What's sad is I loved the book when I was a kid.
It's sweet without being saccharine and illustrated by Robert Lawson who did 'Ben and me', 'Rabbit Hill' and 'The Story of Ferdinand'.
I haven't seen the movie but at some point I'm sure I'll see it and be disappointed.
On the same point I put $9.99 signs on The Hangover 2.
Jim ( the no talented / never took an acting lesson in his life - and if he did the coach should be shot / couldn't deliver a straight line if it was handed it to him - tied to a 2 X 4 / should be only allowed to do kiddy shows on a PBS station at 6 in the morning / if he was just offered the part of the second turd to the left in the barn seen in Richard The Third - Shakespeare would rise from the dead just to rewrite the whole play / wouldn't know a good part if his Hollywood hair stylise held a mirror up to the back of his size 157" head and said "Whatcha think" / wouldn't know a good time - if a bare ass-ed woman was dancing on a table singing that old Gershwin tune " Here is your good time" / will probably be a three time loser as soon as he marries again / probably thinks hes the next Jerry Lewis - witch is fine - I cant stand Jerry / did I mention "No Talent" ) Carry is in it
That being said ---- I love Penguins -- Rock Hoppers - Gentoo's - Chinstrap's - Macaroni's - even the very cute Little Blue ones
