MR POPPER’S PENGUINS (G)
Stars: Jim Carrey, Carla Gugino
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.
