Sometimes a Man's Gotta Do What a Child's Gotta Do

Happy Feet Two premieres today and I’m all over it.

If you saw the first Happy Feet movie and loved it as I did you’re trying to figure out a way to call in stupid this afternoon and head to the local cineplexathon. If you didn’t like it I understand, you’ll be at work bemoaning the fact that your 401-k is now a 201-k and thinking other grown-up thoughts.

If you live long enough you become an adult. It’s a biological thing. Being a grown-up is a psychological thing and sometimes you have to unzip that grown-up suit and let that runnin’ wide-open kid out. Happy Feet does that for me.

Plus, you can’t pass up Robin Williams as the Mexican penguin and there are two new characters. Matt Damon and Brad Pitt are the voices of two krill (little bottom-feeding shrimp-like creatures) and early reviews say the come close to stealing the show.

So, to you grown-ups who’ll be at work all afternoon, don’t steal any office supplies. To those of you who like me are scrounging in the couch for popcorn money, I’ll see you there. And to you semi-grown-ups who’ll at least have the good sense to go to the movie but can’t stop thinking about work, TURN OFF THOSE DAMNED CELL PHONES!!

Have a great weekend! See you Monday.
