March of the Penguins

Rating = B-

This movie has lots of swell pictures of penguins and some very interesting facts about the penguin mating, child care, and weaning cycle. Unfortunately, there is not quite enough depth or detail to sustain its feature length — it would have been better as an hour show on the Discovery Channel or in IMAX format at the science museum. We learn nothing about the rest of the penguin's life cycle or whether there are other mating sites for other flocks within this species. We also get a little too much talk of love when what's probably at work is evolutionary instinct.
