What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Helen Herimbi The lion and tigers are scene-stealers in parts, but the popcorn would be a better reason to go to the cinema than to see this film.
Jeanne Calitz Dié dieretein gaan harte steel.
David Rooney Matt Damon shines in uplifting family tale.
Mark Olsen For the birds.
C. Fuchs This is pretty much instantly forgettable stuff once you'll be away from it for a while. But like a real zoo experience, it has enough charms and winning moments to make it enjoyable enough during the actual visit.
Tomatometer We Bought a Zoo is a transparently cloying effort by director Cameron Crowe, but Matt Damon makes for a sympathetic central character.
