I only got to watch this because it was at the bottom of my Rental list (I must have had the foresight to know it would be garbage) and when I opened the sleeve and saw the happy madison logo on the disc I knew this would be a laugh-free film.
Anyway the lead is played by Kevin James (superstar of huge turkeys: Paul blart: mall cop, and Grown ups.) both of which were produced by Adam Sandler's production company, the aforementioned Happy madison. and its about 10 or 15 years since Sandler made a funny film.
What little plot there is, revolves around a zookeeper (James) who is shy around women, so the Animals at his zoo start giving him dating tips. The special effects with the talking animals were good to its credit, but there is little plot to speak of and its definitely not a comedy unless youre aged about 4 or 5 years old.
I think the only reason this film and most other recent sandler films exist is so Sandler and all his buddies can get together and party and have a laugh, whilst getting paid millions Grownups a prime example, and raking in millions of $ more from gullible suckers who pay to watch his films, and Kevin James definately owes sandler a lot for keeping him in paid employment, as otherwise he'd struggle to get a job doing TV commercials.
To sum up, I'm glad I only rented rather than bought this, but even now I'm sorry that theres nearly 2 hours of my life I'll never get back. Avoid.
