Happy Feet 2 busts a move 

Animated penguin sequel continues the fun of the original

happy-feet-2.jpg
CGI dancing penguins re-interpret pop hits and hip hop classics in George Miller’s 3D sequel to his 2006 Happy Feet. Mumble (Elijah Wood) is all grown up and his and Gloria’s (Pink) son, Erik (Ava Acres), struggles to fit in---he can’t dance, just as Mumble couldn’t sing when he was a chick. When their rookery gets into a pickle, Mumble and Erik lead in its rescue. Even animated baby penguins are cute, but you kind of wish they’d leave some songs untouched; you know LL Cool J is passé when a fluff ball is covering him. Meanwhile, krill duo, Will (Brad Pitt) and Bill (Matt Damon), are going through their own existential crises---it may be a subplot to the penguins, but it’s far funnier to listen to two invertebrates contemplate moving up the food chain.
