Happy Feet Two


Happy Feet Two

Critics Consensus

The animation is as eye-popping as ever, but Happy Feet Two's narrative is too noisily incoherent to recapture the Oscar-winning charm of its predecessor.

Movie Info

Happy Feet Two returns audiences to the magnificent landscape of Antarctica in superb 3D. Mumble, The Master of Tap, has a problem because his tiny son, Erik, is choreo-phobic. Reluctant to dance, Erik runs away and encounters The Mighty Sven-a penguin who can fly! Mumble has no hope of competing with this charismatic new role model. But things get worse when the world is shaken by powerful forces. Erik learns of his father's "guts and grit" as Mumble brings together the penguin nations and all manner of fabulous creatures-from tiny Krill to giant Elephant Seals-to put things right. -- (C) Warner Bros

Critic Reviews for Happy Feet Two

All Critics (120) | Top Critics (34) | Fresh (54) | Rotten (66)

  • While 'Happy Feet' focused on the tap-dancing Emperor Penguin named Mumble... this one spends more time with his little son Erik... who is simply irresistible. If one agrees that penguins in general are cute, Erik ups the ante considerably.

  • Preaches acceptance but requires assimilation. You dance or you die. Join the party, swim with the swarm.

  • A shambles that's somehow both terribly lazy and hernia-inducingly overcranked at the same time. Disappointing.

  • If there's a saving grace, it's the visuals, especially the beautiful scenes of orange krill. But that's about all.

  • For all the noise and flapping, the movie, like its heroes, remains flightless.

  • Happy Feet was one of the greatest and most original animated films, but the sequel can't even decide what it's about for the first 40 minutes.

Audience Reviews for Happy Feet Two

    The dancing penguins are back for more frivolities in Happy Feet Two. When a rogue iceberg imprisons the emperor penguins in a canyon, Mumble must seek the help of the other Antarctic wildlife in order to get them free. Another all-star cast has been assembled, and includes such new additions as Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and P!nk (who replaces the late Brittany Murphy). However, the characters aren't as interesting or fun this time round. And the music isn't that soulful or clever. Still, Happy Feet Two has its moments and delivers a few good laughs.

    Sequels, most often than not, are inferior to the first installment.

    The laughter from its splendid supporting cast (Williams, Pitt, Damon) hard to miss, no doubt, but Happy Feet Two lacks the magic it's Oscar-winning predecessor had all due to its inconsistent story and cheesy references. The film still produces a pulse-pound beat and sound, just not as strong as the first. 3.5/5

    The film was so so. I actually liked it better than the original. I thought it was a bit uneven. I thought the Matt Damon and Brad Pitt's Krill characters stole the film and deserved a film of their own. Alecia "Pink" Moore does a great job filling in for the late Brittany Murphy. Hank Azaria and Robin Williams also did a good job voice over wise.
