"We Bought A Zoo"

Here's the trailer for Cameron Crowe's "comeback" movie. I'll give him credit for going with that title, since Variety is now just itching to write that "Crowe's 'Zoo' Bought The Farm" boxoffice-failure headline... but ye gods, could this look any more like a PARODY of the very genre/style it's trying to be sincere about?

I thought, after you hear the roar, the agent would say "it's haunted."

And yet, all my mind directs me to, is how everyone turned on "Vanilla Sky". Yea....

...Wow. WOW. Matt, I love you, you've been great these last couple years (well maybe Adjustment and Contagion weren't great but they were both solid pieces of cinema, and I loved The Informant) but WHAT made you decide to do this? This looks awful.

And this is a minor complaint, but I've been around porcupines and I've never seen one flair like that. But they didn't look precisely like that, so maybe it was a different kind.

I'm not sure if it would be apropriate to have the words "from the writer of Fast Times at Ridgemont High" in the trailer

I...actually kinda like the look of this. And I don't know if it's in an ironic way or not. Help.

On the other hand: "You don't need any specialist knowledge to run a zoo. You just need a lot of heart."

What.

A lot of heart won't keep the tigers from eating your daughter, Matt.

Oh and by the way, by the looks of his hairstyle, I'd say that this was supposed to be another Tom Cruise movie, since, well, he did a great job with Jerry Maguire (another Crowe film).

Thing is, lightning rarely strikes twice in film, or anything. Oh and Cruise literally black-balled himself from most major studios.

Whilst I don't mind the trailer, the corniness is fine and what not forwhat I assume is a children's film, but YOU DO NEED SPECIALIST KNOWLEDGE to run a zoo?

I assume in this film pilots don't know how to fly planes, but they think the planes look pretty and that's enough.

Matt Damon turned into Mark Wahlberg at some point, apparently.

Should've been called "Zoo Tycoon: The Movie" and ditched sincerity and whatever the music implies the tone is for a guy trying to build a zoo.

CraftyAndy said...

someone want to explain to me what is wrong with this movie? Than again my brain may have been broken after witnessing the trailer to "One Fall" and "Johnny"

Chris said...

Who sells a zoo with a house?

"I really like this house, how much are you asking?"

"$200,000"

"That's great, I'll take it"

"Fantastic... although I should mention, there is a humpback whale in the backyard. It's a package deal"

There are not that many movie blogs around so it was a delight to find one as useful as this. Please keep up the good work.

Another good one I found was BestOnlineMovieSite.com.

"You don't need any special knowledge to run a zoo...Just a lot of HEART."

....What the SHIT is that supposed to mean!?!
No. I'm sorry. But if you're raising 47 different species from across the world, you need special f$%#ing knowledge!

Unless you're Ma-Ti from Captain Planet, HEART isn't gonna' cut it.
