Happy Feet - Pure Penguin Pleasure

Happy FeetWe went tonight to see "Happy Feet," the long-awaited animated movie about a little penguin, who has no talent for singing, but dances as well as penguinely possible. The movie was lovely—I can see if I had been, say 6 years old, this would have resulted in major penguin-mania. Without saying too much about the movie, the animation was incredibly well done, the baby penguins adorable, and the voices were pretty good. And I still don't understand.... how do you start with a blank screen, and somehow end up with a penguin that looks exactly like Elijah Wood? Man, I missed out on that whole talent queue. I must have been standing in some other line back when that talent was being meted out. I can't call myself a dancer by a long stretch, but I got tappety feetsies after this show — I did a few twirls in the parking lot. Go see it, it's a nice evening's entertainment. It gets a cool A- (the plot coulda used a teensy bit of beefing up)
