A lovely animated feature for kids (spoilers)..Kinda
18 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well as I am 15, I didn't think too highly of this movie, I bought it because I'm a big Duff fan, but to be honest with you, I only gave it 7 out of 10 because of Hilary duff and Haylie duff being in it, otherwise it would get a 4 or 5, it's a really fun kids cartoon, but that's just it, it's just a kids cartoon. I can't complain much as it isn't meant for my age group.

The good side of this film is that it has a warm feeling to it, being a Christmas movie, and it being a movie about friendship. To sum the movie up, it's about two penguins, Crystal (hilary duff) who's the sweet and innocent penguin, who is to become the next queen as she is the oldest between her and her sister, and Lucinda who hatched second, she gets jealous of Crystal but when Crystal goes 'in search of Santa' Lucinda tries to stop her, but ends up having to go with her. They have no other choice but to stick together as they face pirates and big predators..and an annoying little elf. They set aside their differences and become friends. . . . If I'm making this sound like some sort of spectacular movie, don't stop reading just yet. It has some bad quality scenes, the animation isn't all that good in some parts of the film, but that doesn't bother everyone right?, and who said it was meant to be a blockbuster hit anyway?

The best advice I give you is to not take it too seriously, and buy it for your kids, or if you're not a parent, buy it and expect it to be rubbish, then you won't be disappointed.
