"Zookeeper"

Y'know, the problem isn't that "talking animals help a dipshit zookeeper get laid" is in itself a bad idea for a comedy...


...but it's probably a bad idea for THIS comedy.

When your movie looks like Pauly Shore could be substituted into the lead role without issue... then you have problems.

You know, when I saw the words "zoo"
and "bad comedy," the mental image of Ben Stiller pop into mind.

Damn does he suck!!
-_-

The only positive to come from this is we are one step closer to a live action "Hair Bear Bunch" movie which I so totally go see.

great, I usually get more views reviewing movies like this so I know I'll end up seeing it. First problem, porcupines do not shoot quills, where did this stupid myth come from?
This looks more like a Brendan Fraiser movie. IN fact, that's what I'll call the main character from now on.

*sigh* Well, I'll probably see it anyway just to hear Talking Heads on the soundtrack for a movie, and maybe in hopes that someone will make a GOOD version of this premise someday.

I disagree, Bob. This is a bad idea for ANY comedy.

In fact, why even call this a comedy at all? I didn't laugh once. It might as well have been a Mr. Ed remake by Disney for all the funny it pumped out.

Dear Kevin James,
The woman is obviously not worth it, if she chooses not to marry you based solely on your occupation. Find someone else. Like Allegra Cole in that other movie you did, that was better.
Thanks.

Is this definitive proof there is no god?

Probably not. But is it proof Comedies starring Kevin James are a genuine waste of our precious oxygen?

yeah.

this.....got green-lit, this got a budget, a full crew worked on this without a second thought for months...THIS ALONE MAKES ME NOT WANT TO MAKE MOVIES ANYMORE...

@William,

To be fair, they're kinda letting you know right up front that she's going to turn out to be bad and/or not worth it (she probably hates animals, too) and that he'll wind up with Rosario Dawson - who will, of course, be a "buddy" he's totally never noticed liked him before. In fact, how much do you wanna bet the finale involves some variation of the animals ALSO revealing their secret to her and/or helping to pull a Graduate move at the wedding?

William Righetti said...

Bob, the icing on this terrible cake would be what you just mentioned, but add Kevin's Character, Rosarios Character, and all the animals ending up living together in some big jungle gym filled mansion. Except that that sounds too... cool an ending for a movie of this sort.

Aw heck, I actually think it looks kinda cute. At the very least, I feel better about it than stuff like the Smurfs movie.

Still, and I don't think I'm alone in this, I can hardly think of this movie and not be reminded of a certain sketch: http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/548a01e54c

At least this looks better than that "Furry Vengeance" crap that Brendon Frasier was in.
Watched it on TV... I mean I knew it was gonna be bad and all... but my god was than an awful movie.
I feel bad for Kevin James getting typecasted for this kind of crap.
He's actually a pretty good actor and can be genuinely funny when he's not trying to be the next Chris Farley.
I just hope he finds his hit movie soon before he turns into another Russel Brand.

I love how people who can't suspend disbelief to watch sci fi can suspend disbelief that women don't go gooey over a guy who looks after "poor cute wittle aminals" for a living.

Even before watching the trailer, the still has me remembering "The Mighty Boosh".
