Comedy adventure Happy Feet is set in the land of the Emperor penguin, in the heart of Antarctica. Each Penguin needs a 'heart song' to attract a soul mate. Unfortunately Mumble (voiced by Elijah Wood), son of Memphis (Hugh Jackman) and Norma Jean (Nicole Kidman), is the worst singer in the world. He is, however, a born tap dancer. Though Norma Jean thinks her son's dancing skills are cute, Memphis says it “just ain't penguin”. Besides, the both know that without his song, Mumble may never find true love. Joined by Lovelace the Guru (Robin Williams), Mumble sets out on an epic journey. Featuring special arrangements of classic pop songs by the likes of the Beach Boys, Queen and Prince, Happy Feet follows one penguin's quest for love, in a place where “a simple song can mean the difference between a lifetime of happiness and an eternity of loneliness.” The film contains scenes of peril and some slightly rude humour, and carries a 'PG' (Parental Guidance) rating in America.
