heart tune" both to find a mate and to fit in, he's so "different" to the mob that he has to dance to his own tune. And boy, can he dance! Ridiculed at first for his Un-Emperor ways, Mumble learns early on that although he's different, he's ultimately Happy - within his heart. We join Mumble on an epic journey where he meets up with a different species of Penguin - those who know that if you got rythm, blues don't matter. His new found friends try to help him win the heart of Gloria - the best singer in Emperorland, but alas, she smells a rat and although fond of Mumble, she knows that being in love with someone so different is bound to cause her problems. Survival within the mob means to conform slavingly to it's rules. Mumble, though, has been different all his life, and as such knows that within him lies the strength to find out the truth of why the sea is emptying of fish... which is affecting the whole of Emperorland. Courageously daring to snub the Elders, in exile he embarks on a perilous journey to find out the truth... he has a few friends who see his strength. Although parhaps targeted at kids, this film has resonance for all of us. To dance to our tune is what makes us "us" as individuals. In ancient Greece, Aesop wrote a fable about a different sort of Emperor. The themes of this film are pretty much the same; if you dare to be different, you're not really hurting anyone by it and you're happy doing so, you may find "the mob" might learn a few new steps. Sometimes they need to, but to teach them takes faith in your own truth, and guts. No guts? No glory. The tears of joy at this film's end for this reveiwer were profound. Uplifting and beautifully animated, it comes Highly Recommended.
Probably for families with small kids only, it didn't do much for me.
It just shows hype marketing does get people to watch poor movies. Great animation is about the only positive I can think of...
I am a little bit over digital animation for the sake of it. Give me a plot that isn't cliched and I will love it again like when Toy Story and Shrek first surprised us all.
Love this movie, highly recommend to all families and children. Colourful characters, with a special message to all who watch it.
a great family flik. the kids and i loved this dvd. we'd certainly add it to our library.
A great laugh.... poor happy feet!
great movie for those with a young family, very true underline story. Being individual is special too!
I loved this movie and found it delightful from beginning to end. Beautiful singing, story and scenery!!!!!!
Great foot tapping movie with a message. Leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy
Enlightening about emporer penguins! Funny. Good theme about saving their food source, which is put across in a very watchable way.
Good film and quite uplifting but the scary bits were a bit too graphic for my 3 year-old
The first half of this movie was pure joy -- the second, like being drowned under ice. It's almost as if they swapped directors halfway through. Note to George M: if you want to make a greenie statement, hire Al Gore as your spokesman, and not a CG pengiun.
Great movie for both kids and adults,
Robin Williams as Ramon a mexicam Penguin was a stand out.
woth watching just for Ramon.
One of the best movies I've seen in a long time. A very close second if not better than the original Shrek. A feel good movie with a great ending.
Great entertainment. One for the kids of all ages.
This was a great feel-good movie. Great fun to watch, enjoyable for children and adults alike!
Fabulous for kids and adults.
This movie is enjoyable for the whole family to watch together, my toddler sat there for the whole thing which is unusual.
Not really my type of movie but excellent technically.
So much promise and so beautifully executed, yet it could have been so much better. Great flocks of penguins in synch, singing and dancing, are simply amazing. With just a bit of suspended belief, they could be real. But that’s also the problem: some things jar against the illusion. For one, the tap-dancing, a key point in the story, just doesn’t look coordinated with the sound. And so many different accents: Aussie, American, Hispanic, Scottish, you name it, just doesn’t make sense. It makes it hard for the listener, and anyway, wouldn’t one “nation” all speak with the one accent? A bit less singing and more story would’ve helped too. So disappointing overall, but worth staying with to the end; there is an obvious message.
Great movie, and I've been to Antarcita.
A lot of little querks in the are actually based on real mannerisims of penguins.
The music was great - could see myself happily dancing to the soundtrack. Effects were pretty good. The environmental message was a bit hidden under all the hollywood soppiness. A feel good movie.
This movie was excellent. A great family movie. My 2 year old daughter couldn't get enough of it. It was played about 4 times in a row
loved it and so did the kids
I'm not usually one to even watch an animated movie but wow glad I did'nt miss this one! The combination of new computor technology, wonderful music and incredible imagination certainly has produced a winner for all ages. Loved it!
I loved it. Would definately watch it again. It's a great family movie.
was a fantastic movie would recomend it to everyone
Didn't live up to the hype - completely - but nice enough in its way
we enjoyed this very much, most delightful
This was not only an adorable movie, but one of great substance, particularly in relation to community reactions to difference. I feel sorry for adults who are unable to identify the storyline. It has a salient message to adults and children alike.
