We Bought A Zoo - DVD and Novel Giveaway


Featuring Family Friendly Audio Track The Whole Family Will Go Wild for this Heartwarming Adventure Starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson On Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download April 3rd.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous, Jerry Maguire) and starring Matt Damon (Contagion, True Grit), Scarlett Johansson (Iron Man 2, Vicky Cristina Barcelona) and Thomas Haden Church (Easy A, Sideways), WE BOUGHT A ZOO is “a sweet-natured tale…that you’ll want to see with your kids” (Liz Braun, Jam! Movies).

Benjamin Mee (Damon) is a Los Angeles newspaper columnist and adventure writer who, as a single father, faces the challenges of raising his two young children. Hoping that a fresh start and a new life will restore their family spirit, Mee quits his job and buys an old rural house outside the city with a unique bonus feature: a zoo named the Rosemoor Animal Park, where dozens of animals reside under the care of head zookeeper Kelly Foster (Johansson) and her dedicated team. With no experience, limited time and a shoestring budget, Mee sets out with the support of his family and the local community to reopen the zoo. Now, Benjamin is no longer reporting an adventure story; he’s living it in his own backyard.

My Review:

Based on a true story and a novel, We Bought A Zoo is a heartwarming family film about a widowed husband who buys a run-down private zoo and spruces it back up with the help of a female zookeeper.  When I first saw the previews for this movie I thought it would be geared more towards kids.  Although its content is mostly acceptable for kids to watch, I wouldn't put it in the kids movie genre.  We Bought A Zoo is more of a romance, with family struggles admist it.  The acting is believable and the animals are ambrosial.  Even though We Bought A Zoo wasn't what I expected it to be,  it was still splendid.

Win It!

One person will win We Bought A Zoo DVD and book.
