Movie Review- Mr Popper's Penguins

One of the summer best family movies starring Jim Carrey. Our family of four went to see this movie last night at our local drive in. I truly enjoyed it. I am always scared when going to the movies when taking the kids. The movie industry doesn't seem to care what they expose our kids to. I was very happy with this movie as far as the content being child friendly.

Movie Synopsis
Adventure-loving house painter Mr. Popper (Jim Carrey) contends with the problem of having too many penguins in director Mark S. Waters' adaptation of author Richard Atwater's beloved children's book. Shortly after penning a letter to a team of Arctic explorers, Mr. Popper is surprised to receive a penguin in the mail. Later, after making his mischievous new pal a cozy new home in the freezer, the hapless Mr. Popper comes into possession of a playful female penguin as well. Before long Mr. Popper finds himself surrounded by a growing family of the flightless birds, and begins training them to perform in a traveling show dubbed Popper's Performing Penguins. With each new town the show travels to, pandemonium is quick to follow. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

If you get a chance to go out and see this movie I think you will be happily surprised and your kids will love the cute penguins.

For all you homeschool readers, there is a book called Mr Popper's Penguins and a free study unit.
