DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a family comedy based loosely on the children's book of the same name. Adult fans of Jim Carrey's wilder, edgier comedy will be disappointed by what is essentially an animal film for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average 'Mr. Popper's Penguins' is a stupefying dumb family movie proving that penguins have limited charisma as pets.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average The whole movie could be summed up similarly. Mr. Popper's Penguins is predictable, but well-intentioned fun.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Average All others, especially those who enjoyed the penguin-themed 'Surf's Up,' 'Happy Feet' or even 'March of the Penguins,' should get a kick out of "Popper,” if not for the goofball birds themselves, then for their even more endearing human counterpart.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 48 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:All the kids loved it with most giving it the highest review possible.
TEENS:Five of the six loved it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:None
ADULTS:The male reviews are decent but certainly not great. Only a few rated it real high and many rated it just average or above average. The female reviews are somewhat better. More of them loved it and less rated it mediocre. This doesn't appear to be a new Jim Carrey hit.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Growing up in Brooklyn, New York, young Tommy Popper looks forward to the moments when, on his tiptoes to reach a ham radio in his bedroom, he can talk to his world-traveling father. Years later, Tommy is now Mr. Popper (Jim Carrey), a highly successful real estate developer in Manhattan. Amicably divorced from Amanda (Carla Gugino), with two children (Madeline Carroll and Maxwell Perry Cotton) he sees on alternate weekends, Mr. Popper lives the life of luxury in his ultra-modern Park Avenue apartment and is well on his way to becoming partner at his prestigious firm. That is, until the morning a final gift from Popper's late father, a souvenir from Antarctica, arrives in a crate at Popper's front door.

Inside the wooden box, nestled amongst ice packs, is a two-foot tall penguin with bright orange feet. Not a toy penguin, or a stuffed bird from the taxidermist, as Popper at first assumes, but a real, live penguin, who scampers across Popper's floor and emits loud honks. Eager to be rid of this wild creature, Popper contacts every city and state agency imaginable, but no one is willing to take a pet penguin. His call to Antarctica to try to ship the bird back instead results in the arrival of another five penguins at Popper's door.

As he gets acquainted with - and increasingly attached to - his winged roommates, Popper's life quickly unravels: his swanky New York apartment is turned into a snowy winter wonderland, the deal he's long been working on is derailed, and he almost lands in jail. But thanks to his new charges, Popper comes to understand the importance of family - human and otherwise.
