Happy Feet Two

JOY REVIEW

I thought Happy Feet One was adorable with Elijah Wood, who couldn’t sing, but he could dance. He could tap his feet, and it was delightful. This one is not nearly as delightful. Elijah Wood plays Mumble, but is now a dad, and his kid goes off. This one just really didn’t work very well; it’s too scary for kids. I don’t know why people feel they have to make sequels.  I suppose because they make so much money in the first one that they have to do a second one, but I think we all probably would’ve been slightly happier with just the memory of the first one. The stuff with the krill made no sense; in the old days, this would have been considered a stoner movie, these days just a dud. I think two stars at most, I’m afraid.
