We Bought a Zoo – Movie review

If you are looking for a movie you can take your mother, wife, kids and grandkids to then “We Bought a Zoo” is for you. Rated “G” it is an enjoyable movie with a subtle message to live in the present not the past and that we all need to communicate better with our kids and our parents.  No sex and minimal if any cursing, I did not notice any but I may have missed something. While not a Christian movie Zoo harkens back to the movies I enjoyed as a child and still like to catch on the tube.

Zoo tells the story of a young father raising two kids, one a teen boy and the other a young girl. The mother has recently died and we see this family searching for how to go on with life.

People today complain that Hollywood does not make movies for families that are not animated. Zoo is a rare treat that people need to get out of the house and see. Let your dollars do the talking and maybe Hollywood will listen.

Have a blessed day,



About dwwork

The name of this blog is taken from 1 Peter 3:13 - “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience. This verse became special to me over ten years ago when I was asked to teach an adult Sunday school class on Christian apologetics. This interest grew over the years to the point that I took some graduate level classes in apologetics. I think the best way to be prepared to give and answer to everyone who asks is to know scripture. It is my hope that through these short devotionals the reader will become more familiar with each verse. I have tried when possible to make them personal hoping in some small way to show that God’s word written over two thousand years ago is still relevant today. In the writing of these short devotionals I have been able to better understand how God’s word impacts my life. It is my hope that you too will come closer to our Lord Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. Finally, if the reader finds anything in conflict with scripture please let me know. God’s word is the final authority always overrules anything I might write. David
