After Benjamin loses his wife, he purchases a large house that has a zoo in an effort to start his life over. This is welcome news for his daughter, but his son is not happy about it. The zoo is badly in need of renovation and Benjamin sets about the work with the head keeper, Kelly, and the rest of the zoo staff. But, the zoo soon runs into financial trouble. The staff must get the zoo back to it's former glory and pass inspection in time for its grand opening.
"We Bought a Zoo provides a welcome seasonal dash of wholesomeness and humor, but it's also a heartening celebration of second acts, even at their most unwelcome." - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
