A newly widowed father of 2 buys a property which just happens to include a nearly defunct zoo - complete with lion, bear, tiger, etc. His children have the modern attitudes we expect, and their father is sincere about making it all work. Even the ferocious animals and their keepers- part of the package deal -are loveable through it all. Will they meet the deadline set by that nasty inspector?
More feet, more songs, more music, more characters ... more everything, but less of story than the original. The heart of the film is scattered, but it fails to connect as satisfactorily as it did before
The first was an ok, enjoyable film, however, i was VERY dissatisfied with this one. the story follows a tragic event where the penguins are trapped and cannot escape from their home cove. they try everything from bombarding the walls of the cove to trying to fly, and continue with ridiculous ideas of escape to the point where you just have to say \"GET ON WITH IT!!\" now that i've described 3\/4ths of the movie to you, i can honestly say that the other 1\/4th isnt adding much more. also, pay attention to the end, because the \"message\" your going to notice was completely unacceptable, and made the movie go from painful to just plain evil. Im still awaiting an apology from disney.
A one-joke affair about conjoined twins that feels like it bypassed the scripting stage and was filmed directly from the pitch, the comedy remains resoundingly unfunny despite the strained efforts of stars Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear.
