Funny movie

The movie was funny.

Mr. Popper's Penguins Rocks

Nate (age 6) says, "Mr. Popper's Penguins" ROCKS! Mr. Popper looks different in the book than in the movie. It was fun to read the book and compare it to the movie. I think the story was good. It ends the same as the movie. In the book though they put the penguins in a show. That was sooooo funny! I think you should read the book, you will like it too!


I have high expectation for this movie. This movie sounds really funny.
