In Zookeeper, the animals at the Franklin Park Zoo love their kind-hearted caretaker, Griffin Keyes (Kevin James). Finding himself more comfortable with a lion than a lady, Griffin decides the only way to get a girl in his life is to leave the zoo and find a more glamorous job. The animals, in a panic, decide to break their time-honoured code of silence and reveal their biggest secret: they can talk! To keep Griffin from leaving, they decide to teach him the rules of courtship – animal style.

Expect a fun light hearted movie the whole family can enjoy with no bad language or violence . My partner who's 67yrs enjoyed this more than me.

Good family fare, standard plot and the usual trite and shallow female characters but a few giggles here and there.

Words that come to mind for this movie - cute, silly, fun. Not terribly original but overall I thought it was good fun with some laughs.

"Night at the Museum" meets "Dr Doolittle", with a bit of "Hitch" thrown in for good measure. Very corny. Kids will like it.

We really enjoyed this movie, really sweet and didn't have to resort to gutter antics and nudity to get a laugh. The animals were very well done. The Asian guy from The Hangover was in this but unfortunately he was wasted, def wasn't used enough.

To me, this was quite a silly movie. I was tempted to turn the movie off a few times, up until about half way thru. Anyway, stuck with it & it finally came good. Animals were cute & the gorilla was very well done. I like Ken James but thought this a bit silly, even for him. About two & a half stars really.

Not too sure about this one. It was funny in places but more in a slapstick way. I cant say I was very fussed on it and wouldnt watch it again but it is ok if you like this sort of comedy.

Not bad - effects generally work, except for when the bears are educating him (when it didn't look like they were real). Story was fun. Our 10 year olds enjoyed it.

I was a little disappointed with this film. It wasn't as funny as I was expecting but nevertheless it was enjoyable viewing with a few good laughs. The voices of some of the animals are well recognised as Cher and Stalone. The Gorilla definitely makes this movie worth watching.

Well I have been made aware by my better half that I was smiling my little peepers off throughout the movie....yes that would generally mean it was rather entertaining....question though........how does that fat dude always get the pretty chicks????? By the way throwing poop always fixes everything!!!!!!

M

simple storyline. I watched this with a 9yr old - who rarely laughed out loud in it. I on the otherhand good caught up in picking Cher and Sylvester Stallone voicing the lions - who were equally funny. This movie did run a little too long - for both the 9yr old and myself. But overall ok as a school holidays movie.
