"What is Happy Feet REALLY about?"


  

          

I just saw this movie for the first time (I know--late pass). I have to say that this is the most unusual American animated film I've seen.

I like the movie but I can't really figure out what this film is speaking on. On one level, it's a tale about being accepted and on another level it could be about...

....I don't know.

I know the animation snobs will descend on me for saying that, but that's what it is.

It's not like we're talking about Miyazaki here.

Because there's far more going on there.

People could be similarly dismissive about comedies as well.

it had church innuendo all throughout that thing.

on a side note, did you ever notice how when dreamworks makes an animated movie, the main character has a handicapped? like Nemo with the extra long fin and the itty bitty one. Just a thought.

It's almost parallel to Mantan's last dance in Bamboozled. For a second, I thought that's where they were going even though the religion stuff was kinda obvious.

It was shoving its views down my throat. Especially the end with the whole environmental spiel, it forced itself upon me a little too much.

Dr. George makes weird movies (Thunderdome, Lorenzo's Oil, Babe 2). But kids need a little genuine weirdness in their lives, rather than safe Disney quirkiness.
