Still shot from the movie: Happy Feet.

Happy Feet

In the waddle of penguins where Mumble (voice by Elijah Wood) is born, being able to sing ensures status in the flock and the best chance for attracting a mate. Unfortunately, this Antarctic dweller can't carry a tune, even though he's an amazing dancer. This coming-of age tale focuses on the positives of non-conformity, environmental issues and MTV style dance numbers-- but not much on the storyline. Get the movie review and more. »

How We Determine Our Grades

Toe-tapping penguins team up with actor Dick Van Dyke for an animated musical number in Mary Poppins. A perky little porker doesn’t quite fit into the mold of an average farmyard pig in the movie Babe. The award-winning documentary, March of the Penguins, looks at the arduous annual journey of the Emperor Penguins across the snow packed plains of Antarctica.
