The story begins with the birth of a penguin who can't stop moving his feet. He is deemed "unnatural" and is ousted by the leader of their flock(?). In their part of Antarctica, you are nobody unless you can sing. Mumble(Elijah Wood) sets out to find a solution to the fish shortage, gain acceptance, and make his parents(Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman) proud. Gloria, Mumble's dream mate, appears throughout the movie. Unfortunately, the romance ends up being a little clichéd.
At times the movie is difficult to follow. It almost feels like you are jumping between scenes. The cast is amazing and everything sounds natural. If you are having trouble finding a child-friendly movie then look no further. Happy Feet will be enjoyed by the entire family.
