Beloved zookeeper Griffin Keyes (Kevin James) decides to quit his job to dive into the dating pool, and finds that his animal friends have been harboring an incredible secret in this comedy from director Frank Coraci (The Wedding Singer, Click). Griffin is a single guy who loves his job at the Franklin Park Zoo. He has a special bond with the animals, yet he can't help but feel lonely each night when he returns to an empty house. Eventually deciding that a more prestigious job may be the key to finding a new girlfriend, Griffin prepares to turn in his walking papers and reinvent himself. But when word gets out to the animals that Griffin will soon be leaving, they realize the only way to keep him around is to reveal they have the gift of the gab. Perhaps with a little dating advice from his friends in the animal kingdom, this lonely zookeeper will manage to meet the girl of his dreams without losing the job he loves. Rosario Dawson co-stars in a comedy featuring the voices of Sylvester Stallone, Adam Sandler, Cher, and Nick Nolte.~Jason Buchanan
This is one of my favorite movies with Kevin James. It's pure silliness. It's a fun movie with a great cast. I highly recommend this movie for anyone who enjoys movies that are not sad or based on any true stories etc.. I love that this is a funny version of Dr. Dolittle. I mean this movie has Cher and Stallone, enough said!! I know that it might have gotten not the best reviews but I feel for this kind of movie you just need to go into it knowing that your going to have a fun time.
Kevin James has his turn at another romantic comedy. What's great for the family is the movie is more focused on the zoo animals & the comedy than on the romance. Nice casting with Donnie Wahlberg & Rosario Dawson.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Good Family Movie
Excellent movie for any family with children. Watching this kept reminding me of the laughs I had watching Dr Doolittle as well. Definitely a movie worth the price that was paid for a great night of family entertainment.
