The life of a businessman begins to change after he inherits six penguins, and as he transforms his apartment into a winter wonderland, his professional side starts to unravel.
What attracted Jim Carrey to this role more than anything else was the chance to dance with penguins like his hero Dick Van Dyke did in Mary Poppins (1964).
You are falling asleep.
Amanda: No I'm not.
Mr. Popper: Hmm, that must be me.
Amanda: You really should go to bed.
Mr. Popper: Uh-uh, I'm not leaving him, he's a Popper.
When Janie and Billy enter Mr. Popper's "snowy" home, Janie has the keys in her right and her left hand is in her coat's pocket. A few seconds later, she throws a snowball to her dad. But, in those seconds, she didn't bowed to take some snow for snowball.
No penguins were harmed in the making of this film. Jim Carrey, on the other hand, was bitten mercilessly. But he had it coming.
