    Surf's up (yeah, more penguins!)

    Went to see it yesterday, there was a grand total of me, my bf and an other person in the theater. I sincerely hope this movie doesn't flop because it is awesome!
    The animation is good, the "acting" is good, it made me laugh out loud several times and there are waves, perfect sandy beaches and palm trees. The mockumentary aspect of it is very successful too.

    "Dude! You gotta try this blowhole thing!"

    Yeah, this was a really good movie. For a bunch of computerized penguins, the characters were surprisingly subtle and genuine. The only flaw, in my opinion, is that it was so darn short.

    the ad for it does not do the movie much justice I haven't seen the film yet

    but for the ad it comes across as trying to be "hip" in the cliche way

    cliche 1: surfing
    Cliche 2: the outsider
    cliche 3: penguins (not a cliche in themselves but the amount of penguin movies lately ok 3 or 4 but it is still alot.

    I may go see it, seeing as SHrek 3 is suppose to be only so so.

    Sure it comes off as cliche at first, and the ad doesn't do it justice. It's really a great little movie. It's probably destined to be underrated and ignored, which is a shame. It's faaar better than Shrek 3, though. Shrek 3 was like one of those half-assed direct-to-video sequels, only this series is still lucrative enough to release it in theaters.
