The March of the Penguins

Has anybody seen this movie?

It's a documentary narrated by Morgan Freeman.

Absolutely charming and beautifully filmed in Antarctica. Follows the journey of the emperor penguin, their mating habits and how they bring up their young. It's a really fascinating (and often funny) tale.

It does sound interesting, yeah. I might check it out .

And I'll agree-those baby penguins they show in the commercials are just ... So freakin' adorable. Awww .

I really want to see this!

So far it's only playing at the Mayan, which is the most uncomfortable place to see a film, but I will brave it.

It looked interesting, but at $7.50 per person, things suddenly aren't interesting anymore.....

My hairdresser said she went and really enjoyed it. I don't know if I have THAT much free time, as I don't get out to see many of the movies I've wanted to see... Such is life...

This came in at #10 at the box office this weekend raking in $4.2 million.
Very impressive for this type of film.

I bet it opened on a relatively small number of screens as well.

I think it had the 2nd highest per screen avg behind "Wedding Crashers".
Its supposed to get a much wider release this Friday.
Its already made like 16 Million in limited release, with basically no advertising.
Seems like it could be this year's "My Big fat Greek Wedding".

I saw this film when it was in limited release about a month ago in VA ! (one of the good things of living in the DC metro area!)

Albeit a short film 80minutes, it's great and truly entertaining!

I just read an article about the film on how the French version has French actor playing the parts of the penquins (I'm not kidding, maybe I can find the article again, it was on Yahoo last week!!)

American audiences didn't like humans voicing the penquins so a narration was written (voiced by Morgan Freeman) and as well as a new score.

My sister watched it yesterday! She enjoyed it but she didn't understand how the penquins wouldn't protect the babies from that bird when they would protect one baby from a grieving mother.

Oh well!!!

I highly recommend this picture!!
