In Zookeeper, the animals at the Franklin Park Zoo love their kindhearted caretaker, Griffin Keyes (Kevin James). Finding himself more comfortable with a lion than a lady, Griffin decides the only way to get a girl in his life is to leave the zoo and find a more glamorous job. The animals, in a panic, decide to break their time-honored code of silence and reveal their biggest secret: they can talk! To keep Griffin from leaving, they decide to teach him the rules of courtship - animal style. -- (C) Sony Pictures Publicity

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Funniest moments? The outtakes during the closing credits. I rest my case."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Will most audiences mind this? Probably not. Should they? Of course. They deserve better and frankly, so does Kevin James."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Movies like "Zookeeper" make you hate movies, restaurants, animals, and Earth."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"A high concept-movie falls almost as flat as star Kevin James doing pratfalls."
‑ Marsha McCreadie, Film Journal International

‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"I think there should be a subdivision of the ASPCA -- American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Audiences."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Unfortunately, nobody had the good sense to call the comedy authorities and shut this Zookeeper down."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"Kevin James' new comedy Zookeeper may be popular with the kiddos, but slapstick humor and a cookie-cutter storyline doom it for adults."
‑ Amy Curtis, We Got This Covered
"Doesn't belabor its punch lines and it maximizes James' likeability to a mostly winning result."
‑ Bruce Bennett, Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
"Sometimes a kid's movie is just a kid's movie. In the case of Zookeeper, it's a place where young imaginations go to die."
‑ Rob Humanick, Suite101.com
"Did we mention that things just go better with Kevin James? Well-trodden comedy hooks become strangely more amusing. Goofball physical shtick elicits broader smiles. The bumblingly stupid is made endearing."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"A children's comedy about talking animals that feels as if it were written by children or, perhaps, by talking animals."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Give Kevin James this much credit -- the dude leaves it all on the field, even when the movie's bad."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"The latest in an increasingly long line of misbegotten Kevin James comedies..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"From the unstoppable Adam Sandler hit factory comes this pleasant, kid-friendly, ultra-formulaic shlub-does-good comedy."
‑ Jim Schembri, The Age (Australia)
