I recently saw the new movie “Zookeeper” with Kevin James as Griffin the chubby zookeeper. The main story is that he really likes this girl but he keeps striking out. So the animals at the zoo (who can talk to Griffin) give him advice so he can be a big shot. I also see why the movie is rated PG with animals saying the H word. It’s pretty much the only cuss word they say. The movie has a star studded cast with Sylvester Stallone providing his voice as the great lion named “Joe” and Ken Jeong, the guy in the “Community” series and in the new Transformers movie, who plays the guy who takes care of the reptiles. His name is Venom. Cher’s voice whoever that is (I guess she’s famous) is the lady lioness.

Warning: I’m about to reveal my favorite part of the movie. If you don’t want to know about it and keep the movie a surprise don’t read the words in bold writing:

My favorite part was the party at T.G.I Fridays. Where Griffin and the gorilla Bernie just have a great time hanging around.

Hope I didn’t spoil the movie.

So if I rated the movie to 1 to 10 I would give it a 6 or 7.

I think it does a good job sending out a message to be kind to animals. The one mean zoo keeper ends up getting just desserts in the end – but I’ll let you see the movie.

I hope you check it out.
