Cute and charming if forgettable

I was kind of interested in seeing Mr Popper's Penguins despite its somewhat lukewarm reception. I found it wasn't a bad film, there are some charming and funny moments with a good cast, but at the end of the day it is rather bland and forgettable. It is nice to look at, has a good soundtrack and has some nice values about family and friendships(values I personally regard highly). The film is directed efficiently, and the cast is likable. Jim Carrey is not quite as good as he once was but he still gives a likable and fun performance bringing a good touch of his manic persona. Carla Gugino is lovely too, and it was a pleasure to see Angela Lansbury again. But it is the penguins that steal the show, they are absolutely adorable and if there are any cute, charming and funny parts, the penguins are a big part of why. The story is simple and has some charm, if rather predictable and contrived. The script is sometimes funny, but some of it is weak, likewise with the gags but some in this case are a little too drawn out for my tastes. Pace is mostly lively, however I think the final third feels a little rushed. Overall, a cute movie but rather forgettable. 6/10 Bethany Cox

Birds from the deep freeze

Jim Carrey is part of the title character in Mr. Popper's Penguins. The other part of the title are six not so adorable penguins, a last present from his father before he passed away. We see in a brief prologue with his character as a chjild, that young Tom Popper Jr. was a lonely kid who communicated with dad back in the 70s via a ham radio set. The senior Popper was always promising to come home but never quite makes it.

The grownup Popper that Carrey portrays is an absentee father to his two kids who is obsessed with the almighty dollar and is deal maker in the tradition of Gordon Gekko. His assignment is to acquire Tavern On The Green from owner Angela Lansbury for his real estate mogul firm. She's a formidable adversary and it won't be easy.

Then the penguins arrive at his penthouse and as the saying goes, the little birds kind of grow on you. And his kids especially his young son now think their dad is one cool dude. Of course he has to keep the apartment suitably cold for the penguins. And it's not like throwing down kitty litter to deal with some of their hygienic issues.

Even estranged wife Carla Gugino slowly reawakens to an interest in Carrey. But he's got to deal with the zoo officials as well who want the birds.

Why with Carrey's wealth and credit he didn't get a place in the country and build a proper compound for the penguins is something I'm still trying to figure. But he comes through in style.

Best scene in the film is the penguins following Carrey to an affair Lansbury is throwing at the Guggenheim museum. They crash the society party and really upend things.

Mr. Popper's Penguins is a delightful comedy with Carrey at top form with both his fellow humans and those scene stealing penguins.

bland kids movie

Mr. Popper (Jim Carrey) grew up with an absentee explorer father and becomes a cold hearted property buyer. He is divorced with two kids. One day, his long gone father sends him a penguin. He calls to return the penguin but communication problem causes 5 more penguins to be sent.

It's a likable kids movie. There's nothing mean spirited here. On the other hand, there's nothing edgy or original. It's rather bland. Jim Carrey tones down this character which he has played many times before. He limits his over reaching gyrations but still has the physical pratfalls. In fact, everything seems toned down and a bit of a bore. The penguins are a marvel of CGI but they lack individualism and personality. Their artificialness is never far from the mind.
