    Happy Feet Two Review

    I wasn’t the world’s biggest fan of ‘Happy Feet’, which had many good qualities but got bogged down by its ecological message (worthy though it was). The sequel still tries to tell too many stories, and winds up being a long string of dramatic climaxes, but it also plays to t...
