Very corny but fun enough for its target audience.

Loosely based upon the children’s book of the same name by Richard & Florence Atwater in 1938, it took approximately 73 years for the release of the feature film. However, despite the very long awaited release and as cute and as child-friendly as it seemed to begin with, there were immediate impressions that it would have its fair share of clichés and corny concepts that wouldn’t make it one ... read more

Fluffy and nimbly-paced, but extremely generic

"Pull yourself together... Your house is full of penguins!"

After his work in the audacious sleeper I Love You Phillip Morris, 2011's Mr. Popper's Penguins finds legendary funny man Jim Carrey back in pure paycheque territory. Instead of a worthwhile vehicle for Carrey's dramatic and/or comedic chops, Mr. Popper's Penguins has Carrey playing second fiddle to CGI penguins and working... read more

Obviously, this is a kid's movie. However, they didn't seem to care adults would have to watch. While some movies have unrealistic portions in an unrealistic world, this one had an unrealistic premise, but tried to exist in a realistic world. The reason his father thinks that a gift of 6 penguins is a good one is never made clear, and his actions in keeping the penguins is nonsensical.

"A father sends his son penguins from Antarctica and his children become taken with them. Finding himself unable to properly care for them, the penguins are traded to the zoo but he later regrets the decision, steals the penguins back and frees them back in Antarctica with a promise to visit. Differs slightly from the book where instead of a zoo the penguins are sold to a circus with Mr. Popper finally coming to the conclusion that show business is no place for a penguin. There is of course the i"

“First, I'm giving 6/10 for the 6 penguins in the film :)

Totally inconsistent script. Nothing makes sense (from an adult's POV) and brings out too many questions as previously mentioned by another reviewer. While the movie might be seen by (mostly) kids, somewhere down the line, the script still has to make sense. It didn't. Acting performances were horrible, except for the penguins :)

OK, I'm biased, I adore penguins. Can you tell?- ^_^

An average movie

“To be honest, I wasn't sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Jim Carrey, I thought I should check it out. At first, it seemed to be one of those whacky comedies that Carrey used to make in the past but, as soon as those pinguins showed up, it became pretty obvious that it was just a rather underwhelming family feature. It might be entertaining for young kids (I doubt it though) but for any adult, the whole thing is just way too non-sensical. Why did his father send him a pinguin? Why does he suddenly decide to keep them? Why do his children think it's awesome to spend some time in a freezing apartment with some pinguins? I mean, even his ex-wife acts as if it is the greatest thing in the world. Basically, the premise was completely ridiculous and the fact tha” read more

"Relying too much on cringe comedy and designated heroes, it's still funny in parts, and Jim Carrey is always fun to watch."

"2.7 Jim Carrey elokuvassa, joka on verrattavissa Friedberg/Zeltser parivaljakon tuotoksiin. Yhtä ääliömäistä ja typerää lähinnä lapsille suunnattua kohellusta. Plussaa kuitenkin sympaattisista pingviineistä."
