We Bought a Zoo

“We Bought a Zoo” (based on the book of the same name by Benjamin Mee) is the charming true story of a father (Benjamin Mee played with care by Matt Damon), in a struggle to keep his family together, buys a run-down house with a built-in “bonding project”…a zoo on the property.

Maggie Elizabeth Jones who plays Mee’s 7-year-old daughter Rosie is a natural in front of the camera.
Director Cameron Crowe gives us a film that is just a little too sweet, and it begs the question: How much did the screenwriters enhance the real story?

The relationship of Benjamin’s 14-year-old son with a zoo employee doesn’t work…or even make sense.

Rated PG
2 hr. 4 min.
