The theatrical trailer for ZOOKEEPER has appeared online thanks to Yahoo, a movie starring Kevin James as a zookeeper who can speak and communicate with the animals. Kevin James is like the new Adam Sandler (who happens to be in this), as he seems to mold himself into a similar character actor and 99.5% of the movie’s he’s in are bad, probably the same case with this one. I’ve only watched one full movie of his to the end and that was Paul Bart Mall Cop; but I had no choice as I was on a longhaul flight to China where Boy With The Stripped Pjammas (not a comedy!) and Hotel For Dogs were the other options, so no choice in the matter! The other movies I’ve simply walked out of! But ,what else Zookeeper does, is provide testament to just what Morgan Spurlock was documenting in his current film (about product placement in film & tv). This is the longest advert for TGI Fridays! This is comes across as a bad movie, but it should really be the children who judge this and not the adults as it is aimed towards their demographic.
The Zookeeper also has Rosario Dawson, Leslie Bibb, Cher, Nick Nolte, Adam Sandler, and Sylvester Stallone starring/voices with Frank Coraci (wedding Singer, Click, The Waterboy) directing, the movie is scheduled for a july 29th release date (8th July USA)
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. The film also stars Rosario Dawson and Leslie Bibb and features the voices of Cher, Nick Nolte, Adam Sandler, and Sylvester Stallone
