    A feel good movie that is hard to dislike even though there are some rough edges here and there.

    When I saw some pictures about this movie and that it was put away in the familial movie section, I wasn't sure about renting it. On the other hand, I was interested in seeing Matt Damon playing this kind of role, which is considerably different from the others he's used to play. Finally, it turned out that I just enjoyed seeing this movie, and mostly when I realized that it didn't contain a classic and basic story as I expected. In fact, I was surprised to see how dramatic some scenes were. The acting was also surprisingly excellent, from all the characters. Predictable maybe, but the end was exactly the one we were hoping for. One last point that I would like to bring up; this is not a typical movie made for children, even if it seems to be so. The context, conversations and languages are not appropriates for children. I think that it is an adult movie mistaking and passing off for a children movie due to the familial environment where the story takes place in (the zoo) In brief, it was a quite surprising movie starring Matt Damon where he proves us that he can also play in a dramatic comedy film.

    Another touching family movie. This one really brings a smile to your face as well, but it has enough humour in it that is actually funny and not too cheesy. The acting is really good for almost all characters, and the story is very inspiring. I love the 'twenty seconds of courage' idea! This movie does have some swearing, and a lot of adults talking about money, so I'll put that as my only warning if you wish to bring really young children. But overall, worth seeing. Enjoy! :)

    A very touching story. Great for the whole family even though some parts are sad. Great cast, Maggie Elizabeth Jones is sooo adorable and a fabulous actor. I can't believe it's based on a true story.

    A good story. I personally love animals and I think this is a very emotional movie about the animals; especially the tiger.

    8/10

    Just a wonderful movie! So authentic and real feeling... great acting, a real nice mix of characters and emotion and of course, beautiful animals! If you need to sit back and relax, this great feel-good movie is perfect for you and your whole family!

    A very good family movie, with a excellent script and plot. Well rounded characters.

    9/10

    This was not a bad movie - but it wasn't fantastic either. Scarlett Johansson seems to have only about 3 different expressions in this film. Matt Damon is better. Definitely a movie to share with kids.

    We bought a zoo was an amazing movie, whether you 5 or 45 you'll be interested during the entire movie. If you go with children, the movie will keep them interested because of the animals and it has a funny, interesting, sweet and sad storyline that is shown the entire movie.

    9/10

    A real feel good movie - perfect for families - has a nice touch to it - feels like you are in the movie.
