Mr. Popper’s Penguins DVD Review & #Giveaway + Penguin Ice Cube Tray

     When I first saw the previews of Mr. Popper's Penguins when it was in the theater I really wanted to see it.  We don't get to the movies much so I likely I'd have to wait until it comes out on DVD.  Well, guess what!?!  Its out on DVD!!  And I got a chance to watch this movie, share with you, and give a copy to one of you!

     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 socialite, 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 Antarctic 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. 

     Like I said I was excited to get the movie and watch it.  I watched it myself because I could not wait and the boys were napping.  I am excited to watch it again with John and Jayden because I think they both will enjoy it too.  Jim Carey is funny as usual, but not that stupid funny he can be sometimes.   The penguins are so cute and this movie makes me want to go out and get a pet penguin.  I love that in the story Mr. Popper is a dad and he will do anything for his children to want to be with him, even fill his New York apartment with snow and live with penguins. 

      Mr. Popper's Penguins will be released December 6.  You can pre-order it now on DVD or BluRay from Amazon

Win it:  One (1) winner will receive a DVD copy of Mr. Popper's Penguins as well as this really cute penguin ice cube tray. 
  Enter in the Rafflecopter form below!  This giveaway will be open until 12/07 at 12:01AM (EST).
