Review By JESSICA ALMY
Vegetarians who forgo fish for environmental reasons will adore “Happy Feet.” Along with giving kids a glimpse into the natural history of penguins, this animated movie also deals with issues of overfishing, environmental destruction, and animal suffering in zoos. Kids will learn that we need to leave the fish in the oceans for the penguins, and leave the penguins in the wild.
While the pop music and dancing isn’t for everyone, the animation is beautiful and the dialogue is witty — and there’s even a depiction how the legislative process can effect change. To view the trailer, visit iTunes.
Rated PG. Ages 5 and up.
