Yeah, everyone can keep their jokes about 'but its just a stupid movie about penguins', but it shows just how lame Hollywood is these days when people would RATHER watch a bunch of penguins just living life, then to see another explosive-filled mindless heartless piece of hollywood trash.

This documentary is beautiful, heart warming, romantic, shocking, sad, and even at times a bit ... read more

I don't think I could possibly understand the fascination with penguins to such a point that this was made into a major motion picture. This could have easily been translated into a one hour special on the Discovery channel.

An amazing documentary. The film itself is beautifully shot, but even more beautiful is the glimpse into the pulse of nature as embodied in the penguins, who journey far and away in the harshest climate in order to give life to their offspring. The film is more romantic than scientific, that is, the filmmakers attempts to give a human voice (literally as Morgan Freeman does the English narration t... read more

Description: In the Antarctic, every March since the beginning of time, the quest begins to find the perfect mate and start a family. This courtship will begin with a long journey - a journey that will take them hundreds of miles across the continent by foot, in freezing cold temperatures, in brittle, icy winds and through deep, treacherous waters. They will risk starvation and attack by dangerous predators, under the harshest conditions on earth, all to find true love. Director: Luc Jacquet. Coming from a French director, Luc Jacquet, the miraculous MARCH OF THE PENGUINS would have to be a love story. And so it is. The film explores the ma ... (more)

" A gorgeously shot documentary that show Penguin life for what it really is. Expect to see nature at it's most finest and brutal. While Morgan Freeman has a voice that is hard not to love in the English narrated version, the French original one is more poetic and beautiful and has a unique way of telling the story that is so much better.

"For a brief period of time, during the mid to late 2000s, for some reason that escapes me, penguins in movies were all the rage in cineplexes and movie theaters from all over the world, from the north pole to the south pole. And this inexplicable"march of the penguins" seemed to start in 2005 with the combined success of the scene stealing trio in the animated film Madagascar (which is not on this list primarily because I never got around to seeing it), and the surprise box office hit of this d"
