About the Movie

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: Carrey, who is something of a CGI peacock himself, is the best thing about the film, which should delight young audiences even as it diverts their adult handlers. – Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, Jun 17, 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

Fresh: The best thing about Mr Popper's Penguins is that it makes no discernible sense. – Daily Telegraph (UK), Aug 4, 2011

A movie for all

I thought this movie was great.. It was cute and funny.. A movie for all ages..

Solid feel good family movie, worth a watch

This is one of those formula movies, but done well. Jim Carey does a nice job. In this movie, he throttles it back a bit from his usual vulgar self (think Pet Detective), and comes across pretty genuine as he has done in other movies.

I'm not sure why this movie was panned by some of the critics, but maybe thats why I liked it. Walked in with realistic expectations. Great feel good ending, and well done. Pleasant surprise. That and penguins are cool.


really cool and funny
