Mr. Popper’s Penguins is a great winter movie to watch with the entire family. It features Jim Carrey as Mr. Popper, the main character. He and his wife divorce after having two kids, Janie and Billy. He becomes a real estate entrepreneur and lives in a large apartment in New York City.

One day, he receives a box that he thinks had a stuffed penguin in it. Only moments later does he realize it is in fact alive. Then, the next day he receives another box with five more. Because his kids are coming over for the weekend because it is Billy’s birthday, he wants to get rid of the penguins before they see them. The kids come before he can send them away and the person that was going to take them away shows up while the kids are there. Mr. Popper told the man that he could not take the penguins, which was a good thing because the guy was actually going to trap the penguins and they probably would have ended up dying.

Mr. Popper became obsessed with the penguins and actually turned his apartment into a place specifically for the penguins to live in. He filled the apartment with snow and ice to meet the penguins needs. Also, he decides to name them Captain, Bitey, Lovey, Loudy, Stinky, and Nimrod.

This movie is personally one of my favorites and is still funny every time I watch it. It came out in 2011, so I have probably watched it more times than I can count. If you are looking for an entertaining movie during the winter months, I highly recommend watching Mr. Popper’s Penguins.
