WE HATE IT WHEN HOLLYWOOD BUYS a GREAT CHILDRENS' NOVEL and TRANSLATES IT to the SCREEN AS ABSOLUTE DRIVEL. WHY CAN'T THEY TAKE a LESSON from the ENORMOUS INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS of the HARRY POTTER FILMS (B.O. MoJo LINK) and at LEAST PRETEND to HONOR the BOOKS THAT YOUNG READERS HOLD DEAR??  

PERHAPS DIZZ-KNEE, BACK WHEN OL' WALT HIMSELF WAS STILL ALIVE, COULD'VE MADE an ACCEPTABLE SCREEN VERSION of ONE of OUR FAVORITE NOVELS from OUR OWN CHILDHOOD: MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS. IF THEY'D MADE IT LONG ENOUGH AGO, THEY COULD EVEN HAVE CAST the PERFECT CHARACTER ACTOR as MR. POPPER: PINCH-FACED ROLAND YOUNG

INSTEAD, AS HAPPENED to DR. SEUSS AFTER HIS DEATH, the ESTATE THAT HOLDS the RIGHTS to the MATERIAL SOLD IT to BE MADE INTO a VEHICLE for JIM CARREY, STUFFED to the GILLS with CUTESIE-PIE CRAP THAT WASN'T in the NOVEL, and BEARING ALMOST NO RESEMBLANCE -- BEYOND THERE BEING PENGUINS IN IT -- to the SOURCE MATERIAL. 

WE WERE SURPRISED WHEN CARREY's HIDEOUS MOVIE of THE GRINCH DIDN'T "WIN" EITHER of the RAZZIES® for WHICH IT WAS NOMINATED. WE WERE DISAPPOINTED WHEN CARREY FAILED to GET a WORST ACTOR NOD for HIS INDEFENSIBLE BIG SCREEN RAPING of the FIRST 3 LEMONY SNICKET BOOKS

THIS TIME, WE HOPE HE WON'T ESCAPE UNSCATHED. 

IF YOU'D LIKE to ADD YOUR OWN PILE o' PENGUIN POO onto CARREY's HEAD for MR. POPPER, HERE's the LINK to DO SO...   



CARREY: "If this one tanks, my movie 
career is OVER!!!!"
