.: Happy Feet 2 :.

I have been watching some pretty great movies of late (Immortals, The Adventures of TinTin, In Time) and do I have another to add to that list.

Happy Feet 2 was just as good as Happy Feet that I watched in a dingy cinema in Miri during my audit days, if not better.

With hilarious cast from the past like *cough* the ladies man Ramon (Robbie Williams) and new ones like Will & Bill the Krill (Matt Damon & Brad Pitt), I just completely fell for this movie. Oh, and how can you not love those absolutely adorable fluffy baby penguins that just wants to make you turn to your dad/mom/husband as ask "Can I have a pet penguin please? Can I, can I?"

Summary : Returning to the landscapes of Antarctica,Happy Feet 2 centers on a grown-up Mumble (Elijah Wood), a tap-dancing penguin whose tiny son Erik has yet to find his own niche. Reluctant to dance, Erik runs away with a couple friends, following the lovestruck Ramon (Robin Williams). Together, they stumble across a mighty puffin named Sven (Hank Azaria), mistaken for a penguin who can fly.

When an ice shelf collapses and traps the rest of the penguins in a valley, Mumble works to save his wife Gloria (pop star Pink, replacing the late Brittany Murphy, and billed by both her given name and stage name) and the rest of the many penguins, eventually recruiting both different penguin nations and other animals.

The cast was through & through entertaining, the jokes (though lame) kept us laughing and laughing. The songs & musical of different genres was just too awesome that just makes you wanna tap your feet (especially Papa Oom Maw Maw) and go *awwww...* whenever they feature the cute lil fluffy baby penguins. Pink's voice was just great when she did a solo part of Bridge of Light. Super powerful vocal I tell you! 

Storyline is pretty much predicable (no spoiler if I were to tell that everything ended with a "happily ever after").
Oh, another must mention is the hilarious sideline is Will & Bill the Krill with Krillion of jokes that you can just have to laugh. 

All in all, a what JC would call a "feel good movie". I wouldn't mind catching it a second time!
