Mr. Popper’s Penguins

Directed by Mark Waters

Jim Carrey plays Tommy Popper, a successful real estate developer who lives for business hours and the big score. His winning streak comes to a screeching halt after he inherits a penguin from his late explorer father. After a misunderstanding, he acquires five more and faces a whole mess of problems that come with having flightless aquatic birds in a fancy NYC apartment. He’s also trying to land the biggest deal of his life and reconnect with his ex-wife and kids. Think the penguins will help out with both? You at least have to hand it to Mr. Popper’s Penguins for taking such an old-school approach—complete with penguin farts and a high-society party crashing—to the summer family comedy. And there are some sweet scenes as Popper’s heart thaws and he learns a lesson or two about what really matters. Quite an accomplishment for a movie filled with pooping penguins.
