Title:  We bought a zoo [videorecording]

Starring:  Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson, Thomas Haden Church

Collection:  Movies

 

Oscar Winner Matt Damon gives a heartfelt performance in this “delightful surprise” (Lou Lumenick, New York Post) that’s based on a true story. When his teenage son gets into trouble, Benjamin Mee (Damon) gives up a lucrative newspaper job to move his family to the most unlikely of places: a zoo! With help from an eclectic staff, and with many misadventures along the way, Benjamin embarks on a fresh beginning to restore the dilapidated zoo to its former glory, while uniting his family.

Do not get me started on Matt Damon!  In recent years, I have become such a fan of his movies that just learning that he is in a film is enough to encourage me to see it.  Maggie Elizabeth Jones, who plays little Rosie, steals every scene she is in.  We Bought a Zoo is a delight for the entire family.
