‘Cars 2′ Is Number One At The Box Office, But I Had To See ‘Mr. Popper’s Peguins’ Instead [VIDEO]

One of the great things about having a young son, is the ability to see kids movies.  I mean sure I could watch it alone when it comes out on HBO on Demand on Suddenlink in a few months, but I really wanted to see this at Carmike Cinemas in the Lufkin Mall this weekend for opening weekend.   I mean Rolling Stone gave it 3 and a half stars.  That’s high praise for those guys!  It was all set and then my kid pulls an audible.  He would rather see Mr. Poppers Penguins.  I would have rather not.  Yet now I can say I have seen Mr.Poppers Penguins.   Very strange movie.  And somehow Jim Carey worked in a Jimmy Stewart reference.  Does anyone even know who that guy is anymore.   I guess there is always next week.  I will see this movie in 3D at the theater somehow.
