This movie is actually quite hilarious, especially the first time you see it. There are definitely some jokes that make you want to groan, but is an overall funny movie. It has a great message about chasing your dreams, not someone else's. It is rather harmless, in words and deeds. The animal portrayal of behavior sets them apart from humans. Showing that people sometimes make dumb mistakes but can learn from those mistakes and come to understand more about themselves and their relationships with others. Although the zookeeper is an animal advocate, and cares about others beside himself, he realizes he is a human and they are animals after all. It is also typical, I am sorry to say, of the attitudes of some in the world today toward those who are attractive and capable of working hard at what they enjoy. There are also some in this world that are typically wealthy lazy people that glut themselves on the riches and finer things of life, as they believe, not having a clue about how the poor middle class actually have to work for a living. Over all there were some slower parts of the movie and some silliness that many of us can actually relate to. I really thought it was a good clean movie and had a lot of positives come from it. I would not be afraid to take my younger children to see it. However it would not appeal to those below the age of about 9. I think more movies of this type need to be produced. Clean, Family viewing with positive messages, with no cursing, and none of the extreme violence of the movies today. Violence is becoming more and more viewed as the norm and I can see many ramifications that are coming from that in this world today. The violence and adultism is so prevalent today in the movies and that is exactly what we are reaping the benefits of in our court rooms today.
