Today, we are reviewing the newest Jim Carrey film to hit theatres, Mr. Popper's Penguins.
The family comedy film, which stars Jim Carrey, Carla Gugino, Madeline Carroll, Maxwell Perry Cotton, and Ophelia Lovibond follows the story of Tom Popper, a divorced realtor who's dead father sends six penguins to his New York apartment. Tom plans to send the penguins to the zoo, but when his children fall in love with him, and him, his kids, and his ex-wife begin reconnecting because of the penguins, he decides to turn his apartment into a home for the penguins.
With a charming plot and some good performances, the film is good for all audiences - but that doesn't hide the fact that the film is thoroughly predictable, but, it's a family comedy movie - and that's exactly what they gave us: family comedy, but not much else.
Overall rating: 6.8/10
