Happy Feet (2006)

A delightful film for people of all ages. Mumble (Elijah Wood) is a young lad born into a colony of emperor penguins. However, from the very beginning is is different from the rest of the colony. When he busts out of his shell everyone soon realizes that Mumble can not stop dancing. As time goes on and Mumble grows up this continues to be a problem. While in school the teachers try to help all the younger penguins to find their heart song, the mating song of the penguins. However, it soon becomes clear that Mumble can not sing and has no heart song. The elders of the colony are not happy with this and it especially becomes a problem when there is a food shortage. The elders feel that Mumble has angered their god and they banish him from the colony. Soon Mumble sets off to find the real reason for the food shortage so he can go home.

I loved this movie. It was very cute and had a wonderful message about accepting differences and environmental responsiblity. The animation was wonderful and I love how it was mixed with live action. If you love animated films this is a must see.
