We had Lay’s nephews over Saturday night, and this is what they wanted to see. Lay and I decided we quite enjoyed the movie. The story has something for adults and kids, it doesn’t take itself to seriously, and it is one of the most exciting movies to watch. The waves and water look incredible, but more importantly it has heart and a great message like all movies should have. It is very different than Happy Feet. The only thing similar about them is the fact that the main characters are penguins, which I got over in the first 10 seconds, because there have been many movies that feature similar species as main characters, and that never bothered me.
