Mr. Popper's Penguins Reviews
An almost complete waste of time, money, and talent, leading to a pointless overall end result, with no real message at all to anything. And as the penguins themselves are nothing but glorified cartoon characters without hardly a shred of actual penguin behaviour meaning that the poor kids that watch this won't even learn anything. Carrey is a fine comic talent with a very good sense of acting ability, but here he is lost in a script written by far too many different people for such a simple story, and yet this somehow feels like it was created by a soulless machine. It could be worse, but this was still always destined to fall flat.
I guess I would say that this is a nice family comedy. There are plenty of better films out there but just the fact that it has outrageously cute penguins who are trained so well is a feat in itself. I also got a huge kick out of how his secretary kept using P words with her lisp.
