Cast: Ed Helms


A coming-of-age story about an Adélie penguin named Steve, who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to find a life partner, build a suitable nest, and start a family. The adorable penguin finds a mate and is left, as all the males are, to sit on the eggs until they hatch.

When they do, his mate returns and the two of them struggle to keep their young ones safe from killer whales and leopard seals in the harsh, but beautiful environment in one of the most unforgiving, stunning places on Earth.

  • 1 star "Just terrible. Watch David Attenborough on BBC/Planet Earth to learn something. Watch this movie to watch how Disney exploits anything to make money. Ed Helms makes it worse."
  • 5 stars "Familiar with challenges & environment of penguins from the "Blue Planet" series. However, humorous dialog of Steve added a great touch of a Penguins life. RH"
  • 5 stars "Its soooooo CUTE!!!! There was several funny moments too. I'm glad that I can relate to Steve(the main penguin), I'm rather clumsy too lol"
