The feel-good film of 2011.

First off, We Bought A Zoo features Matt Damon as a father in a heartwarming film purely for families, which is something that doesn’t appear very often. Nevertheless, the title We Bought A Zoo already reveals that it is going to be genuinely cute and dazzling to watch, and does already have a target audience. In addition, the film is an American adaptation from a British novel that’s original... read more

Cameron Crowe is good at one thing and that is making the audience that watches his films feel emotion. Vanilla Sky, Elizabethtown, and Jerry Maguire are all perfect examples of this. Fortunately, We Bought A Zoo follows in this line of succession and Cameron Crowe reminds us once more why his films are worth waiting for.

The film is based on a true story as well as a novel writte... read more

Description: We Bought a Zoo is to 2011 what The Blind Side was to 2009: a feel-good-about-being-human film. Writer/director Cameron Crowe (Jerry Maguire and Elizabethtown) makes movies with compassion and empathy for real human beings who take on life challenges that ultimately open their hearts. The always-wonderful Matt Damon plays Benjamin ... (more)

An average movie

“Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since I always had a weak spot for Cameron Crowe’s work and since there was a pretty cool cast, I still wanted to check it out. Well, first of all, I have to admit it, it was definitely a cute concept and the whole thing was definitely cute as well but, I’m afraid that was pretty much everything this movie had to offer. I mean, the it was just terribly predictable : from the very start, you know Matt Damon will buy a zoo, you know it will seem as if they are heading towards disaster but you know also that, at the end, everything will be fine. Since you know already all this, how do you manage to still make an entertaining movie? Well, in my opinion, you should either provide some really intriguing characters and/or have them ” read more

"Quite a sweet film had me smiling throughout, and crying a little bit too. But a great watch if you're looking for something with a happy ending."

" The Ups: It is sweet. Matt Damon is solid in the lead. The Downs: Predictable plot. Annoying obvious ending. "

“We bought a zoo is an impressive story based on true event. It may also be tagged as we bought the dream, it is story of fight of a father to take out his kids out of the shock of the death of their mother. In order to escape from the memories of his dead wife he took his father to a new home, that is infact a zoo that needs to be revived to become a public zoo again. A good movie to watch.” read more
