Last weekend for Father’s Day we were given the opportunity to go watch Mr. Popper’s Penguins as part of a shopper insights study by Collective Bias.
We were excited because it was a chance for all of us to go to the movies together. Something we don’t often get to do but find extremely fun. Especially when you get to add a bucket of butter popcorn to the mix. 🙂
If you’re not familiar with the movie here is a brief synopsis:
In this family comedy, Jim Carrey is Mr. Popper, a driven businessman who is clueless when it comes to the important things in life – until he inherits six penguins. Popper’s penguins turn his swank New York apartment into a snowy winter wonderland – and the rest of his life upside-down. Filmed on a refrigerated soundstage with real Gentoo Penguins, “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” is a contemporary adaptation of the classic book.
Part of the requirements for us to go and watch the movie was to purchase our tickets from Fandango.com which is something I’ve never done before. I found the process both easy and sorta fun. (I’m strange, any new experience is fun in its own way.)
If you’ve never used Fandango before I made a video about my experience and you can see just how easy it truly is!
Now, back to the movie. Personally, I loved it! I have been over Jim Carrey for a while now but I gotta tell ya the movie was enjoyable. I think the penguins really stole the show though. It was the way Jim Carrey’s character interacted with the penguins that really made the movie. The transition he goes through while taking care of the penguins directly affects his relationships with his kids and ex-wife. It’s definitely one of those feel good movies of the year. We all left the theater smiling and of course my kids were reliving the exploits of Stinky and Loudy penguin. 🙂
You can see what my kids thought in their quick video review of the movie too!
