Two popular penguin-related movies. 'Happy Feet' (2006) is an animated comedy featuring the voices of Robin Williams, Nicole Kidman and Elijah Wood. Emperor penguins have lived for centuries with one simple goal in life: to find their soul mates through their own unique heart song. Mumble (Wood), son of Memphis (Hugh Jackman) and Norma Jean (Kidman) is the worst singer in the world but he is a brilliant tap dancer. Unfortunately in Antarctica his toe-tapping talent is deemed peculiar and poor Mumble is branded an outcast by the Emperor Elders. and is even accused of causing the mysterious fish famine which is gripping the penguin community and threatening their way of life. Mumble decides to leave his family and goes on a journey to determine the real cause of the fish famine so he can prove his innocence. All adrift in a lonely hostile world, he meets The Amigos, a wise-cracking comedy crew of Latino Adelie penguins led by Ramon (Williams), who think Mumble's smooth dance moves are 'accidentally cool' and a great way to impress the chicas. The Amigos help him realise the importance of being true to oneself and that being unique is a good thing. Mumble uses courage, determination and, of course, his 'happy feet' to discover the truth, save Emperor Land and win the heart of his soul mate Gloria (Brittany Murphy). 'March of the Penguins' (2005) is a documentary which looks the lives of penguins in the Antarctic. Every March since the beginning of time, the quest begins for every penguin to find the perfect mate and start a family. This courtship will begin with a long journey - a journey that will take them hundreds of miles across the continent by foot, in freezing cold temperatures, in brittle, icy winds and through deep, treacherous waters. They will risk starvation and attack by dangerous predators, under the harshest conditions on earth, all to find true love.
