Mr. Popper’s Penguins

(PG)  ★★★☆☆

The 1930s children’s book gets a sleek upgrade courtesy of Mean Girls director Mark Waters and star Jim Carrey, who manages to keep his rubbery face muzzled for most of this perfectly pleasant and predictable adaptation. Kids will love repeated scenes involving penguin poop, but parents won’t need a hip flask to get through the proceedings—the mark of a good family film if we ever saw one.
