Jim Car­rey once had his pick of com­edy flicks to star in and the hottest birds to star op­po­site him but now he’s stuck in this type of ob­vi­ous fam­i­lyfriendly fare where the com­edy’s dull and the birds are CGI flight­less ones. The bland story about a busi­ness­man try­ing to re­con­nect with his fam­ily through some pet pen­guins is pretty bland too, though it is all about en­ter­tain­ing the kids and there’s enough broad humour and cutesy go­ings- on to do that.

Ex­tras: ★ Just an an­i­mated short based on some of the film’s pen­guin and hu­man char­ac­ters.
