  • Adventure-loving house painter Mr. Popper (Jim Carrey) contends with the problem of having too many penguins in director Mark S. Waters' adaptation of author Richard Atwater's beloved children's book. Shortly after penning a letter to a team of Arctic explorers, Mr. Popper is surprised to receive a penguin in the mail. Later, after making his mischievous new pal a cozy new home in the freezer, the hapless Mr. Popper comes into possession of a playful female penguin as well. Before long Mr. Popper finds himself surrounded by a growing family of the flightless birds, and begins training them to perform in a traveling show dubbed Popper's Performing Penguins. With each new town the show travels to, pandemonium is quick to follow.

  • Critic Reviews
    "[L]ove conquers all and the cuteness of the penguins carries the day."
    Wall Street Journal

    "[A]n amiable movie that's suitable family fare....Carrey hits the right notes, dialing it down and letting the penguins take center stage."
    USA Today

    "[T]he penguins are perfectly suited for stealing scenes and hearts as they waddle around and completely take over this farce."
    Los Angeles Times

    "The birds are great -- they do some very cute things via CGI..."
    Movieline

    3.5 stars out of 5 -- "MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS has hatched a refreshing, hilarious and heartwarming movie for everyone."
    Box Office

    "Credit Carrey for finding funny and silly ways to clown around with his avian co-stars....Waters keeps things moving briskly..."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "[Carrey] brings the movie something beyond his familiar nerve-jangled comic spirit: He infuses it with conviction and a hidden sweet spot of warmth."
    Entertainment Weekly
