WE BOUGHT A ZOO tells the true story of Benjamin Mee (Damon), a single dad who busy a zoo in an attempt to give his family a fresh slate in life. But, surprisingly enough, taking care of exotic animals turns out to be a bit more than Benjamin thought. While also trying to keep his family together, he goes through misadventures along the way to happiness with his new animals.
It sounds like a corny story, but considering that it’s #1: true and #2: well told (directed by Cameron Crowe), it's 100% heart. Plus, there are animals! Everything with animals is 100%. Sure, the ending (actually the story overall) is predictable, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to watch it anyway. Predictability doesn’t make it any less enjoyable to watch!
