Does your family love watching warmhearted movies? I got just the movie for you, it's We Bought A Zoo! It's a great movie and my family loved it! It's about a man that loses his wife and has two children. He's not sure what to do with his life or his children's lives. Then he decides it's time to move, not sure where, but when he sees the house he'll know, it's the one! When he's out in the country with his real estate agent, he happens to see the perfect house. His young daughter loves it, but his older son didn't want to move in the first place.
The story gets better and better. Soon he's the owner of a zoo! There's plenty of animals and plenty of work to be done before opening day. Everybody is hard at work except for his son, but that changes and everybody is so happy for opening day. This is a great movie for the whole family, you'll enjoy it!
This movie came out on April 3rd, so be sure to pick up a copy! You can use the study guide below before you watch the movie! It has christian values and awesome scriptures to ponder about.

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment presents an inspiring adventure based on a true story of one man who brought a zoo back to life and family back together in WE BOUGHT A ZOO, which came out on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download April 3. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous, Jerry Maguire) and starring Matt Damon (Contagion, True Grit), Scarlett Johansson (Iron Man 2, Vicky Cristina Barcelona) and Thomas Haden Church (Easy A, Sideways), WE BOUGHT A ZOO is “a sweet-natured tale…that you’ll want to see with your kids” (Liz Braun, Jam! Movies).
Benjamin Mee (Damon) is a Los Angeles newspaper columnist and adventure writer who, as a single father, faces the challenges of raising his two young children. Hoping that a fresh start and a new life will restore their family spirit, Mee quits his job and buys an old rural house outside the city with a unique bonus feature: a zoo named the Rosemoor Animal Park, where dozens of animals reside under the care of head zookeeper Kelly Foster (Johansson) and her dedicated team. With no experience, limited time and a shoestring budget, Mee sets out with the support of his family and the local community to reopen the zoo. Now, Benjamin is no longer reporting an adventure story; he’s living it in his own backyard.
