Just watched Mr. Poppers Penguins this morning, it was really funny, if you like Jim Carrey comedy, you'll like this movie,.It's not to the extreme of Pet Detective. More of a comedy than a kids movie. I got a chuckle while watching one scene where it was obvious that they subbed ***with butt that someone had spoken, you can tell they changed it a little bit to make it more kid friendly. The Penguins take on the mannerisms or traits closer to humans than wild animals. This of course is to play more into the comedy of the movie, as you see the penguins playing off everything Mr Popper says to them, as if they can understand everything the humans say to the penguins, Which I think they did a good job at, some of the human-penguin back and forth was pretty amusing. Jim Carrey takes on a more mature persona in this movie without losing the great comedic factor he's know for. I think it would have been a little better to see those CGI penguins flying around in 3D though

I am the parent of a 12 and 10 year old and we all loved this movie. Jim Carrey is endearing and very entertaining. The story is totally different than the book, but it was great!!

This is what my nephew has to say after watching the free screening. I agree. Just don't expect oscar caliber performances. But if you want a family friendly film that even the adults will laugh at, this is your film.
