We gave it a B-

Happy Feet is an animated tale about a young penguin who yearns to tap-dance, and its soundtrack offers some toe-tapping moments in the form of a new funk track from Prince, ”The Song of the Heart.” Unfortunately, a mash-up of ”Kiss” and ”Heartbreak Hotel” featuring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman is strictly for the birds.
