  • Very simple story and not the best Jim Carrey-movie, but still funny! We saw Carrey in a few drama’s, but I like him most in comedies. In “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” we can say the casting is perfect. The story is so stupid and unrealistic, what turns out to be a perfect match with Jim Carrey. Maybe the movie is a little bit childish, but there are enough funny moments. Not the best comedy ever, but just nice to watch.
