Plot Summary

In the Antarctic, every March since the beginning of time, the quest begins to find the perfect mate and start a family. This courtship will begin with a long journey - a journey that will take them hundreds of miles across the continent by foot, in freezing cold temperatures, in brittle, icy winds and through deep, treacherous waters. They will risk starvation and attack by dangerous predators, under the harshest conditions on earth, all to find true love.

I have already seen this move and love it. I do not wish to rent it. In fact, I looked it up for the purpose of buying the move. However, unfortunately, it is not for sale. I guess I'll have to buy it elsewhere.

Great Movie

This is definitly a movie would recomend to any person who has any space in the heart for nature. I know that renting isn't every body's favorit, there are movies I would rather buy than rent, but this a movie that was made for renting. Rent it.

Good movie, bad choices

its a good movie, but boring if you don't like penguins we should be able to buy OR rent movies come on, itunes!
