John Warrender’s review:
Or to give it the correct title, We Bought A Zoo Located Nine Miles From Target And Shot Almost Entirely During The Golden Hour. Yet more excruciating whimsy from Cameron Crowe, a man who appears to be solely concerned with telling stories about himself and his record collection even when the true story actually happened to other people. Bad enough that the dreaded Aline Brosh McKenna co-wrote without him still unrepentant after the Elizabethtown debacle and ladling treacle over everything. Gets a full star for Scarlett Johanssen, Elle Fanning and an Altered States reference. Otherwise, this zoo is a danger to the populace and needs to be shut down immediately.
