Mr. Popper's Penguins

There are some genuinely cute moments in this very loose adaptation of Richard and Florence Atwater's beloved picture book. Unfortunately, they're mostly bowled over by Jim Carrey's strained slapstick and incessant mugging. Carrey plays the title character, an overworked New York real-estate mogul who inherits a bunch of penguins from a strange relative and keeps them in his apartment--much to the delight of his estranged kids. 94 minutes PG.