No way as good as other animated flicks like Surfs up or Finding Nemo. The storyline was okay, but not well executed.
This was the best animated movie I have seen in a long time, and with a real message too!
Awesome!! Brilliant animation, fantastic story.
funny - sometimes sad - movie about a penguin, who is, let's say, a little bit different than the others. but all in all it ends, that he is very special, cause in the end all others "have to" dance like he always did... absolutely excellent movie!
Excelent light entertainment.The story and animation very good to superb.When you want to relax and forget your daily trials and tribulations watch this picki.
Was expecting better, found it myself a little boring, seemed a little too heavy for kids, but my son (2) loved the singing and dancing.
Great family movie, worth watching.
THIS IS AN EXLENT FAMILY MOVIE THAT EVERY BODY WILL ENJOY
Really entertaining for the kids, lots of music that adults will enjoy as well.
What an uplifting story, watched it several times and was mesmerised by the life of the emperor penguin brought to life in this animated master piece. The songs, the dancing and the lovable characters made it the film it is. Would rate up there with Babe and the Lion King.
All I can say is we all loved it - great family viewing & with an unmistakable message
I couldn't get into this film. I switched off half way through and didn't see it to the end. It has no humour, the music is irritating, and it's too cutesy by far. I was expecting much more.
I really enjoyed this movie for what it is - a brilliant, fun annimation. I loved the underwater scenes.
Good light entertainment even for Adults
Shouldn't be missed by adult or child.
It shows that one person because he is different no-one is intersted in him, plus there is some laughs through it
Great music, warm and fuzzy. Suitable for any age. The movie was vert cleverly done.
Absolutely Brilliant. And not only is it fantastic, but there's a very strong message regarding the environment too!
Iloved it, I laughed, I cried, and just really enjoyed it, it's not only a warm fuzzy movie, but it also addresses a huge environmental issue. Fantastic
Very good film,clever & funny.
this film has all the elements that should make it a success but it doesnt really manage to hold the attention of the viewer especially when these are little people. So it must be for the parents!! As always the music and voices were the strongest feature.
A really fun kids movie. The animation was absolutely amazing!
Excellent for the kid target audience. For adults, it pales in comparison to the Shrek and Ice Age franchises.
This movie seemed to drag on a bit too long and ended up trying to push an environmentalist-type agenda.
Very sweet, with a nice environmental message
this movie was great and makes you want to sing with them.Robin williams and the little penguins were the best.
great movie for all of the family just makes you want to sing with the penguins.Robin williams was the best actor and all of the little mexican penguins.great movie all up.
great movie for all of the family just makes you want to sing with the penguins.
A cute movie not as good I throught it would be
Fantastic show, brilliant animation and a message for those who don't care about the planet.
While it may be called a childrens movie there is an underlying message of Belief in Self and Perseverance
zero storyline; laughs are few and far between; cute characters with an overdose of predictably poppy singing and tap-dancing. your kids may be glued to the first half of this painfully long music video, but this crummy Pixar flick is headed straight for the bargain bins, i would give it 1/2 star if Quickflix let me, (unlike the brilliant Nemo).
A truly wonderful feel-good movie. Fantastic animation.
Kids might like it - not much there for adults.
Awsome story loved the moral. Have to watch even if your an old fart
a movie the whole family will love
Great film. great graphics, even feel the softness of the fur...
Cute and moral
A fun movie, with a terrific message for all. It was so well made with breathtaking scenery and each character endeared itself to me.
It's a kid's film but thoroughly entertaining for everyone. Technical processes are marvellous. Interview by 2 young people of George Miller excellent extra.
I didn't think much of it, too much like a musical for me but my daughter thought it was OK
Very funny movie loved every minute of it, well worth watching.
oh look, it was a take on the ole boy meets girl saga that ends in happily ever after. I loved it, both as a musical and a cutesy love story. It may have been over the top Hollywood style, but still fan bloody tastic as us aussies say!!
Great animation and fantastic humour!!!
forget the kids this was great
I couldn't get with the whole happy feet thing, lost interest part-way in and found maybe it was aimed at the younger generation.
fun movie that was ALMOST great but somehow just not quite!
Smiled the whole time i was watching it
Very clever but not very entertaining
Grandkids loved it. It was cute and well done.
A movie the whole family can enjoy.
Awesome animated movie.I loved it. A wonderful story. I LOVE penguinsand this movie made me love'em more! Kids will adore this movie (even the big kids like me!)
Only just worth watching. Don't know how it won an award though.
