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.

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 the world. Basically, the premise was completely ridiculous and the fact that i” read more

“Wouldn't normally watch stuff like this, but it had Jim Carrey in(who is hilarious in everything!) and so I watched it and it actually turned out to be good, and I enjoyed watching it, especially with the family. Combines Jim Carrey's humour with some good old family fun!” 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."

"July 28 Jim Carrey is the reason I saw this. It wasn't bad, but it really wasn't anything great. If Jim Carrey wasn't in this movie then I wouldn't have seen it."

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

"REWATCHED @ Blu-ray "Pull yourself together... Your house is full of penguins!" I saw it for the second time some days before Christmas I believe, but now I've already watched it the third time. This time because my girlfriend came over and wanted to see it. But I don't mid that. I like this film. Because of the penguins. I love penguins. Without the penguins this film would be nothing. Everytime the penguins ain't involved the film clearly struggles, and Jim Carrey is starting to get to old"

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 to remember. Having said that there were neither high nor low expectations for Mr. Popper’s Penguins, it was simply just going into a film that may have had its weaknesses but it was just a bit of fun that was worth your time.

Quite frankly, any film involving relationships and personal bonds between humans and small animals is incredibly cute and appealing for children, but considerin” read more
