    Everything about the idea of Mr. Popper's Penguins sounds lovely, and everything about the actual movie is ugly. show more

    My heart was warmed by gratuitous moments when Mr. Carrey clowns for clowning's sake - in the best of them, he makes a slo-mo entrance to a press conference, even though the camera is running at normal speed. show more

    It is a magickal , hillarious and heartfelt movie that I\'ve seen in a long time. It uses Carrey\'s full comedy abitities with tugging at your heart. I will be sure to purchase this favorite and tell others about it. Laughed from begining to end with kleenex to dry my eyes.
