Mr. Popper’s Penguins **1/2

SC118_010 -- Thomas Popper (Jim Carrey) will do anything it takes to keep his six new friends in line.

I watched this movie with my six year old son.  He loved it to pieces.  I was not looking forward to seeing it but found myself laughing more then I expected. 

The plot is basically Jim Carrey finding himself in ridiculous situations involving penguins.  They move in to his house.  He grows to love them.  He begins to transform his apartment in to a snow village for him.  He finds that this brings him closer to his children and his ex wife. 

This is not going to get Jim Carrey any closer to the Oscar nomination that he has wanted for many years now but it certainly doesn’t hurt his career.  It is what it is and you either laughed or you didn’t.
