Mr. Popper's Penguins ~ Review

Mr. Popper's Penguins ~ Available on DVD and BluRay Dec. 6

What’s Black and White and Blu all over?
Debuting on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download December 6!
Summary: Just in time for the holidays, enjoy Jim Carrey (A Christmas Carol) in MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS, on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download on December 6th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  The whole family will be full of laughs watching Mr. Popper, a driven businessman who is clueless when it comes to the important things in life until he inherits six, “adorable” and mischievous penguins.

As Mr. Popper quickly gets acquainted with – and increasingly attached to – his winged roommates, his  life quickly unravels: the deal he’s long been working on with a formidable socialiate, Mrs. Van Gundy, played by the acclaimed Angela Lansbury (Murder She Wrote, Beauty and the Beast),  is derailed and Popper almost lands in jail.  While Popper’s penguins turn his swank New York apartment into a snowy winter wonderland - they teach him valuable lessons about family- human and otherwise!

MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS is based on a novel, originally published in 1938, written by the husband and wife team of Richard and Florence Atwater.  Awarded the Newbery Medal in 1939, Mr. Popper’s Penguinsbecame a classic through generations, and is a staple on elementary school shelves to this day.  The Blu-ray and DVD bonus feature “The Legacy of Mr. Popper’s Penguins” highlights literary experts and family of Richard and Florence  Atwater telling the fascinating story behind the story..

From the director of Freaky Friday and Mean Girls, and the producer of Gulliver’s Travels and the Garfield franchise, MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS will be available on December 6, 2011 on Blu-ray, DVD, digital download and a limited edition MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS gift pack that includes the DVD and TY Beanie Plush Penguin – perfect gift for the holiday!  The Blu-ray and DVD also feature a never-before-seen animated short, “Nimrod & Stinky’s Antartic Adventure,” in which Zookeeper Nat Jones flies to the antarctic determined to get Popper's Penguins back.  The penguins, led by Nimrod and Stinky, outsmart him once again.

Mr. Popper's Penguins is a great story. Mr. Popper is a divorced businessman with 2 children. He receives the penguins as a gift from his late father. As you can guess, his kids are very excited about this. I don't want to give too much away, but during the course of the movie, Mr. Popper grows very fond of the penguins, and grows very close with his children as well. He realizes that he has been missing out on the important things in life.

All in all we really enjoyed this movie. I was a little skeptical when letting my 4 year old watch something with Jim Carrey, just based on the type of movies that he usually stars in, but it was totally kid friendly. This is a great family movie. My daughter really loved it and thought that it was really funny. It had her glued to the television for the entire movie. She now asks to watch it all the time!
