Mr. Popper's Penguins DVD

One of my favorite books that I read growing up was Mr. Popper's Penguins. I don't remember all of the details from the book but I remember thinking how cool it would be to have penguins. And it was one of those books that I always wanted to see brought to life.

Luckily, now we can all see this Newberry Medal winning book brought to life in the new movie starring Jim Carrey. Released to DVD on December 6th, this hilarious movie follows Mr. Popper as he learns about life and his family from a handful of adorable penguins.

As Mr. Popper quickly gets acquainted with – and increasingly attached to – his winged roommates, his  life quickly unravels: the deal he’s long been working on with a formidable socialiate, Mrs. Van Gundy, played by the acclaimed Angela Lansbury (Murder She Wrote, Beauty and the Beast),  is derailed and Popper almost lands in jail.  While Popper’s penguins turn his swank New York apartment into a snowy winter wonderland - they teach him valuable lessons about family- human and otherwise!

This movie was a cute one and kept me smiling through the entire thing. I would recommend it to anyone with kids or has read the book and wants to see the fun story brought to life.
