Moulin Rouge with penguins


Just finished watching the above on cable... The Husband had it down. "It's 'Moulin Rouge' with penguins."

But that's a compliment, actually. Besides the fact that there's the obvious dancing and Nicole Kidman (voicing the main character's mother), it's really a well-done mash-up musical. You'll remember the lush visuals in Moulin Rouge, the breaking-into-song that somehow didn't seem completely ridiculous within the plot, the luuuuv story... Now subtract Kidman's long legs and add fuzzy people with beaks and stumpy legs. See?

If you can resist a small, round, fuzzy bird wiggling his rump while another is rapping, "Don't push me/ 'Cause I'm close to the -- Edge," you ain't right.
