    Earnest messages about bad climate change and good parenting skills have been replaced by a we-all-share-a-planet sense of fun that's more "Finding Nemo" than National Geographic.

    Although it's set on the same frozen continent, Happy Feet Two is worlds away from its predecessor.

    This new round of toe-tapping musical numbers from the penguin population is shot in eye-poppingly gorgeous 3D.

    Pitt and Damon deliver the best lines (wisecracks about the food chain, predators and evolution, etc.) but their characters also represent most of us.

    In some ways, it's a more grown-up story than Happy Feet, with more complicated messages delivered in subtler ways.

    For me, Happy Feet Two is pretty thin soup. The animation is bright and attractive, the music gives the characters something to do, but the movie has too much dialogue in the areas of philosophy and analysis.

Along wit h its top notch voice acting the film succeeds and is a rare sequel that I think is better than the fist mostly because of it just being so adorable. I give this fantastic movie 88%.
