Movie Review: We Bought a Zoo

This movie came out in 2011 starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson.  Brian and I had wanted to see this movie for a while, and we finally got a chance to.  So here is the run down!

Summary: After the death of his wife, Benjamin and his two kids need a fresh start.  Benjamin goes house hunting and ends up finding the perfect house.  Well almost perfect...there is a zoo on the property that you have to buy if you want the house.  So, Benjamin jumps in head first.  The zoo needs a lot of help, so they spend a lot of time and money trying to fix it up and their lives.  Will they make it?  You should watch the movie to find out.

What I Loved?

  • It is a really really sweet story!! And I love how it is based on a true story!
  • They picked a great actor for the son....he really could be Matt Damon a lot younger
  • The daughter is ADORABLE! They wrote her really well and she delivered the lines perfectly.
What I Hated?
  • Had a lot of characters that they only partially would have been nice if they had done more with all of them
  • Not much is a pretty good movie!!!
So bottom line...Great movie! Totally find it and buy it!
