While walking around midtown on the East Side on my lunch break today, I encountered snow. I knew it had to have been placed there for some movie or TV production. It turns out, Twentieth Century Fox was filming Mr. Popper's Penguins, starring Jim Carrey.
My friend and co-worker Joyce asked, Is Jim Carrey going to ruin every children's book I loved? Yes, he is, Joyce. Yes, he is.
I don't think I ever read Mr. Popper's Penguins, so I've got no sentimental attachment to that story, but if Jim Carrey ever gets himself attached to a production of this book, he's going to have to answer to me.
