A list of films that incorporate the Wilhelm Scream. I haven't seen all of these so if you can help…
Mr. Popper's Penguins
Jim Carrey stars as Tom Popper, a successful businessman who’s clueless when it comes to the really important things in life...until he inherits six “adorable” penguins, each with its own unique personality. Soon Tom’s rambunctious roommates turn his swank New York apartment into a snowy winter wonderland — and the rest of his world upside-down.
A very, very bland comedy but i did laugh one or two times.
Dear Lord, thank you for the food we are about to eat. Please use your mighty power, to stop the melting of the polar ice caps. Amen.
As much as it seems Jim Carrey is perfectly fit for his B movie comedy roles, I so wish he wasn't. After seeing his performance in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I have never looked at Jim Carrey the same. It’s a disappointment to see his brilliant acting ability go out the window on films like this one. I suppose it’s his decision to go the route he has, but I’m coming to the realization that there will never be another Eternal Sunshine, and for that, my Canadian heart is breaking.
When did I ever disappoint anybody?
The film adaptation of the children's book, Mr. Popper's Penguins by Richard and Florence Atwater, bares very little resemblance to it's source. It's another case of screenwriters taking what they "think" is the concept of a book and inserting it into a formula and attempt to pass it off as family entertainment. Here the only thing that is taken from the book is the name Mr. Popper and the fact that he ends up with some penguins. The character, family dynamic and overall plot is completely different.
Innocuous enough, "Mr. Popper's Penguins" lacks depth or any message that would elevate it to anything above an average family film. It is fun throughout (and some of the dialogue has an alliterative charm that is possibly derived from the children's book on which the film is based), but the film is ultimately inconsequential.
1.5 out of 5 (C-)
Jim Carrey takes an inportant roll in this comedy film,wich i cant say much because i saw it as a kid and didnt really understand the humor while i heard my brother laugh all the film and i didnt understand a bit.
Busrit van kamp in De Panne naar Mortsel deel 2, de boeren staakten dus zagen we nog een kutfilm.

Con Jim carry como papel principal esta pelicula hace reir bastante pero sin el,no se que tipo de basura seria...
La ví cuando era chico así que no capté mucho el humor.
Para fans de Jim Carrey, que no es poco.
Average family film. Watchable because of Jim Carrey.

Quite lovely for a family movie.
It's a sweet but a little bit trite.
Definitely not a comedy though.
This list will be of no real interest to anybody else but it helps me keep an easier track of…
