It's hot outside, and if you're going to go to a zoo, what better way than inside a cool movie theater, with hot buttered popcorn and a soft drink? Throw in some chocolate for good measure, and you have a fun family outing, if adults don't mind passing the time while the kids laugh. Hollywood reviewers aren't too fond of this film, but family reviewers are a bit kinder. Guess you'll have to go see for yourself.
Griffin Keyes (Kevin James) is the kindhearted ZOOKEEPER at the Franklin Park Zoo. The animals love him, but he finds 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. In a panic, the animals decide to break their time-honored 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.
ZOOKEEPER is rated PG for some rude and suggestive humor and language.
