Monday saw the release of Happy Feet 2 on DVD and 3D DVD.Warner Brothers were kind enough to send us out both versions to watch so that we could let you know what you thought.
Having somehow missed Happy Feet I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I certainly wasn't ready for the hysterical cries of laughter from the sofa after about 3 seconds of the film being played.
My kids loved this film so much I actually had to tell them to stop laughing so that they could hear it. Really.
Their Dad and I sat at a respectful distance reading the paper (him) and Grazia magazine (me). Thirty minutes and twenty attempts to read one page later they were ditched in favour of this heartwarming and funny movie.
The story goes like this:
The sequel to “Happy Feet,” the Academy Award®-winninganimated smash hit, “Happy Feet Two” returns audiences to the magnificentlandscape of Antarctica in superb 3D.
Mumble, The Master of Tap, has aproblem 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 theworld is shaken by powerful forces.
Erik learns of his father’s “gutsand grit” as Mumble brings together the penguin nations and all manner offabulous creatures—from tiny Krill to giant Elephant Seals—to put things right.
Since it was received yesterday they have watched it, or parts of it, at every opportunity.
At bedtime 'Can I watch Happy Feet 2 again?'
Before school 'Can we watch Happy Feet 2?'
After Playschool 'Watch Happy Meal Mummy?' (Got a bit confused there..)
On the hottest March day on record 'Can we watch Happy Feet 2 instead of going to the beach? Pleeeeease'
It's getting a bit tiresome Warner Brothers.
They seemed to love both versions equally, though of course the 3D version gives a little something extra.
If you fancy owning a copy yourself you can get one here.
Not in a Krillian years did I think I'd see Brad Pitt as seafood.(Sorry.)
Disclosure: This movie was sent to me free of charge for the pruposes of this review.
