Product Description

Product Description

Oscar® Winner Matt Damon gives a heartfelt performance in this "delightful surprise" (Lou Lumenick, New York Post) that's based on a true story. When his teenage son gets into trouble, Benjamin Mee (Damon) gives up a lucrative newspaper job to move his family to the most unlikely of places: a zoo! With help from an eclectic staff, and with many misadventures along the way, Benjamin embarks on a fresh beginning to restore the dilapidated zoo to its former glory, while uniting his family. From the director of Jerry Maguire, We Bought a Zoo is a "wonderful, warm and witty" (Bill Bregoli, CBS Radio News) celebration of the human spirit.

Amazon.ca

Though adapted from a memoir by a British journalist, We Bought a Zoo feels entirely like a Cameron Crowe film, with clear parallels to previous crowd-pleasers like Jerry Maguire. Crowe introduces Benjamin Mee (Matt Damon in a role that recalls his Contagion character) six months after the death of his wife. Since everything reminds him of her, the California columnist decides to make a change, starting with a new location. His realtor (Curb Your Enthusiasm's J.B. Smoove), brother (Sideways' Thomas Haden Church), and sullen teenage son (Colin Ford) try to talk him out of it, but Mee falls in love with a country manor that comes with a strange stipulation: the tenant must manage the zoo that accompanies the property. With his daughter's blessing, Mee takes the plunge. Fortunately, he inherits an experienced staff, including MacCready (Angus MacFadyen), Robin (Patrick Fugit), Lily (Elle Fanning), and Kelly (Scarlett Johansson, lovely as ever in her least glamorous role to date). Mee's road to reinvention offers few surprises, but Damon makes him a sympathetic figure who finds the same kind of support system among the park personnel that Fugit's Almost Famous writer found in the rock world, except Mee's relationships have more staying power. If his detractors--a skeptical employee and an unctuous inspector--feel like screenwriter constructs, Zoo represents a return to form for Crowe after a series of missteps, including Elizabethtown. Better yet, the real-life park that Mee acquired continues to lead by example as a humane habitat for endangered species. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

This is a fun movie and I was happy to find the Family Friendly version which cuts out the approx. 20 words that shouldn't have been in there in the first place. If you want to watch this with younger children I recomend that you view it with the Family Friendly version.

It's a pet peeve of mine that Hollywood makes (what they call) a Family (G-rated) movie and still allow coarse language in it. When you do that, it's no longer a Family movie.

In general it was a great movie to watch and it had some great humor in it as it did with the suspenceful parts. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and recommend it to families with teenagers and younger children as well. I advise the parents of younger children to use the Family Friendly version, but that's up to them.

This is a great movie for kids and adults both. There is humour, suspence, lessons to be learned, and a happy ending. To top it all off, it is a true story. I am glad I own it so I can watch it over and over.

Very nice movie about a family who for some reason end up buying a Zoo, as a way to get a new home for themselves. Though not what they were looking for, it was the only home they could afford. The drawback, they had to gradually learn the work of caring for the wild animals, with the assistance of the staff they effectively inherit. Haven't watched much of this DVD yet ... I saw it on TV a few years ago, then gradually accepted and liked it for its humanity.

If you have kids, you have to get this movie. Really. It's so sweet, I got a lot of cavities. It never goes all Walt Disney on you though, it's just a wholesome, adorable movie, a real breath of fresh air in a world of darkness and violence.

This is a great movie for all ages. It inspires and entertains viewers in every way. My only problem is that I believe my DVD was flawed so I had to keep pausing and forwarding in order for the movie to play. Otherwise, we enjoyed it!

This is a very nice and touching movie. It seemed as though unreal, but it was real. It was very enjoyable with no violence. The part of the inspector was a bit out of place as if coming from another movie.
