‘Zookeeper’ (2011) PG Rating
All the animals at the Franklin Park Zoo love their kind-hearted caretaker, Griffin Keyes (Kevin James). But realising that he prefers the company of wild animals to humans, Griffin decides the only way to get the girl of his dreams is to leave the zoo and find a more glamorous job to win her over. The animals, in a panic, decide to break their time-honoured code of silence and reveal their biggest secret: they can talk. To keep Griffin from leaving, they decide to teach him the rules of courtship, in their own unique way! There’s plenty of star power in the film, including the voice talents of Sylvester Stallone as Joe the lion and Cher as his lioness, Adam Sandler as Donald the monkey, and Nick Nolte as Bernie the gorilla. If you’re looking for a moral in the story, then maybe it is to be careful what you wish for: what you think you want might not be anything like what you really need. Hopefully though, you’ll be looking for easy entertainment, in which case this film is a great comedy with plenty of cheap laughs.
