Mr. Popper (played by Jim Carrey) is a fast talking salesman who receives a gift from his late father that changes his life in ways he never could have imagined.

As the title suggests, Popper receives six large penguins.  These aren't just ordinary penguins. They bond with one person and do not let go.  They also have an incredible tracking ability (but that's another story.)

Soon Popper's winged roommates turn his and his family's life upside down. Anyone that has a child or is connected to their inner child should see "Mr Popper's Penguins."

Before the film opened, Carrey talked about working with penguins. He told Starpulse: "I think that's why we love penguins, because they don't belong just anywhere. They're wobbly and vulnerable. They're not really fish and they're not really birds."

The film is based on a 1939 children's book.
