ABOUT THE MOVIE
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.