Strictly for children under the age of eight
Did not think this movie was as good as people say that it was. Story took a while to warm up and was waiting to them dance but had to wait to the end to see this by then I ws a bit bored. The beginning was cute but sad.
my son and I really enjoyed this movie,I think anyone young at heart should watch this,highly recommended
Great movie although probably not quite up there with some other cartoon movies.
This movie was the best animated movie I have ever seen. I just with my 3 year, just mesmerized. In fact, I could relate to Mumble is so many ways. It was just wonderful.
I thought it was a sweet film, bearing the message that everyone has good qualities, they just have to learn how to use them and that even an so-called misfit has a part to play in the wider community.
A brilliantly animated wholesome family story with great music and underlying environmental messages.
Not the story line i expected. but great entertainment. Definitely not just for kids
It lacked something, but the Latino penguins made the movie.
Well done and thoroughly enjoyed even though it had a green message
Excellent viewing for all ages.
better than cars. the music suited the film in more ways that could ever be expected. a great family night in
Would have been much better to see at the cinema on the big screen.
A charming, enojyable film that maybe goes a little too long. The singing and dancing is very catchy, and there are a lot of funny moments. A terrific effort by George Miller and the Australian Animal Logic team.
Great movie, loved the animation, character voices were fantastic, not to be missed.
Great for the kids and cool music for the adults too - we loved it
Quite enjoyable, not as good as I expected though
Wasn't at all what I expected. Good message for the kids but not very riveting as all the hype said it would be. Quite disappointing really.
Liked the movie but did feel it was too drawn out for a children's movie.
Did not think it as good as what it was made out to be, the early storyline was ok and the characters were great but it lost my interest about halfway through.
This movie is great to watch, my kids & I love it. Take notice of Trav the elephant seal, because the voice was provided by the late Steve Irwin.
very enjoyable even for oldies
Lovely music, don't know if the children understand the story that much
Visually fantastic. Quite entertaining characters and a very clever way to convey an important message, especially to kids. The storyline was fairly basic but perhaps recent animated movies have spoiled adults too much. This one is definitely more a kids movie with a point.
kids family not to missed excellent
kids family not to missed excellent
Enjoyed - just love animated films
A worthy Oscar-winner! Very cute film with plenty for adults to enjoy as well. Great cast and great music. This one is a keeper.
Absolutely wonderful film, it was funny, touching and uplifting. Loved it!
Very different, high educated as usual, funny, great picture
Nice dancing,but could have gone further. a little disappointed after all the hype.
all my friends were raving about it, not much of a storyline, (next time i should listen to).
Not quite I expected.
The story glossed over many of the harsh realities of animal life.
i thought this was a great kids/family movie with a message. great feel good movie.
Just a tad to much singing.
well what a great movie my son cried when i sent it back,he wanted to keep it.i love quick flix it saves me the hastle of dragging my kids out in the cold to pick a movie.it's great delievery service.thanks again quick flix.i cant wait to get my next lot of dvd's i have recomended u to a lot of friends.
It was an enjoyable movie to watch
Excellent music and very entertaining - love it
excellant movie for adults as well as kids colours were really eye catching. Good story line.
Definately a good family movie my grandkids were happy feeting for days after.
Very cute movie....what can I say, I enjoyed the music and the characters were cute. Kids loved it and played it a few times. suitable for any age. worthwhile view.
A "feel good" Movie. Cute and happy.
Enjoyable for whole family especially the children and the children at heart.
Sadly, was underwhelmed. Music wasn't catchy enough (although Prince's Kiss was quite good), dancing didn't feature nearly enough to fit the title and when it did was average. The kids (3 and 5) found the leopard seal, birds of prey and the killer whales frightening. Didn't have the 'grown-up' wit of Madagascar and Shrek to keep the adults entertained. It gets the 2 paws for the animation which was great.
I thought this movie would be for kids and I was not keen on watching it when my wife selected it. How wrong could I be. I enjoyed every bit of it and I could watch it again
Happy Feet was well worth watching, I was very impressed with the Production of this movie, and it was very funny.
My best friend had seen this at the movies and said it was great but on the smaller TV it was a bit ordinary and not as good as some other animated movies of the past.
I didn't real watch it but grand kids did and they loved it. They didn't take their eyes off until it was finished,
No great belly laughs, but the kids liked it.
This was the best movie I have ever seen. The kids loved it I loved it, it made you want to dance Just The best
No story line! Nicole kidman and Hugh Jackman put on voices that are really annoying and that's comming from a NK fan! It was cute but that's about it. If you're a kid you'd like it but older than about 10 then don't bother.
If you like dancing and singing should be watch it , this movie good for the kid.
