New Kevin James ‘Zookeeper’ Movie Delivered Silly Laughs & More
New Kevin James ‘Zookeeper’ movie delivered silly laughs & more. Columbia Pictures released their new Kevin James, branded,comedy flick “Zookeeper” into theaters this weekend. I just watched it,and thought it was ok,but it was a little on the silly side for me. It’s a good family movie,though. It stars: Kevin James, Rosario Dawson, Leslie Bibb, Joe Rogen, Ken Jeong, Cher, Nick Nolte, Adam Sandler, Sylvester Stallone, Judd Apatow, Jon Favreau, Maya Rudolph,and Faizon Love.
In the flick, character Griffin Keyes (Kevin James) has issues with a girl named Stephanie (Leslie Bibb) because she turned down his marriage proposal five years ago for working in a zoo. Five years later, she shows back up at Griffin’s brother’s wedding,and immediately drives Griffin nuts when all the memories start flowing back.
Eventually, Griffin starts to get convinced that he needs to quit the zoo in order to land a girl like Stephanie,but the animals step in to stop him by revealing they can talk. They give him advice on how to score with Stephanie.
He also uses a girl who works at the zoo named Kate (Rosario Dawson) to make Stephanie jealous. Their tips and plan end up working to get Stephanie back. However, Griffin ends up realizing that Stephanie isn’t really the girl for him because she tries to change him into someone he doesn’t want to be.
It ends up concluding with Griffin using his ape friend to hunt down the girl Kate, who he used before, after realizing she’s who he really likes. I thought the film was pretty comical,but with the animals talking and stuff,it came off a bit silly. There’s one scene where a pretty girl at a bar ends up falling in love with the ape. Like really? Come on. It was a little out there for me. The animal voices were pretty funny. It was just kinda weird.
I liked Kevin James. He’s always pretty funny,and delivered some great comical scenes that included him wrecking a cocktail party setting by swinging around on curtains,running and hitting his head on stuff,and just bumbling around a lot. That Asian guy Ken Jeong from the “Hangover” movies was also in it as character Venom. He had a few funny scenes. Overall, I gave it like a C+ grade. It was ok.
