He's charming, he's notorious, he's charismatic and he's bound and determined not to get caught taking yet another sick day off school. He's Ferris Bueller and, as played by Matthew Broderick, he'll charm your pants off in this John Hughes film about high school hijinks involving a classic Ferrari and a high school principal who won't stop until he gets his man.
Son of Memphis (Hugh Jackman) and Norma Jean (Nicole Kidman), Mumble (Elijah Wood), a sweet little ball of penguin fluff has one big problem: no matter how hard he tries, he can’t sing a single note. In a world where every penguin attracts their soul mate through their own special heart-song, he cannot ever truly belong. But as it happens, Mumble is a brilliant tap-dancer! When he unleashes his deepest feelings, they don’t come from his beak…they pour out through his “happy feet.”
As he grows into a teenager who is keen to gain acceptance, he fails to graduate and is the last to lose his adolescent feathers…setting him further apart. But Mumble is curious about the world and not afraid of challenges thrown in his path.
Steve (Matthew Broderick), a suburban dad and Christmas enthusiast, leads a well-ordered, well-planned, and well-organized life. His new neighbor, Danny (Danny DeVito), is Steve's polar opposite: a big personality with big dreams, which have yet to materialize. But Danny's latest dream—to create the biggest holiday light display in the world, visible from outer space—is turning Steve's disciplined world into a chaotic nightmare.
