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

Even minor Carrey is undeniably entertaining.

Kid-friendly, if not exactly potty-trained.

Popper is just a pooper.

In a desert of "family films," it stands out as a surprising oasis.

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

Look out for perky Brit Ophelia Lovibond, who provides a perfectly pleasing performance as Popper's alliteration-prone assistant, Pippi, who peppers her pronouncements with a profusion of p's.

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

Director Waters, who knows his way around young adult fare having directed such films as the 2003 version of "Freaky Friday" and "The Spiderwick Chronicles," again shows a keen eye for finding humor in everyday life

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.

Much of the plotting is perfunctory but the slap-stick is fun and Carrey, toning down his usually mugging, shrewdly lets the penguins steal the show.

Sadly, this is a one-joke film which Carrey cannot keep afloat...

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.

Carrey can single-handedly kill a good comedy with his OTT shtick, but this time he reins it in and the film is all the better for it.

This is Jim at his most Carrey-esque, back in Ace Ventura territory.
