Movie Review: March of the Penguins

The “suprise” movie Jenn and I watched on our anniversary date was the documentary March of the Penguins. I say surprise because we snuck into the theatre after Wedding Crashers. Here again, is my abbreviated review:

1) Morgan Freeman’s narration
2) Cute baby penguins

1) Pacing. Much too slow.
2) Our print of the film. Much too grainy.
3) The back speakers weren’t working in our theatre.

No opinion:
1) Was this a kids’ movie or not? I don’t think I’d take any child under 8 to see it.

I’d rent this movie on DVD or watch it on PBS, or potentially even see it again (paying this time) in a better theatre. I have a feeling it was a better movie than I’m giving it credit for.
