A Positive Pontification on Mr. Popper's Penguins

Don't worry. I'll spare you a review chock full of 'P' words, though there's quite a few in the film.

For your Independence Day pleasure (oooh, just that one!), enjoy my 100 word review of Jim Carrey's latest, Mr. Popper's Penguins.

When Mr. Popper, an all-work-no-play businessman, receives a pet penguin from his late father, his perfect life falls apart. The penguin floods Popper’s bathroom, leaves him gooey gifts, and costs him a small fortune. Then a miscommunication with the penguin shippers brings five more birds to New York. Long story short, Popper falls for them, reconnects with his family, and learns a valuable lesson about life, love, and…you get the idea.
A cute movie that tended to drag, but worth the money to see the old, Jim Carrey slow-motion gag. Ahhh, I miss Ace Ventura. :)

That's it! Make sure you find some spectacular fireworks to wind down your long holiday weekend. I'll be back on Wednesday with a June wrap-up.

*hesitantly approaches* Mr. Popper's Penguins is one of my all-time favorite books; when I found out they were doing a movie of it, I was afraid they'd totally decimate it. I'm still wary of the movie, but maybe not so much now. LOL.

Thanks for the review!
