Jim Carrey? Good idea, bad idea? I'm not a fan of his (I know, I know, and I'm NOT crazy... well, I might be... but that's not the point!) I LOVED this book! Seeing the trailer today I am going to have to find a copy and read it again But Jim Carrey?


Jim Carrey as Mr. Popper?
Good idea
Bad idea
No idea - didn't read it
Who cares? I didn't like the book and won't watch it (if you pick this tell me... we need to chat HAHA )

I'm torn on it-he can be really...we'll go with creepy, but he is very versatile and I think he could be alright. I will go see it any way because I loved the book and plan on just going with an open mind!

Ashley,
I'm with you about Jim Carrey. Do not like him. He's so slapstick. He reminds me of Jerry Lewis. Not funny.

I don't know what Mr. Poppers Penguins is, so I have no opinion on that. But, I wouldn't vote for Jim Carey in anything.

Although, I admit, he was a good one to play Count Olaf in A Series of Unfortunate Events.

I love Jim Carrey...you are all crazy.

I haven't read this book, but the previews look hilarious, at least the kids thought so!

My kids (8 and 10) really want to see this movie. I haven't read the book. I think he'll be fantastic.

I Jim Carrey.

I saw him once on an episode of Inside the Actor's Studio and he was BRILLIANT. (While I'm not a fan of others' misfortune, I am glad he split with Jenny McCarthy. She makes my brain hurt.)

I loved Mr. Popper's Penguins, but I have a hard time picturing Jim Carrey as Mr. Popper. But, he might do a great job!

Linda, I think he is creepy lol! I think it is because of the Mask. That movie still freaks me out!

He just doesn't seem like the right fit for Mr. Popper. Honestly, I'm not sure who I would pick instead, I just hope he doesn't ruin it!

For anyone that wants to here is the link to the trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBVTtaJbMUI and to the book http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Popper's_Penguins

Johnny Depp is awesome at playing characters.
