Plot Summary

Chill out with the funniest family comedy of the year! Jim Carrey stars as Tom Popper, a successful businessman who’s clueless when it comes to the really important things in life...until he inherits six “adorable” penguins, each with its own unique personality. Soon Tom’s rambunctious roommates turn his swank New York apartment into a snowy winter wonderland — and the rest of his world upside-down.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The director, Mark Waters, moves things briskly along and lets the charming absurdity of penguin behavior rise to its inherently good-natured heights. – Bruce Diones, New Yorker, Jun 27, 2011

Rotten: Why is Jim Carrey standing around watching penguins be funny? Why isn't he in a movie where Jim Carrey is funny? – Tom Long, Detroit News, Jun 17, 2011

Rotten: [Carrey's] always "on," even when the character is supposed to be off; by the end of the movie, there isn't a piece of scenery that doesn't bear his teethmarks. – Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, Jun 17, 2011

Fresh: Mark Waters plants his camera and mostly lets Jim Carrey work his comedic schtick (and, thankfully, his dramatic chops) in Mr. Popper's Penguins. – Simon Foster,, Jun 30, 2011

Great Family Movie

Jim was great! He did not have the pressure of over acting, he added to the movie but did not become the only character, he just went along with the story. Something for everyone in the family. Not to many movies that I can say that for. Highly recommend for family night

It was light hearted fun

I never thought I could get a laugh out of a penguin waking up Jim Carey's character. Pipa was fun too!
It was light & easy cool & breezy.

light funny and clean
