Singing leeches? Color me intrigued.


They're singing, among other things, "Don't Worry, Be Happy." Need I say more?


Yeah, the Flushed Away title SO suggested toilet or sewer stuff that I had to wonder about it.

Of course, since I have no kids, I can just keep wondering, never being forced to see this stuff.

I did hear good things about Happy Feet though ;)


My friend loved Happy Feet (granted, she took her son -- she didn't choose to see it herself), but I was rolling my eyes the whole time.

There are some good kids' movies, though. Pixar stuff is brilliant, like Finding Nemo -- although when I play the DVD at home, I skip the opening scene when Nemo's mother and sibling-eggs are all eaten by a barracuda. It is never again mentioned and adds nothing whatsoever to the plot. Disney movies just have to include a parental death at some point, so they must have wanted to get it out of the way right off the bat. ;-)
I also loved Toy Story 1 and 2 -- great fun for us older folks to remember all the old toys we had.

Marie desJardins

My 15-year-old daughter says this movie is the saddest movie she's ever seen -- just too many people (penguins) being mean too each other, and too many sad things happening. (This is my sensitive child who wept the whole way through "Spirited Away," and who I had to take ou of the theater partway through "Babe: Pig in the City" -- then go back in at the very end to prove that everything would, in fact, turn out OK...)

Not our favorite.
