I loved this movie. It was wonderful and sorry to the "evil left wing conspiracy!" crowd, but you have to have a villian or a crisis or there is no point to having a story. Would you rather have it be a killer whale who has a saw to cut circles in the ice?

Actually there is a rather dark undertone to the ending. The humans are only interested in saving the penquins after they become amusing (and dance). A real issue for environmentalist and scientists is getting people interested in saving species that aren't cute/performers. Everyone wants to help baby seals and dolphins, but who is going to jump all over gulf sturgeon or the puritan tiger beetle?
