Penguins and Fairies and Leftists, oh my

On a recent Daily Show, Lewis Black did a Back in Black commentary on the movie Happy Feet. This film has been criticized by "newsmen" as forgettable as Glenn Beck, labeled leftist propaganda, but continues to rake in money. (I want to see it. I've got a thing for animated flicks.)

One criticism was of the perceived anti-corporate propaganda. Another was the movie's perceived gay-ness. See the clip of Black taking them down several pegs, and try to laugh as long as I did.

I don't know why teaching some positive values is such a big issue. The 1992, environmentally concious film Fern Gully: The Last Rainforest certainly was full to the brim with propaganda. And fairies.
