One afternoon a few weeks ago, I have had the chance to watch Matt Damon star in a heartwarming movie that is based on a true story. We Bought A Zoo, directed by Cameron Crowe [Almost Famous, Jerry Maguire] is a masterpiece that puts a huge smile into your heart and makes it skip a beat. With a remarkable star rating average of 7.2 out of the possible perfect score of 10 from 34,721 voters [as of 11 July], We Bought A Zoo is no doubt worth checking out. [Photo credit: IMDB.com]
We Bought A Zoo’s plot is something most people can relate to, with an incredible twist, of course. With hopes of starting anew, Benjamin Mee [Damon] starts looking for a new home for his kids with the help of Mr. Stevens who is on his first day as real estate agent. Hopping from one property to another, Damon ends up purchasing a huge house located in the countryside which surprisingly comes with a zoo where he meets his love interest, Kelly Foster [Scarlett Johansson]. The family, along with the loyal crew struggle to renovate the zoo. With hard work and dedication, they manage to pull it through and re-open the zoo in time. Indeed, in life, you’ll never know what to expect!
We Bought A Zoo: The Trailer.
We Bought A Zoo reminds me of how challenging it is to find that home you’ve long been dreaming of. My family back home has been searching for one since 2011 and still can’t seem to find that perfect one. Oh. Just in case, if you are looking for a property in North Carolina, going through Wilmington NC real estate listings can lighten up your burden. Since my family does not reside in the NC area, I am just glad to know that somehow, there is one real estate listing online where we can find house and lot properties to examine and compare prices. The search is tough. One thing’s for sure though, my family’s not going to end up buying a zoo although it would be super cool to end up getting one!
How about you? Have you seen We Bought A Zoo? If you’ve had, do you love it? If you haven’t yet, a piece of advice… go watch it! You’ll definitely love every minute of it, promise!
