IMDb profile

Farce of the Penguins is a 2007 direct-to-DVD parody film of the 2005 film March of the Penguins. The motion picture features Samuel L. Jackson as narrator, with the two main characters being voiced by Bob Saget, who also wrote and directed the movie, and Lewis Black. Several of Saget's former Full House co-stars also lent their voices to the film. Additional voices were provided by Tracy Morgan, Christina Applegate, James Belushi, Whoopi Goldberg, Dane Cook, Mo'Nique, and more. ThinkFilm describes Farce of the Penguins as the story of "one penguin's search for love while on a 70-mile trek with his libidinous buddies on their way to a hedonistic mating ritual." Despite what the poster suggests, Farce of the Penguins is not an animated feature; it uses real footage of penguins. Bob Saget stated on The Howard Stern Show on January 29, 2007, Late Night with Conan O'Brien on January 30, 2007 and on Tom Green Live that he originally wanted to simply redub the documentary March of the Penguins but did not receive permission from the filmmakers.

Plot

Samuel L. Jackson narrates the story about a group of male penguins that make a 70 mile trek to go to their breeding grounds where women are waiting to have sex with them. These penguins include Carl (Bob Saget) and Jimmy (Lewis Black) two friends who talk about relationships and other things as they meet new people including Marcus (Tracy Morgan), a penguin who likes to kid around and brag about his huge penis, and Steve the Owl (Jonathan Katz), who gives Carl advice on his life in a Freudian kind of way while billing him for the two quick sessions. Meanwhile Melissa (Christina Applegate) and Vicky (Mo'Nique) argue about men and other women who bother them as they wait for their mates to arrive to the breeding grounds.
