Yeah, it's that kind of movie. Adorable kids, a horrible event that changes lives and a single dad who wants to do the best but just doesn't know how. Then throw in a zoo. You've seen this before, right?
Well, maybe you have, and maybe you haven't, but I'll tell you something. It doesn't matter. Once the story goes, you're on the journey and with this movie, it's an adventure you cannot be disappointed by if you have any heart or love in you at all.
I was feeling tired and a little down. I wanted a distraction, but something with some meaning. Nothing stupid or mindless, but I didn't need the universe saved, just the sense that it was good to be human and alive.
Now that I've seen it, I think this one goes on my 100 list. My island list. One of the movies where if I stumbled across it while flipping channels on TV, I would watch it until the end, just because. It's that kind of movie.
Grab a snack, watch this with someone you like to hug and enjoy some quality time.
