REEL DEAL Movies and Television: Mr. Popper's Penguins

Mr Popper's Penguins
Jim Carey is back with his charismatic comedy in the book inspired movie Mr. Popper's Penguins. But the main stars of this flick is not him but the six Gentau Penguins that each has a unique attitude. Based on a children's book but in a different scenario for the film, Mr. Poppers Penguins is worthy to be a great family movie.

Tom Popper (Jim Carrey) is a divorced Realtor and his father traveled around the world since his childhood. He inherited the penguins as his last will. Now Tom learns to deal with the penguins who each have a different personality. Also working his relationship with his kids, his ex-wife and also his clients. With the penguins driving him crazy he then learns a valuable lesson that everyone can also relate.

And also a disclaimer that no penguins were harmed in making this film. And the fact that Jim  Carrey still has that charm to get the audience laughing with just a line or his gestures. Originally the role was offered to Ben Stiller but he dropped out. A good comeback film for Jim Carrey.

Deliberation time kids!
