A great movie at a great price!

The Trailer

The best family movie in years!

When I first saw the trailer I thought, "Here we are, more proof that Hollywood is out of new ideas!". It honestly looked silly and rushed, to me. However, it happened to be on a day when I was working on a book, and I thought, "Why not ?". So, I gave it a chance.

The Storyline



A widower who is left to raise his two children is determined to move on, peruse his dream, and make a life better for his family. In search of a new house, he finds the perfect one in the country that he is ready to purchase. So? you may ask. Well, this is no normal house as there is a zoo on the property! Even though it failed in the past, he is driven to make it work this time with the faithful staff and his family. Why? Because his little daughter Rosie has that same dream...an adventure. With many side stories, and drama along the way, this family and their new friends give it everything they have. This movie is full of lions and tigers and bears...oh my. Plenty of heart warming lessons and humorous events come along with them.

Why I liked it-

Well, I am no fan of Scarlett Johannson's but this one was great! What made it different and so enjoyable was the fact that when a family pulls together, anything can happen. The principles of self determination, hard work, and yes a hint of less government prevail and save the day. This was uplifting, fun and inspiring.

The chemistry of the cast was perfect. Little Rosie was perfect and added so much to the story and the intrigue of the plot. I do not want to spoil this modern day classic, so go get a copy and let me know what you think!
