Again today, I’m tying my blog post to a recent movie. This weekend, we watched a DVD of the 2011 movie “We Bought a Zoo,” starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson. What we thought would be an interesting movie for our kids turned out to be a rather serious movie with often somber overtones. It did have its amusing parts and the kids liked the animal scenes, but overall I’m not exactly sure it was really a kid-friendly movie. That’s not to say I didn’t like it; I’d give it a solid B.
