Do you know what I do for you people?
Do you know what it’s like to go from A Troll in Central park to this?
This is the worst. I know I said that last time, but this movie is so bad that not only did Bluth and Goldman demand their names be removed from the final product, and left the company they’d founded in the dust. This is the tragic end to the saga of Sullivan Bluth Studios. From the lofty goals and high standards of their beginnings, to a mess of pandering and shoddy quality, abandoned by its leaders. This is the worst.

|A curious lack of Bluth Sparkles in this movie, but lots of bubbles to make up for it.|
|REALLY, MGM? 90 years to brag about, and this makes the top of the DVD box?|
- I identified Drake’s home as Snake Mountain because he’s a villain, but it does look more like Castle Grayskull.
|Which is better than Hubie's home, Dick Island.|
- In addition to his other villainous attributes, Drake has dark feathers all over his face while the good penguins have white facial highlights, a fact that did not escape Roger Ebert’s notice.
- Drake dies in this one twice. First, Hubie kicks him off a mountain. Not accidentally, either. Specifically with intent to kill him. Then he comes back, and a rock falls on him. They don’t cut away, either. It’s all right there. It’s a super-dark ending for such a fluffy nothing of a movie.
- Adelie penguins do give pebbles to each other as part of a courtship thing. They also engage in more rape and necrophilia than any other bird species on Earth. The latter is not shown in the movie, but based on some of Drake’s dialogue and body language, I won’t rule out the former.
|The more obscure the movie, the more likely I am to find bizarre fanart, I'm learning.|
