A cheerful and frequently amusing bit of nonsense, which certainly will provoke children into giggles. The film does not measure up to March of the Penguins or Happy Feet, both Oscar-winning efforts. Nor is it trying to.

Not only are LaBeouf and Bridges terrific, but Jon Heder is hilarious as surfing fowl Chicken Joe. And Zooey Deschanel is saucy fun as penguin lifeguard Lani.

The entertaining new film from Sony Pictures Animation is a nice surprise, and the rare mainstream American kid film.
