  • Damon is extraordinary. He's heartfelt performance has a tough core of intelligence and wit. show more

  • The film is sweet. Its observations of life in the aftermath of death ring true, especially for anyone who's traveled the contours of mourning. And although it doesn't rank among Crowe's greatest films, it's a better, tighter, more disarming piece of grief work than his baggy and zigzaggy "Elizabethtown." show more

  • We Bought a Zoo doesn't seem to know what kind of animal it is. Is it a family melodrama, a love story, a wacky comedy, a drama about coping with grief, a feel-good film about following your dreams, or, as ads seem to indicate, a gift-wrapped animal adventure? Not surprisingly, this menagerie of genres doesn't mesh. show more

    I am very upset by the bad language used in this \"family\" movie. I sat down to watch this movie with children ages 5 to 10 and it upset me deeply that you people think it ok to use this language and call it a family movie. Very Disappointed.

    Very heartfelt movie, yet touching. I wouldn\'t recommend this movie to younger children, it tended to bore mine.
