March of the Penguins really isn't a comedy, its a nature documentary.


Maybe the waddling penguins were funny.


You guys don't even know this movie. I saw it, I can comment. This was no children's movie - it was deep. It was powerful. I didn't just learn about penguins -- I learned about myself. These magnificent, wretched creatures, who look like they're wearing tuxedos....As far as penguin movies go, in the rich genre of penguin films, this was the Citizen Kane. And believe me, I KNOW penguin films.

The Citizen Kane of Penguin movies. Very classic. You're right I had no idea what it was and just assumed it was the next installment of Madagascar or some other animated cartoon. ;-)

and to wharf: i understand your point, but i don't think its fair to compare crapping in a pool to laughing at a G-rated comedy.

If he doesn't know better, it isn't his fault, but that doesn't mean everyone else who has paid money to see the movie should have to sit through a distraction like that. I mean, if he was kicked out then obviously he had to be very distracting.

My bad then. I assumed from this quote:

"He was laughing, but he really wasn't much louder than any of the other kids," she said.


That it was a kids comedy.

It goes to show you that journalists always always have an agenda and you just can't trust most of what you read.

Kids, whether they have CP or not, should not be taken to serious movies. Regardless of how well-behaved they are, they just can't behave in a movie theatre. Kids should only be taken to kids movies and they should be asked to leave a serious movie if they are laughing and there are adults there trying to pay attention. This is the parents' fault.

I've been in theaters where people have been loud and obnoxious before, we've all been there. This is just disgusting though...March of the Penguins? What the hell do they think is going to happen?!? Kids are going to laugh, and be annoying, and bitch, and moan, and cry, spill sodas all over the place etc...

It's not worse than when you go to see some movie and you have 5-6 grown people giving play by play comment at normal volume 5 rows behind you that leads to about 85 full head turns from in front of them.

Also, this is total BS I might add, but that's neither here nor there.
