I didn't think anybody cared about Happy Feet 1.

Penguins are over-rated.

There aren't that many penguin films.  The first Happy Feet did pretty darn well (nearly $200 million in the US), and it was a film I was excited about seeing on its original release because it was helmed by George Miller (Mad Max flicks, Babe movies).  It was impressive from a technical standpoint, and it wasn't boring or anything, but it seemed kind of scatterbrained in its presentation.  It was an adventure, a musical, a comedy, and it took a dark turn with its odd scenes incorporating human actors and an environmental message.  Not that all those elements can't work together, but it was just a big mish-mash.  I might see the sequel.

I didn't like Happy Feet. It struck me as a movie they threw together to capitalize on the success of March of the Penguins. Hence, the big mish-mash.

I enjoyed the movie, though I wouldn't call it brilliant by any stretch.  I will say though that I had the honour of attending the premiere here where the film was introduced by none other than Mr Miller himself, which probably made me enjoy it more!

I wonder how they could do a sequel though?  It'll go to some bizarre place if they continue with the 'humans noticing they can dance' angle.

I saw when I took a girl out to a movie.  We both liked it, but I just don't see why it would warrant a sequel.  Where could they possibly go after how the film end.  Plus, Britany Murphy passed away.  It would be weird to do a sequel without her, especially when she had a big role in the movie (mostly) and she was very good.  Why make a sequel and have to replaced her (Pink is filling in as her singing voice now)?

"Happy Feet" was alright, but I didn't leave the theatre thinking "Y'know, this movie needs a sequel. There were just too many loose ends and there's so much you can do with tap-dancing penguins." Sheesh Hollywood...some stories/messages are much more effective if they do their thing, take a bow, and finish with just one movie. Did "Citizen Kane" need a sequel? No, it did not. The filmmakers made their point and moved on.
