Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: A mildly amusing specimen of a genre that has produced some of the most unspeakable atrocities of recent cinema.
- A.O. Scott, New York Times, Thursday, June 16, 2011
Fresh: "Mr. Popper's Penguins," a mildly amusing flight of fancy for the family crowd, is far better for its penguins than its Popper.
- Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Thursday, June 16, 2011
Fresh: The director, Mark Waters, moves things briskly along and lets the charming absurdity of penguin behavior rise to its inherently good-natured heights.

Just because is with Jim Carrey, doesn't mean that it's funny.

Cast: Jim Carrey, Carla Gugino, Madeline Carroll, Angela Lansbury, Ophelia Lovibond, Jeffrey Tambor, Philip Baker Hall, James Tupper, Clark Gregg, Dominic Chianese, Kelli Barrett Director: Mark Waters Summary: In this live-action adaptation of Richard and Florence Atwater's classic children's book, Jim Carrey takes on the titular role of Mr. Popper, a businessman who inherits a small flock of penguins and must transform his Manhattan apartment into an arctic habitat. My Thoughts: "I enjoyed the movie. I thought it was charming and funny. Jim Carrey is a favorite and it's hard not to find him entertaining in any film he does. Although I do think the penguins may have outshined his performance. They were adorable. It's a great film for the family and kids."
