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.
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.
1.5 out of 5 (C-)
I was originally going to get all dismissive about Mr. Popper's Penguins, but really there’s no need. Yes, it's rubbish. No, I didn't enjoy it. But, the film isn't aimed at me, so I was never really supposed to enjoy it. So, rather than getting all negative about it, I’ll keep things positive by searching for Penguin Biscuit wrapper jokes and presenting my findings.
Who's the penguins favourite aunt?
Why do penguins carry fish in their beaks?
Because they haven't got any pockets.
Why are penguins good race drivers?
Because they're always in pole position.
What do you call a penguin in the desert?
As far as Jim Carrey vehicles go, this one certainly has a lot more penguins than most.
Jim Carrey stopped caring...
Ganz lustiges Familienfilmchen ohne groß was zu reißen. Entspannend kurz und simpel.
Mr. Popper's Penguins' biggest crime is that there is absolutely nothing new about it.
Penguins + Carrey = box office. That’s the simple but undoubtedly correct mathematical equation 20th Century Fox has come up with for this summer’s family-friendly comedy. Largely predictable, this is nevertheless watchable stuff for both children and adults.
Tom Popper is a top realtor (that’s American for property agent, English people), the golden boy of his company and on the verge of making partner. One of the reasons he’s so good is that he’s divorced and as he only sees his children at the weekend, has plenty of time to schmooze his clients. As we see in a neatly told pre-credit sequence, Popper (as he’s known to one and all, even his kids) rarely saw his own father as a…
I was on Agent Coulson's side.
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.
