We Bought a Zoo (♦♦♦)

Benjamin Mee (Matt Damon), a widower with two children, is tired of living in the city, going to the same places that remind him so much of his late wife. What to do? Buy a farm in the country, of course! The family falls in love with a house that comes with a big responsibility: a zoo.

This is a feel good family movie, with some fun on the side. Sometimes the actors try too hard to be funny, but the result is a fun time at the theater without profanity or violence. The story is predictable but light and entertaining.
