This is such a cute movie! Kevin James is such a good actor. Most of his movies been in are freaking hilarious! Somehow everytime they put animals in it, it makes things that much funnier. How this whole movie was so enjoyable because the animals were trying to help Kevin James’ character “Griffith” try and win back this snobby girl who he loved very much but when he proposed to her five years earlier she declined because he was a Zookeeper. I pretty much hated her guts!
Having Kevin is one thing to be happy about, but having Rosario Dawson, Donnie Wahlberg, Maya Rudoph, and Cher in this movie really made it awesome! I thought Donnie Wahlberg was going to voice one of the animals, but no, he plays a jerk zookeeper instead. Maya Rudoph plays the Giraffe. I knew I recongized that voice from somewhere another voice I knew was the female lion. Cher is the female lion. I literally went back and forth to who that voice was. For some reason I kept imagining Happy Potter, but I was definitely wrong.
This movie is definitely a family movie. Seeing Griffith and the Gorilla, Bernie singing to Flo Rida’s “Low” was just the best thing ever. So funny! Having the Monkey say “throw poop at her!” When Griffth asked the animals for help through the phone. The poor crow got a bad rap. All he wanted was be a Zoo animal. I felt bad for him. Kids would definitely love this movie. I’m a kid at heart and I enjoyed this movie.
