This heartwarming animated tale--reportedly inspired by a National Geographic documentary--follows the exploits of a shy penguin, Hubie, who is hopelessly enamored with Marina, but must compete with the ultra macho, puffed up Drake, who wants her to be his life mate. In order to win her, one of them must present her with a suitable pebble. Hubie finds a doozy of an emerald-like stone to give her, but before he can deliver it, the wicked Drake pushes him into the roiling sea and Hubi is swept away. Eventually Hubie is captured by traders. He must make it home within 10 days or Drake will claim his beloved Mariana. Songs are sung, action ensues, and ultimately, happiness prevails. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

This is a cute, family oriented movie which holds the message that it isn't the material things one person can give to another that matters; it's the person, what they're willing to give to another of themself, and what's in a person's heart. While I really did enjoy the movie (I'm 58 years young.) I could have done without the subtitles at the bottom of the movie. They were very distracting.
Here we go again...This is an odd film. I think that if the entire voice cast hadn't overacted, this would be much better of a film. I mean seriously, Goodness Glaciers? But all in all, this one is much less a waste of time than one might think. Some things are a little "um, what?", but I found it enjoyable. Definately recommended, though I wouldn't call it required viewing.
