It's starring penguins! Adorable ones. I know it's a year old, but I just saw this on HBO last night. Wow-it was wonderful. I can understand why it won an Oscar.

I'm sure it was discussed already, so I won't go into it, so I guess this is a headsup for anyone with HBO who's interested.

I thought life was a cabaret. Thanks for the update re: Happy Feet

Cute movie. Although I thought the first 30 minutes were the best. It kind of went all over the place after that

Yeah, it really did. It was clever, though. I loved the references to Jaws, Close Encounters, and 2001!

But the movie that I can't watch again because it totally broke my heart was March of the Penguins. OMG, and it's all reality-talk about crying at a film.

i can't watch that movie again either.

it's just sitting on the dvd shelf... we bought it because my brother is a penguin fanatic and we thought it was going to be all cute and fun.
it was so sad though.

I know, Abba. I don't cry at "people" movies, but this one got to me. I simply can't watch it again.

I <3 Happy Feet, but I hate the part where they make Mumble look crazy and he's throwing fish at the wall. re: Happy Feet

I too am scarred by March of the Penguins. I had this foreboding feeling through the whole thing that some tragedy was going to befall at least some of the penguins. It made me uneasy through the entire thing.

And of course, I was right. re: Happy Feet
