We Bought A Zoo is one of the best movies I went to see in 2011.
It's a comedy-drama based on a memoir by Benjamin Mee. The real zoo is in England, but for the purpose of this movie it is set in California. It stars Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson. It's about a recently widowed-father who buys a run-down zoo, moves his two kids to the country, begins to rebuild the zoo, and their lives.
My husband and I went to see it New Year's Day and weren't disappointed. The little girl who plays Damon's daughter is adorable and Matt Damon isn't so bad either. I recommend it for a bit of light entertainment and good, clean, family fun.
Hope you enjoy it!!!
