Happy Feet will make you warm all over; DVD.

Byline: SIMON KUKURUZOVIC

HAPPY FEET (U)

Also available to buy pounds 18.99.

HAPPY FEET is a feelgood, computer-animated musical comedy about a misfit penguin's quest to find his place in a world that doesn't understand him.

The star voices include Robin Williams, Elijah Wood, Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman and George Miller's film warms the cockles of your heart with its predictable though extremely enjoyable rites-of-passage story, interspersed with some funky musical interludes.

Epic scenes of the penguins battling against the elements take the breath away. Equally impressive are the Busby Berkeley inspired song-and-dance numbers, including the centrepiece sequence to the toe-tapping Boogie Wonderland which is a triumph of choreography and swooping camera movements. *****

THE HOLIDAY (12)

Also available to buy pounds 19.99.

HOLIDAY is a corny comedy starring Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet and Jude Law that will appeal to hopeless romantics.

The journey of self-discovery, which bears an uncanny similarity to Bridget Jones's Diary, centres on an insecure media heroine prone to bouts of self-pity and tears and a caddish love interest who breaks her heart. A saccharine, festive finale will leave viewers feeling either warm and fuzzy, or slightly nauseous, *****

JACKASS NUMBER TWO (18)

Also available to buypounds 19.99.

WARNING: The stunts in this movie were performed by professionals, so neither you nor your dumb little buddies should attempt anything from this movie."

Prefaced by almost the same tongue-in-cheek disclaimer as the first film, Jackass Number Two welcomes back Johnny Knoxville and his daredevil pals from the outrageous MTV show as they attempt another ridiculous and potentially dangerous array of stunts.

Extras include an actor's commentary, featurettes, uncut additional segments, deleted scenes, additional segments, out-takes, Karazy music video, uncut VMA spots, photo gallery, and theatrical trailer*****

EXTRAS - THE COMPLETE SECOND SERIES (15)

To buy pounds 21.99.

BACKGROUND artiste Andy Millman (Ricky Gervais) continues his quest for stardom, with more hindrance than help from his agent Darren Lamb (aka Warwick University graduate Stephen Merchant), in the second series of the hit BBC sitcom, co-starring Ashley Jensen as Andy's hapless best friend Maggie. Guest stars in the six episodes are Chris Martin, Ben Stiller, Samuel L Jackson, Orlando Bloom, David Bowie and Robert De Niro. A box set including both series is also available.
