Happy Feet : Unfortunately I have to say this song and dance animated feature was a disappointment. The animation itself is first rate and the depiction of the South Pole as a wonderland is excellent.
Do I really want to sit through animated, song and dance routines though ? Yes, they’re catchy. Yes, the voices are appropriate (Hugh Jackman, Elijah Wood, Nicole [only a small role and not enough to get excited about … pity], Robin Williams – a bright spot with his brand of comedy pitched at just the right level). No, it just doesn’t sustain interest. And the ending – urgh ! What a terrible way to end. “Quick, lets cram in an environmental message, go for “happy” and play the ‘get out of jail free’ card.”
