Mr. Popper's Penguins

MOVIE SYNOPSIS
Mr. Popper's Penguins


Mr. Popper is a driven businessman who is clueless when it comes to the important things in life. Mr. Popper finally understands what he's been missing, thanks to a new inheritance: six penguins who turn his swanky New York apartment into a snowy winter wonderland and the rest of his life upside-down.
