Film: Mr Popper's Penguins (2011)
Sidekick to: Jim Carrey
Jim Carrey has had his fair share of glamorous co-stars but some of his best films see the funnyman take centre stage opposite animal sidekicks. Just look at the evidence: the dog in The Mask, the Noah's Ark of crazy critters in Ace Ventura and now a gaggle of penguins in his latest release.
There's nothing cuter/funnier/more likely to make an estranged father see the error of his ways than an animal like say a penguin. But he's not the only actor to have enjoyed the company of an animal sidekick. So as Mr Popper's Penguins waddles it's way onto our screens join us as we look over the rest of the best animal sidekicks in movie history.
