Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
An animated family movie about penguins -- in the wake of "March of the Happy Feet," they're the Angelina Jolie of animals, both cute and admired everywhere. Plus, it's about surfing.

Charlotte Observer - Lawrence Toppman
Has its own peculiar, loose-knit kind of charm.

New York Magazine (Vulture) - David Edelstein
Don't worry, parents, only you--and not your 5-year-old--will get that the chicken's stoned out of his gourd.

The Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt
A cheerful and frequently amusing bit of nonsense, which certainly will provoke children into giggles. The film does not measure up to "March of the Penguins" or "Happy Feet," both Oscar-winning efforts. Nor is it trying to.

Variety - Unnamed
Every bit as entertaining as the early Christopher Guest efforts.
