2011 Holiday Gift Guide: Mr. Poppers Penguins Review and Giveaway! - CLOSED!

Coming to Blu-ray and DVD on December 6th, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment brings us Mr. Popper's Penguins! We received a copy of this movie to review and the whole family enjoyed it! I for one think penguins are adorable, so this was a great movie for me to watch! I am also a big fan of Jim Carrey. In this movie Mr. Popper inherits 6 penguins and it's fun to watch his world be turned upside down by these mischevious creatures! This would make a wonderful holiday gift for just about anyone on your list! This is a wonderful family friendly film!

Summary:

Just in time for the holidays, enjoy Jim Carrey (A Christmas Carol) in MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS, on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download on December 6th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  The whole family will be full of laughs watching Mr. Popper, a driven businessman who is clueless when it comes to the important things in life until he inherits six, “adorable” and mischievous penguins. 

As Mr. Popper quickly gets acquainted with – and increasingly attached to – his winged roommates, his  life quickly unravels: the deal he’s long been working on with a formidable socialiate, Mrs. Van Gundy, played by the acclaimed Angela Lansbury (
Murder She Wrote, Beauty and the Beast),  is derailed and Popper almost lands in jail.  While Popper’s penguins turn his swank New York apartment into a snowy winter wonderland - they teach him valuable lessons about family- human and otherwise!

MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS is based on a novel, originally published in 1938, written by the husband and wife team of Richard and Florence Atwater.  Awarded the Newbery Medal in 1939,
Mr. Popper’s Penguins became a classic through generations, and is a staple on elementary school shelves to this day.  The Blu-ray and DVD bonus feature “The Legacy of Mr. Popper’s Penguins” highlights literary experts and family of Richard and Florence  Atwater telling the fascinating story behind the story..

From the director of
Freaky Friday and Mean Girls, and the producer of Gulliver’s Travels and the Garfield franchise, MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS will be available on December 6, 2011 on Blu-ray, DVD, digital download and a limited edition MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS gift pack that includes the DVD and TY Beanie Plush Penguin – perfect gift for the holiday!  The Blu-ray and DVD also feature a never-before-seen animated short, “Nimrod & Stinky’s Antartic Adventure,” in which Zookeeper Nat Jones flies to the antarctic determined to get Popper's Penguins back.  The penguins, led by Nimrod and Stinky, outsmart him once again.

BUY IT:

You can pre-order Mr. Popper's Penguins on Amazon for $16.99!


Thanks to Twentieth Century Fox, one lucky Adventures of a Thrifty Mommy reader will win a DVD copy of Mr. Popper's Penguins and the adorable ice cube tray pictured above!  Click "Read More" and follow the Rafflecopter directions to enter.
