Mr. Popper's Penguin Movie Review
Jim Carrey stars anew at his comic best in the hilarious and heartfelt family film “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” based on the beloved children’s book of the same title by Richard andFlorenceAtwater.Carrey plays Thom Popper, a workaholic New York businessman who has neglected the woman he loves and his children, in order to pursue his real estate career with a relentless drive.His life is suddenly and dramatically turned around when six penguins are delivered to his apartment and he is forced to become their full-time caretaker. They are undeniably cute but inevitably cause chaos, gradually showing him what is really important in life. This heartwarming movie is actually perfect for Father's Day. Though the movie is not that faithful to the original children's book, the movie still was able to impart the lessons to it's viewers. The story is very entertaining for the whole family. It's funny and at the same time amusing for all ages. Jim Carrey once again appeared in the movie screen with his funny antics in a heartwarming type of movie. Director Mark Waters did a wonderful direction from the cast even unto the penguins! The use of penguins in teaching a lesson to someone is something new to many of us. Trust me you'll love the penguins! Must see movie for the whole family!
Mr. Popper's Penguins is distributed by 20th Century Fox and is NOW SHOWING across all cinemas.
