We Bought A Zoo

I went to go see this movie because the original movie we wanted to see was sold out. Turned out, it wasn’t the worst movie to see instead of my original choice. This movie was a good choice for a family-friendly outing (which it turned out to be with the rest of the audience). We […]

Although it does seem like a remake for the first half of the movie, then strays away, and blows Coyote Ugly out of the water.   The movie starts off with Ali (Christina Aguilera) a small-town Iowa waitress, who quits her job and moves to LA […]
