    The movie's bereftness of invention can be measured by how no story element builds on another. Instead, Happy Feet Two is plotted so that a bunch of disparate things happen, until it's time to end the movie. show more

    For a computer-animated movie about dancing penguins, it's surprisingly leaden. Not even the impressive voice talent can rev up this clumsy spectacle. show more

    Although it's set on the same frozen continent, Happy Feet Two is worlds away from its predecessor. show more

    As a low-cost baby-sitter, this high-energy sequel definitely does the trick. show more

    Even with the addition of new characters, such as the ones voiced by Brad Pitt and Matt Damon, George Miller's animated sequel just isn't very funny. show more

    Robin Williams, who's sometimes too overbearing in real-life live action, makes a great cartoon-character voice. show more

    Pitt and Damon deliver the best lines (wisecracks about the food chain, predators and evolution, etc.) but their characters also represent most of us. show more

    For me, Happy Feet Two is pretty thin soup. The animation is bright and attractive, the music gives the characters something to do, but the movie has too much dialogue in the areas of philosophy and analysis. show more

    The sequel's themes of friendship and interdependency fail to generate much momentum. show more

    From my six year old\'s point of view, this movie was downright boring, and I heartedly agree. First of all, most of the penguins looked so similar, it was difficult to tell them apart, and all of them talked and talked and talked about who knows what. Ditto for Bill and Will the krill. The exception was the Elephant Seal (who never backs up!) and his babies Secondly, the scenery (although beautiful) was pretty static - snow blue skies snow blue skies snow blue skies. As for the film\'s important message - Global Warming\'s devastating effect on Nature (I think) - no child could have figured this out from the film he/she had just viewed. If I hadn\'t paid $18.00, we would have left the theater.

    Linda Yesterday I saw Happy Feet 2 . The animation was excellent and the characters were cute. I do have one complaint that I have not heard from anyone yet. The way the characters speak is somewhat disturbing. We should be teaching our children to enunciate and speak correctly. Did anyone besides me notice this, and find this a problem.?

    It\'s a cute family animation, but story is pulled in different directions and has a plot I could yawn at. Not as good as the first one. It\'s a DVD rental.

    This movie was hilarious, I laughed with my grandson almost through the entire show. It pulled you in immediately and held your attention throughout the entire film. I can\'t wait to see it again in 3D!
