The teaser trailer for Mr. Popper’s Penguins has the following things: Jim Carrey showing his age, Jim Carrey teaching penguins how to hip hop dance to “Ice Ice Baby,” Junior Soprano saying, “Your house is full of penguins!” and almost nothing else.
I am not familiar with the source material, the 1938 children’s book Mr. Popper’s Penguins, but if it happens to be one sheet of paper that says simply, “Mr. Popper lives in a house with penguins for some reason,” then this movie appears 100% faithful to the source material.
Uhhhh…he seems to live in a nice house?
He’s in a tuxedo. That’s a pleasant little play on penguin imagery….
That’s seriously all that can be said about this trailer.
