“Happy Feet” sucks.

Filed under: Uncategorized — lisoosh @ 1:54 pm

Just sucks. It’s a hot day, the kids are bored and I rented something to keep them occupied indoors and this movie sucks. Who gave this thing the Oscar over Cars?



  1. My son actually loved it. He’s 3. my 7 year old was bored out of her skull. I’ve seen bits and pieces of it about 25 times now (we own it) and it does grow on you…
    Cars rocks, however…and the only thing I think caused Happy Feet to win was the making of the film, which really was quite amazing. Sorry your hot day wasn’t spent with better entertainment! Do you have The Incredibles??

  2. NRG – welcome.
    Actually, my 3 year old hated it and it was my 5 year old who sat through the whole thing. I can see why some adults like it due to the whole environmental message but found the music really inappropriate for the kids, and while it is the music of “my” generation, I didn’t like the way it was done.
    Loved Cars, have the Incredibles (I adore the Bond references), had actually wanted to rent “Over the Hedge” but it was unavailable.

  6. Not to mention how terrible the ending is. So, the penguin does a small dance at the zoo and the people immediately “get” the anti-fishing message he is sending? That is quasch! He would have just been utilised as a novelty for people to come and see, since how often do you see a dancing penguin? It was also rushed since they seemed to realise how much time they wasted not getting that plot driven and noticed.

    Another bad thing is the implications it ignores; now a whole lot of fisherman are out of a job. It is very black and white the message they were sending. A much better film for an environmental message is Princess Mononoke or Promised Land – that latter really resonated with me.

    Last but not least, in spite of the effort with animation (it is beautiful) and sound the writing is stock standard and, ultimately, boring.
