I love the music and the concept
Verified purchase
I saw it when I was a kid, and I continue to watch it now. I love the music and the concept. There are some sexual references, but I can tell you that as a child, they went right over my head (and my childhood friends were a group of boys 2-3 years older than me). Some of you all are being a bit oversensitive. Additionally, the movie didn't really portray humans as evil so much as ignorant to the consequences their actions cause. Which is true. Some people need to stop being so defensive and own up to the fact that humans are hurting the planet, and we're doing it quickly. And its good for your children to understand that actions have consequences that may not affect you directly, but certainly impact the planet where they, you know, live. We've heard the humans side of the overfishing issue, but this is from the point of view of the animals. I don't know how you want them to include human empathy in anymore ways than they already did. It didn't promote stopping fishing everywhere - just off the coasts of Antarctica. It teaches kids that being different isn't a bad thing; if you're okay with your kid watching Rudolph then you should be fine with your kid watching this. Also, not that being gay is an issue...but literally everyone in the movie was straight. If you think the main character was gay because he danced, there's a great deal of ignorance on your part. And if you think just because two men hug, they're gay...well, see above.

Not what I expected
Verified purchase
So i need to give two reviews.

First the physical dvd. Came in great shape and very quickly. Very pleased.

Second, the film content. Some movies age well and become classics. Others, not so much. It has many negative race stereotypes, and the whole thing is full of provocative songs about gettin it on. I mean, if i had to pick one main theme of the movie it would be sex. Which is not what i want in movies for my children. So this made its way out of the movie rotation after my daughters started to ask questions like “whats get it on mean?” “How
Do they make love?” “whats a snooty booty?” Etc. For my 4-5yo kids that not what i want from a film.

Dated parent characters, music just okay ....

I did not want to watch this as I remembered from previews years ago that I thought it looked silly and annoying; however, my friend wanted to watch, so we did.

I love watching animated movies with my granddaughter but will watch really well done ones on my own if I’m bored and can’t find anything else, or I need something light and uplifting (especially now during COVID19).

In the beginning I was bored, but as the movie went on, I began to enjoy it a little more.

However, a lot of the music I didn’t care for, like I’m not an Elvis fan, and though I’m a grandmother, I thought the parents were dated being Norma Jean and Memphis (Elvis and Marilyn Monroe)—really, how do kids relate to that? And to some of the other themes in the movie?

I get it that it’s great to make movies that both kids and adults can enjoy, but this one wasn’t as well done as some I’ve seen—like, ‘Up’ or the weird but unique ‘Polar Express’—animated movies like those can be enjoyed by both adults and children. But this movie tried to be cutesy with the adult themes and it fell flat for me.

The ending was sweet and uplifting, I suppose, and had an environmental message, but I’d not watch this again and it certainly won’t be on any fave movie lists to watch with my granddaughter.

What was interesting is how they had the penguins animated but the people were real people—that was a bit unique and unexpected.

Thanks for reading!

Reviewing from the Eyes of my Son
Verified purchase
We bought this blu-ray for our 3-year old son as he loves all the Disney Pixar movies, we thought we would try something different. After I ordered it I saw a number of reviews from people referencing the PG rating and the so called violence and sex and I worried if I made a mistake. I didn't. It was just people overreacting.

Our son absolutely loves this movie. I am rating it from his eyes because to me it is very boring and when I ask him if he wants to watch something, I can only hope he doesn't say penguins. First off, there is no violence in this movie other than a mean looking seal that chases the penguin around as the penguin cracks jokes at him and a couple killer whales that toss a penguin back and forth between their mouths and eventually he slips away. And there is no sex in this movie. The penguins sing the same songs that any kid would hear on your basic top 20 pop station.

My son laughs through this whole movie including the animal chase scenes. If you have no issues with your children growing up in the real world, where in the circle of life animals chase and eat each other and have no problem with them listening to annoying pop music songs that 99% of the time reference love and sex, which 100% of the time is going straight over most kids heads; then I recommend the movie.

If you are looking for some great plot that you will love as an adult and has some big message, this is not it. It will put to sleep.

Definitely not for younger kids
Verified purchase
I had seen this years ago before having kids. Now we have a four year old and an 18 month old. We’re looking for a movie to watch and remembered this one. We didn’t even make it through. It was a little scary for the kids and was incredibly preachy on the environmental issues (and I have a Bachelor in Environmental Science!), not to mention all the sexual innuendos. I’d say watch it with your older kids, maybe 8+ years old.

Great for family! No issues! Great music!
Verified purchase
It is hard to find a good family movie with no cursing or mature themes. Happy Feet was a thrill and pleasure to watch! Such a great story about perseverance and overcoming difficulties and being yourself...great story themes.
And the MUSIC! WONDERFUL!!!

Call function sucks
Verified purchase
Did not get. Likely stolen bc delivery person doesn't know how to read. I am trying to be patient with the quarantine, but there have been many issues especially in the last 6 months. I keep trying to get a call as your chat function sucks & has every time it screws up.

Inspiring

This is one of the best movies to come out of the human experience. It’s funny, it’s endearing, it’s musically stimulating. I can’t praise it enough. The cast is brilliant and the character development is classic hero’s journey.
