Happy Feet Two
My kids did not have school today. Our school district is nice and gives us this day for families that travel for the holiday. Since we did not have school, Kara and I went to the movies. There were 3 movies we wanted to see, The Muppets, Arthur Christmas, and Happy Feet Two. Since my son was not able to come with us today and told me he would like to see the Muppets, we decided to wait on that one. I allowed Kara to choose, and my penguin loving daughter chose to go to Happy Feet Two. If you were a fan of the first one, you will definitly love this one. Right away during the opening credits, I was impressed with the stars in the cast. Elijah Woods, Alecia Moore (AKA Pink), Robin Williams, Sophia Vergara, Hank Azaria, Brad Pitt, and Matt Damon. Elijah Woods is the voice of Mumbles the dancing penguin from Happy Feet One. He is now the father of a non dancing penguin who is trying to find his own place in the world. There were a few parts that were intense and could be scary for younger children, but there were also some very funny parts as well. I loved Brad Pitt and Matt Damon as Will and Bill the Krill. I also loved all the fun music that played throughout the entire movie. It was a fun, feel good movie, and we left the theater singing and smiling. I definitely recommend it!
