Mr.Popper’s Penguins
    2011-06-22  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    金凯瑞新片《波普先生的企鹅》

    The film is directed by Mark Waters, director for “Mean Girls*” and “Freaky Friday*.”

    The six penguins in this lovely family comedy* steal the movie although the film’s star, Jim Carrey, does manage to hold his own.

    Growing up in Brooklyn, New York, young Tommy Popper looks forward to the moments when, on his tiptoes* to reach a ham radio* in his bedroom, he can talk to his world-traveling father. Years later, Tommy is now Mr. Popper (Jim Carrey), a highly successful real-estate* developer in Manhattan.

    Divorced from Amanda (Carla Gugino), with two children he sees every other weekend, Mr. Popper lives the life of luxury* in his Park Avenue* apartment and is well on his way to becoming partner* at his company. That is, until the morning a final gift from Popper’s late father, a souvenir* from Antarctica, arrives in a crate* at Popper’s front door.

    Inside the wooden box, among ice packs, is a two-foot-tall penguin with bright orange feet. Not a toy penguin as Popper at first thinks, but a real, live penguin, who runs across Popper’s floor and gives loud honks*.

    Eager to be rid of this wild creature, Popper calls every city and state agency*, but no one is willing to take a pet penguin. His call to Antarctica to try to ship the bird back results in the arrival of another five penguins at Popper’s door.

    As he gets familiar with the birds and has more feelings for his winged roommates, Popper’s life quickly falls apart. His New York apartment is turned into a winter wonderland, the deal he’s long been working on is in trouble, and he almost lands in jail*. But Popper comes to understand the importance of family.

    The weakness throughout is a story where subplots never really add up to much. These include the greedy apartment building receptionist* (Desmin Borges), a nosy neighbor (David Krumholtz), a bad zoo keeper (Clark Gregg) and Popper’s assistant Pippi (Ophelia Lovibond), who speaks alliterately* with a fondness for the letter “p.”

    Bottom line: Jim Carrey is fun to watch and no longer needs to push for jokes where none exists. (SD-Agencies)
