Mr. Popper's Penguins

I had a request to review this a while ago (after I read the book), and it took me a while to get it from the library...and work up the courage to watch it. 

My Thoughts:

-    The only things that are remotely similar to the book is:
      A)  There was a Mr. Popper
      B)  There were Penguins

-    The sailing story at the beginning was WAY WAY WAY cheesy.

-    Jim Carrey is old, and it really shows in this one.

-    Angela Lansbury!!!!  She is still alive!?!?!

-    Terrible James Stewart impersonation

-    That charity/art/old people party thingy took place in a weird building.  It looked like a parking garage.

-    How the heck did the penguins find him in the city?  

-    I did laugh a few times...I admit it.

-    I liked his secretary.  

-    The penguin flying with the kite was terrible!!  TERRIBLE!!

-    The square toilet was cool.

-    The ending was pretty lame.  


  1. So, I take it that you didn't really like it then?

  2. I'm so glad you had the courage to watch what sounds like a horrible movie all on my behalf. I was just curious because I didn't even know there was a book in the first place till you read and reviewed it. You're such a trooper. I guess I won't waste my time with this one.
