"[T]he film handles the smaller scale superbly, particularly in little visual details, like the shifting reflection of a krill walking on snow. More significantly, the film shows rather than tells." -- Grade: B

"The best characters are new, and they're not penguins but a pair of bug-eyed krill....It culminates in a splendid finale where all creatures great and small, high and low, unite to shake the world."
The eagerly anticipated sequel to the Oscar-winning hit HAPPY FEET TWO finds tap-dancing penguin Mumble (voice of Elijah Wood) and his pals using their smooth moves to save the penguin nation. Mumble and Gloria (voice of Pink) have started a family of their own, and their young son, Erik, is just finding his footing among his fellow emperor penguins when a dire new threat thrusts their future into jeopardy. Just when it begins to look as if all hope is lost, the penguin nation bands together to dance the darkness away. Writer/director George Miller and star Robin Williams both return in this sequel also featuring the voices of Hank Azaria, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and Sofía Vergara.
