We Bought a Zoo Blu-Ray & DVD April 3rd

If you are looking for a great family friendly movie, I have a gem for you! We Bought a Zoo, is a hearwarming movie that the whole family will love.

Featuring Family Friendly Audio Track The Whole Family Will Go Wild for this Heartwarming Adventure Starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson On Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download April 3

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous, Jerry Maguire) and starring Matt Damon (Contagion, True Grit), Scarlett Johansson (Iron Man 2, Vicky Cristina Barcelona) and Thomas Haden Church (Easy A, Sideways), WE BOUGHT A ZOO is a sweet-natured tale that you'll want to see with your kids (Liz Braun, Jam! Movies).

Benjamin Mee (Damon) is a Los Angeles newspaper columnist and adventure writer who, as a single father, faces the challenges of raising his two young children.  Hoping that a fresh start and a new life will restore their family spirit, Mee quits his job and buys an old rural house outside the city with a unique bonus feature: a zoo named the Rosemoor Animal Park, where dozens of animals reside under the care of head zookeeper Kelly Foster (Johansson) and her dedicated team. With no experience, limited time and a shoestring budget, Mee sets out with the support of his family and the local community to reopen the zoo. Now, Benjamin is no longer reporting an adventure story; he’s living it in his own backyard.

Featuring an incredible musical score composed by Jansi of the band Sigur , the WE BOUGHT A ZOO Blu-ray is loaded with over 2½ hours of special features including 20 deleted and extended scenes, a gag reel, four behind-the-scenes featurettes, commentary with Director Cameron Crowe, star J.B. Smoove (The Sitter, Curb Your Enthusiasm) and Editor Mark Livolsi, and more. The film also features an English Family Friendly Audio Track that earned the Dove Seal of Approval.  The Blu-ray and DVD will be available for an average retail price of $24.99 and $19.99 respectively. Prebook is March 7.

 Our Take:

We Bought a Zoo is a movie that tugs on your heartstrings, Benjamin and his kids are very upset at the loss of their mother. Benjamin’s son is doing poorly in school and is expelled, and he has to move.. This are looking very bad for poor Benjamin and his family what is he going to do?? Well that is when the zoo fits in…

Of course being the big animal fan my daughter just loved the movie (I think we have a future vegetarian with my daughter) she just loved seeing all of the different animals. I have to say this is one of the better movies I have seen in a while, it is a cute story and I loved seeing the animals too.  I have to say I got chocked up and cried a bit during this movie, but it is not a sappy cry filled movie, it is funny and has a great story as well. I think  Matt Damon fit in well for the family man role, he did a great job, and I enjoy wating him as an actor. (and it does not hurt that he is not bad to look at).

So what happens to Benjamin and his family, how did the zoo work out? Well I will not spoil the movie for you, make sure to pick this movie up to find out.

This is a feel good family movie, that I would recommend. And this is out 4/3/12 just in time to pick this up for Easter! Make sure to pick up this cute family movie at a store near you.
