Cameron Crowe, who directed Almost Famous and Jerry Maguire, will probably return to form with this film, which has some serious Oscar buzz behind it.
It also is a true story. It’s about a single dad who believes he and his two children need a fresh start, so he decides to move his family to a zoo. The family then works to return the zoo to its former glory.
I wasn’t expecting much from this movie, but it actually looks like it could be a fun time. There are some cliche moments, like the son and father relationship thing, but for the most part this looks good. I actually want to know how they turn this place into a zoo, and there seems to be some hint of a relationship between Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson, but they don’t seem like they have much chemistry so I can’t tell. Either way, check it out below and watch the HD version at Apple.
