MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS – Review Comming to DVD on December 6th

Are you looking for a great family movie, that will keep your attention and keep you laughing? Well why not check out Mr. Poppers Penguins!

What’s Black and White and Blu all over?
Debuting on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download December 6!
Summary: Just in time for the holidays, enjoy Jim Carrey (A Christmas Carol) in MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS, on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download on December 6th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  The whole family will be full of laughs watching Mr. Popper, a driven businessman who is clueless when it comes to the important things in life until he inherits six, “adorable” and mischievous 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!

MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS is based on a novel, originally published in 1938, written by the husband and wife team of Richard and Florence Atwater.  Awarded the Newbery Medal in 1939, Mr. Popper’s Penguinsbecame a classic through generations, and is a staple on elementary school shelves to this day.  The Blu-ray and DVD bonus feature “The Legacy of Mr. Popper’s Penguins” highlights literary experts and family of Richard and Florence  Atwater telling the fascinating story behind the story..

From the director of Freaky Friday and Mean Girls, and the producer of Gulliver’s Travels and the Garfield franchise, MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS will be available on December 6, 2011 on Blu-ray, DVD, digital download and a limited edition MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS gift pack that includes the DVD and TY Beanie Plush Penguin – perfect gift for the holiday!  The Blu-ray and DVD also feature a never-before-seen animated short, “Nimrod & Stinky’s Antartic Adventure,” in which Zookeeper Nat Jones flies to the antarctic determined to get Popper's Penguins back.  The penguins, led by Nimrod and Stinky, outsmart him once again.

My Take:

I love Jim Carrey. I have been a fan of his from his "in living color" days. There is just something about him that screams "funny". We watched MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS as a family a little while ago, and it was nice to sit together to watch a family movie.

We popped some pop corn, and I made cookies. And we sat together to watch the film. This move was very cute, my daughter just loved the penguins. I am happy to say my daughter sat and watched the entire film. She has a short attention span (she gets that from her mommy) but she really liked the movie and did not move from her seat.

She even asked to watch it again, and we let her watch it before she went to be. I am sure we will be watching this for years to come.

So I would recommend Mr Poppers Penguins for the family. If you are looking for a DVD to buy for a holiday gift, this is  a great gift idea. For young and old. And whoever is a Jim Carrey fan, like I am :)
