New movie “Mr. Popper’s Penguins,” a new adaptation of the 1938 book for kids by Richard and Florence Atwater is fresh and fun for every age group. Jim Carrey stars in this movie pictureabout Mr. Popper and six adorable penguins which turn his life upside down, teaching him about how important family and other people are. Parents should be rushing their kids down to the local movie theater to see new movie release “Mr. Popper’s Penguins,” especially after recent hits “March of the Penguins” and Oscar winner “Happy Feet.”

After this spring’s kids’ movie, “Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer” bombed at the box office, here comes this new James Carrey movie, a great movie for a guy who could surely use a big hit movie. And movie reviewshave it that this is a great showcase for Carrey’s many comic talents. This role is one that would have been perfect for Eddie Murphy in his Doctor Doolittle days. In this story Carrey’s late father sends a pack of penguins to the Park Avenue apartment of his son. It starts out with one penguin but then five more suddenly appear to live with Carrey, a divorced father with two kids who’s living alone in his fancy apartment and pursuing a career as a real estate developer. He tries to get rid of the birds but pretty soon his nice apartment becomes a winter home for the birds. Then there are more complications when his real estate deal tanks and his kids keep trying to get him back with the Ex, played by Carla Gugino.

While there’s plenty of slapstick in “Mr. Popper’s Penguins,” the penguins seem to become a large and loving family for Carrey. Angela Lansbury has a great few scenes as someone Carrey is trying to charm into buying some real estate. Clark Gregg plays a zoo employee and is good in his role. The penguin’s trainer, Scott Drieschman, is probably the person who deserves the most kudos. He has these birds charming the audience with their adorable antics in every scene.
