... once the penguins arrive, it devolves into penguin poop jokes and predictable plot turns.

Kid-friendly, if not exactly potty-trained.

Popper is just a pooper.

grown-ups will quickly become annoyed with the squawking, the poorly conceived penguin names and the copious amount of penguin poop

familiarity only adds to the feeling that this is just another Carrey movie

Hollywood might be trying to tell us that the answer to a midlife crisis is pets, not Prozac, but those behind the camera could certainly do with a little something to perk them up a bit.

The laughter is intermittent and is ultimately overwhelmed by a wave of sentimentality.
August 5, 2011
Sadly, this is a one-joke film which Carrey cannot keep afloat...
August 5, 2011
A saccharine family-oriented comedy, which hammers home the central message about parental responsibility and love triumphing over adversity with all the tenderness of a nasty case of frostbite.

It's not an awful film but, in the end, it's nothing much at all.

Remember Adam Sandler in Click? Robin Williams in Hook? Eddie Murphy in The Haunted Mansion? Then congratulations, you've already seen this movie.

As family entertainment for the summer holidays it isn't bad, and Britain's Ophelia Lovibond does well as Popper's perky assistant, though Carrey is fundamentally subdued.

It's not an unwatchable film, it's just that, like the flightless birds, it never manages to take off.
August 3, 2011
Holy mother of pearl, talk about superficial claptrap!

Like a bottle of cola that's lost its fizz, Mr Popper's Penguins is flat and sickly sweet.

Carrey fans will be let down by the rubber-faced one playing straight man to a pack of penguins. While kids may find the plot p-p-past its sell-by date.
July 15, 2011
Overall Carrey is wasted in this film, which is overtly geared towards children with its broad humour and thick sentiment.

(This) lightweight piece of family fluff will be amusing only to people who think the idea of a penguin pooping is hilarious. So under 10s, basically.

The frontrunner for worst film of Carrey's career.
