We Bought A Zoo

2011 Comedy-drama film based on the 2008 memoir of the same name by Benjamin Mee. It tells the story of Mee and his family who just moved into a dilapidated zoo and took on the challenge of preparing the zoo for its reopening to the public.

Favorite Lines:

You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.
--Benjamin Mee

It is what it is. Sometimes you don't know what it is until you see what it is. You know? Once you see what it is, then you can figure out.
--Mr. Stevens

I have a question for you. You're some random guy from the city, no one in the zoo community has ever heard of you. You know nothing about animals and you moved into a dump. I mean, what kind of regular person just up and buys a place like this? Especially somebody with kids. Why?
--Kelly Foster

Oh, this next part's kind of hurtful. It says, listen to your heart not your brother. She used three exclamation marks.
--Duncan Mee
