Making the Grades

Mumble (Elijah Wood) the penguin is all grown up with a son of his own. Yet just as Mumble lacked the knack for singing in the movie  Happy Feet, his son Erik (Ava Acres) doesn’t have a forte for fancy footwork. While his father and the rest of the waddle of penguins look like they’ve just come off an MTV video shoot, Erik can’t catch a beat with his feet.

But after meeting the mighty flying Sven (Hank Azaria) whom he believes is a fellow penguin, Erik determines his dream is to soar through the air—a difficult feat for a flightless aquatic species. However when changing environmental conditions cause an ice shelf to slip and capture a colony of Emperor Penguins inside a snowy trap, the young chick determines that flying is their only way out.

Some brief moments of peril occur when several characters fall over cliffs, including a father seal that plummets down into a deep crevasse leaving his two little pups on the bank above. In the natural order of things, hungry predators also chase animals that are lower on the food chain. And some moments of veiled sexual innuendo take place between several characters including a bird that makes moves on another man’s wife.

Mixing animation with motion capture effects in a 3D format, Happy Feet Two is brimming with enthusiastic, highly choreographed dance routines and musical numbers. Added to those are some tender family moments that will capture the attention of even older audience members.
