Gist: Acclaimed filmmaker Cameron Crowe directs Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson and Thomas Haden Church in We Bought A Zoo, a highly entertaining, heartwarming adventure and family event, inspired by the amazing true story about a single dad (Damon) who dreams up the coolest, most unusual gift a parent could ever give his family: a zoo. The family travels from the city to their new home in the wilds of upstate New York, where their ramshackle zoo is waiting to be restored to its former glory.

The Positive: Sweet and affectionate, "We Bought a Zoo" is highly recommended for the whole family. Kudos to Matt Damon and his son in the movie, Colin Ford, for tackling their characters with deep empathy.

The Negative: Some cheesy moments here and there and a little predictable to discerning viewers.
