WE BOUGHT A ZOO out today on dvd and blu-ray review


A widower (Matt Damon) purchases a zoo in order to bring his family back together in this Twentieth Century Fox adaptation of Benjamin Mee's autobiographical memoir. BASED ON A TRUE STORY!


Now I am a sucker for a feel good movie and We Bought A Zoo is just that.  I cried during the movie but laughed out loud too.  It had a good balance between the sadness and happiness.  My son enjoyed the movie , but my girls drifted through parts but really enjoyed the animals.  Now I will warn you there is language in it (which I wish had been toned down).  Still even with that one complaint the movie has a great message to it. 

The movie left me wanting to load the family up to go see the actual zoo the movie is based on.  Matt Damon did a great job as Benjamin Mee.  Of course to me the star of the movie besides the animal was the little girl played by Maggie Elizabeth Jones .  She was simply adorable!  Of course to me the whole staff did a superb job of acting.

This movie is a great addition to any movie collection and would make a great gift for a loved one.  The movie is being released today .  It is available where dvds are sold and online at Amazon.com for $16.99.
