Watch Jim Carrey Dance With Penguins in Full Trailer for Mr. Popper's Penguins
Fun fact: Jim Carrey guest starred on The Office last night, and in an episode full of celebrity cameos -- Ricky Gervais, Ray Romano, James Spader and Will Arnett among them -- he stood out with barely two minutes of screentime as "The Finger Lakes Guy." If only Carrey was able to exhibit that much funny in the icy full-length trailer for Mr. Popper's Penguins. Parents, here's hoping you're ready to see a choreographed penguin dance routine set to "Ice, Ice Baby" when you take the kids to see this next month.
Carrey stars as the titular Mr. Popper, a rich businessman who receives a shipment of penguins from his father to disastrous results. (Don't ask.) Of course, the penguins end up bringing Popper closer with his estranged family (Carla Gugino frowns as Carrey's onscreen wife), a development that causes conflict with the persnickety zookeeper (Clark Gregg) who wants the flightless birds all his own.
Mark Waters -- a long way from Mean Girls -- directs Mr. Popper's Penguins, which looks just fine for the kiddies. For the rest of us? Well, at least it's nice to see Uncle Junior working again. Watch the trailer below. Penguins swims into theaters on June 17.
