Us Rating: **1/2

Adorable penguins that sing and dance can't save this frenetic, star-studded sequel. Mumble (Elijah Wood) is now a tap master and dad -- but his son hasn't inherited the performer gene, so he runs away in shame. The action takes a turn for the threatening when penguin nation gets trapped (avalanche from global warming!) and Mumble recruits enemy elephant seals to help. It all feels a little too long and preachy. However, Brad Pitt's and Matt Damon's plucky crustaceans hilariously riff off each other and duet on "We Are the Champions"! Spinoff?
