Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that kids will definitely want to see this appealing animated film. The movie includes themes of humans intruding on natural habitats but avoids the heavy-duty questions of how to solve the problem. Some of the chase sequences and elephant seal scenes might be scary for younger kids. Also, racial stereotypes come into play: Latin-inspired penguins are caricatured as party-loving animals, and an African-American-type penguin comes across as an oversexed, fundamentalist preacher. Still, the movie's themes of social acceptance and embracing your own uniqueness shine through.

Sexual Content

The penguins must sing a unique "heart song" to find a mate. Mumble bumps into another penguin's private parts. Reference to male penguins not wanting to hug each other. Some innuendoes from a male penguin about female penguins wanting him.


The penguins are attacked by scary elephant seals. They must face cold and blizzards.


"Freakin'," reference to kissing penguins' butts.

Social Behavior

Despite the fact that the main character is initially ostracized for being different, ultimately, the message of embracing your own uniqueness shines through. The movie also has strong environmental messages and themes.
