Tom Popper (Jim Carrey) grew up having very little interaction with his father, who was off exploring the world. When he grows up, he spends most of time on his work and ignores his children. One day his father sends him an unusual gift: a penguin. Popper can't help but wonder why his father would send him a penguin. He tries to get rid of it, but accidentally orders five more. When his children and ex-wife show up to celebrate his son's birthday, the kids are taken with the penguins. And Popper finally gets to connect with his kids while his work suffers.

[to Nat, hitting him with the leash
Why are you hitting yourself, huh? Why are you hitting yourself? That's not attractive for a zoo official.
After the end of the credits, you hear one of the penguins hoot three times (but not loud enough to be "Loudy"!) See more
