DVD Release: Happy Feet Two

Bottom Line: The music is great and the animation occasionally breathtaking, but the story is M.I.A., which makes it a decent, not great, movie to enjoy with the whole family.

The Gist: Mumble the penguin is all grown up, mostly. He and Gloria have a little hatchling named Eric, who, like his father, can’t seem to find his special voice or special dance. When shifting ice trap the penguin colony in a chasm, it’s up to Eric, Mumble, and a few friends to rescue their flock. Read our full review.

The Verdict: Watch it. This movie isn’t great, but it’s still a good time with the family. Everyone will enjoy the toe tapping music.

Be Aware: Rated PG for some rude humor and mild peril, this flick is fine for all but the most sensitive children.
