Except musically challenged Mumble (voiced by Elijah Wood--Lord of the Rings films). In frozen Antarctica, where penguins sing to woo a mate, Mumble's talent is dancing: When his fellow penguins start to croon, Mumble's feet want to move. Even worse, Gloria (voiced by Brittany Murphy), the object of Mumble's affection, only wants to hear a song from Mumble's heart. But when encroaching fishermen threaten the penguins, the colony is saved by Mumble's valor, and Gloria's heart is won by his dancing, Happy Feet. Directed by George Miller (Babe), choreographed by Tony winner Savion Glover and featuring the voices of Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Robin Williams and crocodile hunter Steve Irwin.

Ultra-cute kid flick has a few scary, emotional moments.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Happy Feet is an appealing animated film with plenty of catchy music. It deals with environmental themes related to humans intruding on natural habitats but avoids the heavy-duty questions of how to solve the problem. Some of the chase sequences and elephant seal scenes might be scary for younger kids. Also, stereotyping come into play: Latin-inspired penguins are caricatured as party-loving animals, and an African-American-inspired penguin comes across as an oversexed, fundamentalist preacher. Still, the movie's messages of integrity, social acceptance, and embracing your own uniqueness shine through.
