This movie has become our family's favourite.
The first time my children (2 and 4 years old) saw this movie my 2 year old sat throught the entire movie, I think for the first time ever.
Sure, it got a little scary for the kids when the Seal and the Segals tried to eat Mumble. And it got very sad (for me) to see Mumble rejected but his peers and father. The story line at the end was a little weird, but you need a happy ending in a movie with the word Happy in the title, right?
As expected my 2 year old son was tap dancing for weeks and imitating Mumble saying "I am freezing ,I am freezing", and Mumble singing off key followed by Gloria shouting "That's not funny!!!".
My 4 year old actually thinks about the environmental issues mentioned in the movie.
And I have to say it's one of the few movies I enjoy watching over and over and over again with the children at their request....
