Kindhearted Griffin Keyes (Kevin James) is one of the best-loved caretakers at the Franklin Park Zoo, but since he is more comfortable with the animals than with females of his own species, his love life is lacking.

    A baby giraffe DIED during the making of this film. If all the profits from this death flick don\'t go to animal rescue groups, SHAME on all involved. F these bastards! NOT ONE PENNY for non-human animal exploitation. They are not someTHINGS, they are someBODIES.
