Jim Carrey Stars in Overhaul of Beloved Children's Classic 'Mr. Popper's Penguins'

Director Mark Waters creates delightful retelling of timeless tale

Published by Richard and Florence Atwater in 1938, Mr. Popper's Penguins is a popular children's novel about a house painter who can't afford to see the world anywhere but in his dreams because he has a wife and kids to support. However, his life changes the day a penguin arrives in the mail in response to a letter he writes to an admiral exploring Antarctica. The film version of Mr. Popper's Penguins was directed by Mark Waters, a proven master of kiddie fare between Mean Girls and the remake of Freaky Friday. Starring Jim Carrey in the title role, the picture bears little resemblance to the original timeless, children's classic. But the story is nonetheless just as likely to delight young and old alike.
