Worth a visitBy Widzy (7 reviews) from Glasgow , 12 Mar 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]
[Highly rated reviewer]This is a very funny, and at times very emotional film based on a true story. If you liked Marley & Me you will love this. The estate agent character plays a great role in the movie. Something for everyone to enjoy including the kids.

Good filmBy winnieh (3 reviews) , 13 Apr 2013Good family, feel good movie. Enjoyed this a lot. Some sadness through the death of the mother, but dealt with well. Not a classic, but a good watch for a relaxing evening.
Good afternoon filmBy a customer , 09 Apr 2013This film isn't going to change your life but it is a lovely afternoon watch, or one to watch with the kids. The death of his wife is dealt with sensitively and the problems encountered at the zoo are handled realistically. It really inspired me to find out more about the zoo it was based on, in Dartmoor, and I am now investigating volunteering there!
Difficult sentimentalityBy LewP (2 reviews) , 09 Apr 2013An enjoyable film but way too sentimental and milks the loss of the perfect wife and mother until it hurts! How can they ever move on from her? Pathos is loaded onto the spoon so heavily that at times it makes any plot developments very difficult to digest. However, Damon, Johansson and in particular Thomas Haden Church as the brother and Angus Macfadyen as the Scottish keeper do their best to salvage human emotion from the sugar-drenched plot. The animals are good too.
