We Bought A Zoo DVD Review

My family enjoys spending time with each other around the TV.  So I'm always looking for a good family flick that's appropriate for all ages.  I recently received the new DVD, We Bought A Zoo" to review.

About the movie:

"WE BOUGHT A ZOO is “a sweet-natured tale…that you’ll want to see with your kids” (Liz Braun, Jam! Movies).
Benjamin Mee (Damon) is a Los Angeles newspaper columnist and adventure writer who, as a single father, faces the challenges of raising his two young children. Hoping that a fresh start and a new life will restore their family spirit, Mee quits his job and buys an old rural house outside the city with a unique bonus feature: a zoo named the Rosemoor Animal Park, where dozens of animals reside under the care of head zookeeper Kelly Foster (Johansson) and her dedicated team. With no experience, limited time and a shoestring budget, Mee sets out with the support of his family and the local community to reopen the zoo. Now, Benjamin is no longer reporting an adventure story; he’s living it in his own backyard".

My thoughts:

When I saw the commercials for this movie when it was out in theaters, I have to say I didn't grab me.  But, I am so glad I gave this movie a chance.  This is such a heartwarming film! It will bring tears to your eyes. 

It shows the true story of how this family went through the devastation of losing their mother and the struggles of trying to hold the family together.  It's a great reminder to cherish our loved ones and make the most of whatever situation your in.  I would definitely recommend this movie and if you are a softy, make sure to have  box of tissue handy!

Disclosure: I received this DVD in exchange for my review.  I was not compensated and opinions are all mine.
