Another movie that I wasn't expecting anything but entertainment. Honestly, I only watched this film for one: Jim Carrey! And two: I had a free pass on PPV and this was the only one I haven't seen. When the movie ended, I weeped in sorrow... I don't see why these movies get approved for release into cinema. The humor was very childish, and basically relied on either toilet humor or dry humor. With that, I mean the humor wasn't a bit funny. The penguins farted in people's faces and Jim Carrey did his regular thing, except this time it was different. That reminds me, the acting wasn't the worst. Jim Carrey played his usual self, but somehow didn't hit the mark for me, but DID do a decent job. The teenage daughter, played by Madeline Carroll (who strangely looks like Liana Liberato) did a pretty good job, but everybody else fell short. I must give the film props for it's wonderful CGI. The penguins looked actually real at times, but instead they took advantage of this and made them do unrealistic things, which were just stupid... I heard people, beforehand, stating the film was heartwarming and cute, but I found none of this. A family breaks into a zoo, steals the animals, and takes them to Antarctica. I found this to be mainly targeted towards little kids, but I must admit I smiled a few times daringly. I don't recommend this film at all, unless you have nothing else to do. I did find entertainment in it, but along the way I was cringing and wincing until the end. Unless you enjoy movies that produce this, I recommend seeing something else. 3/10.
