Jim Carrey stars in Mr. Popper’s Penguins, the family-friendly film as a high-powered businessman whose life is thrown into turmoil with the unexpected arrival of six penguins. His estranged father has just passed away and the penguins are his last little gift to the son he hardly ever spent time with. And in this video interview courtesy of 20th Century Fox, Carrey talks about his character, the appeal of the story, working with penguins, and conditions on the set.
The Plot: 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.
