It seems like an easy concept for a comedy – gather a load of penguin footage, round up a few available actors and comedians, stick them in a recording booth and give them a script that spoofs last year’s biggest documentary sensation. Oh, and hire Samuel L Jackson to give it some Morgan Freeman-alike gravitas.
That’s exactly what Bob Saget has done, giving the likes of Jason Alexander, Whoopi Goldberg, Dane Cook, Jason Biggs, Lewis Black, James Belushi a gag laden script to make some Animal Magic over the frosty waddlers.
The result- based on these two trailers (one for family audiences and one uncensored swear-a-thon), is a lot of fairly easy sex jokes and commentary that would have Johnny Morris rolling in his grave. Check out the footage here.
