How the mighty have fallen. This looks god-awful.
The mighty? Perhaps you forgot where Carey got his Movie Lead start… Ace Ventura Pet Detective!
Looks funnier than Zookeeper, but that is a pretty low bar.
I meant in terms of box office draw. But your point is well taken.
I like the way there’s a dolly move in the security camera footage. I can tell the director really prepared well… and cares.
If the trailer usually has the best stuff to grab the audience attention…this trailer has failed miserably.
I’m sure every bitter poster will hate on this creatively (seems like they recycled the Liar Liar set-up even), but unfortunately, you’re not the target audience. Kids love penguins, and Jim Carrey still has enough street cred left for their parents to go too. should do very well.
As I parent, I disagree.
I like penguins.
excellent point about the security camera dolly move! But you have to admire Jim Carrey for putting and effort in this, and it looks like he’s pulling it off
I cannot believe that Oren Aviv and Tony Sella thought this was a good trailer. The story is a mess, there no jokes – just a few prat falls, and there are no quintessential Jim Carrey moments to remind parents why they might actually enjoy taking their kids to see this. And yes, of course the penguins will get family audiences interested, but come on, this looks the marketing guys didn’t even try. For two of the top guys in theatrical marketing, I’m really baffled by this terrible trailer.
Please try investing more than two dollars into your trailers. It kinda helps the movie sell better.
Person With Two Eyes Who Just Saw Your Trailer
Trailer is fine and actually good in parts but why does he have to keep the penguins? This trailer is still a little confusing.
I really want to dislike this movie based solely on the concept but something tells me this might actually be a good family-film.
What a bunch of cynics. The trailer probably just told the whole plot but it still looks like fun. Cute!! (& who doesn’t like penguins?)
can we all agree that this picture kind of looks like he just had sex with a bunch of penguins?
I hate to say this but I actually like this cheap trash and I know better but still I like it, lol.
What does it look like? Jim is kicking his own ass!
@No one of Consequence….”Actually, he got his start on Duck Soup on NBC and the Living Color on FOX…..
The kids will love this, who cares what most of us think.
Looks perfect for summer family fun. Thought the trailer was funny.
Wow, talk about cynicism. You folks are a bunch of negative old humbugs.
And it’s the same on practically every other trailer story. Do any of you commenters actually work in film or has this site become just another place for the angry, bitter trolls that frequent the geek sites like ainitcoolnews?
This movie may not look groundbreaking but the trailer was cute and made me chuckle. It’s reminscent of classic Carrey (Jim balancing antics with mushy heart a la “Liar, Liar” and “Bruce Almighty”). I’ll be surprised if this doesn’t do well.
As for you people spouting humbug at every forthcoming movie, thank god you’re not the target audience or all we’d be getting would be angry, self-absorbed movies about conspiracies and how America has gone to the dogs. Here’s a wake-up call for all of you, we’re in a time now where two thirds of revenue comes from overseas.
