If you found the tap-dancing penguins of Happy Feet odd, then the surfing penguins of Surf's Up will prove equally confusing. This sub-par CGI toon (by Sony Pictures) is a basically a remake of old surf documentries like Endless Summer, only with penguins instead of people. The voice cast is fresh. (Shia LaBeouf, Jeff Bridges, Zooey Deschanel, Jon Heder and James Woods head it up.) But unless you've got a burning desire to see what surf legends Kelly Slater and Rob Machado look like as penguins, the film has only minor appeal.85 minutes PG.
