Penguins. Nothin' but penguins.

I can't think of a better film to watch on a hot summer weekend, in a frigid, air-conditioned movie theater.

Although it goes on just a hair too long, the story of the penguin's trail of tears is fascinating. And just when you think it can't get any cuter, out come the baby penguins.

What I like about this film is that, like all good nature docs, it's not without dramatic moments (death!), pratfalls and physical comedy (baby penguiins on ice!), and moments of transcendent beauty.
