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 Mee, a widowed father of two young kids who buys a new home that includes a dilapidated animal park.

"7.1.2019 A new year was started with this cliched drama comedy about a man who learns that he is going to be a zookeeper after he bought an old property in a remote location. The film is based on true events but the problem is that it doesn't seem to have real purpose. There's some light humor that might amuse those viewers who are easily amused but that's pretty much it."

"29/7/17 Matt Damon stars as a man who, coping with the death of his wife, moves his family to a rundown zoo and has to deal with the expense, a tough inspector and his own son. Cameron Crowe's gentle drama doesn't change the face of cinema but it does have likeable characters you don't mind spending time with and Damon and Scarlett Johanssen are always agreeable performers."
