Happy Feet

I just watched Happy Feet on DVD. Did anybody see it in the theater?

I can see why it did so well in the theater ($384 million, worldwide):

Lots of dancing and fun moments

Great characters

Flawless models/animation/lighting/effects

Strong emotions

Moving story

They take you into very hopeless situations and always bring you out with enough satisfaction

The only negative:

It gets very preachy toward the end (this is a negative for most people but positive for some; definitely negative for me) and pulls you out of its own world into an evil version of our own.

Interesting side notes about the director:

George Miller - Creator and direct of Mad Max and Babe

He directed the Twilight Zone movie along with Steven Spielberg and two other cult director legends: Joe Dante (Gremlins, Small Soldiers) and John Landis (Blues Brothers, American Werewolf in London, Other SNL comedies)

This is his first animation

His next project is the Justice League of America movie
