Jim Carrey + CGI penguins + “Ice Ice Baby” = THIS IS YOUR MOVIE.
Awww! The video won’t work for me, but I loved this book as a kid!
Ok, this does not remind me of the book AT ALL.
Was Jim Carrey not in the book?
Barf of the Penguins
The Big, Chilly Apartment
The Big Chilly Willy

Of course they used Ice Ice Baby. I expect they’ll use every single joke they can think of that references ice or cold. Don’t be surprised when one of the penguins is a bounty hunter/party planner.
But, you know, the opposite of that.
“You can’t have a party without ICE”
They should’ve hired the writers who gave Mr. Freeze all of his ice puns.
“Let’s kick some ICE.”
Imagine a standup comic who starts off as a zany, rubber faced wildman. Then imagine he evolves into a serious minded dramatic actor who wins an Academy Award. Then imagines he later devolves into a sad shell of his former self, churning out formulaic comedies and lazy children’s films in a desperate attempt to revive his former glory. Congratulations. You’ve just imagined Robin Williams.
Now imagine the same thing, without the Oscar, and you’ve got Jim Carrey.
Throw some Rob Schneider in there, you’ve got yourself an Adam Sandler.
“Pull yourself together. Your house is full of penguins.”
Mafia euphemisms are getting weirder and weirder.
BEST. MOVIE. EVER.
“Where does he get all those wonderful boyds?”
– this guy :
Hey, you’re inching into the Penguin’s territory. Just be sure not to give him the cold shoulder.
Jim Carrey + Ice Ice Baby in Mr. Popper’s Penguins is almost as bad as if they cast Betty White as Mrs Basil E Frankweiler and had her start rapping about Michelangelo
That’s brilliant! Only, can we replace the little brother with a sentient, talking skateboard?
I know one guy who’s excited about this.
Did anyone see I Love You Philip Morris? I thought he was amazing in it. I guess he’s following the same business model as a lot of the studios do (or used to): One for me (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, one for the masses (Bruce Almighty, THIS MOVIE, etc.).
OH HI THERE, GRAMMAR. NOTHING TO SEE UP THERE… NOTHING AT ALL!
THOSE ARE NOT CGI PENGUINS, THEY ARE REAL PENGUINS THAT YOU WOULD SEE AT THE ZOO
sorry this is a subject very near and dear to my heart and I get upset sometimes
Uhhhh 2005 called. They want their children’s movie genre back.
But seriously… kinda late in the game. even pandas would be out of style by now.
Dear Mr. Carrey,
Thank you for continuing your proud tradition of raping my childhood favourites with your signature brand of “whimsy.” For your next project, I suggest you have your way with “A Cricket in Times Square.” As far as I know, this charming little story has not yet been adapted to a feature-length film, thus providing plenty of opportunity for a shameless hack such as yourself to sodomize it.
I can only budget one “urbanite inherits a half-dozen small something-or-the-others and wackiness ensues, but then life message, awwwww” movie this summer, but I haven’t decided between this or the Smurfs.
