The 7 Best Backhanded Compliments From Zookeeper Reviews

  • “Sure, it’s silly without shame, and predictably sentimental. But Zookeeper is the most thoroughly enjoyable movie for the entire family in theaters right now. I can’t believe I just typed that about a Kevin James flick with talking animals.” Steve Persall, The St. Petersburg Times
  • “It’s all very ho-hum, though James, who’s like Jason Alexander with a touch of Jeremy Piven, is still a schmo you can’t help rooting for.” Owen Gleiberman, EW
  • “As far as complete wastes of time go, Zookeeper is not especially offensive” Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
  • “In a summer season where a family’s film options so far have been a lukewarm Mr. Popper’s Penguins and the downright disappointing Cars 2, Coraci’s Zookeeper — yes, it surprises me as much as anyone — ends up being something of, well, a keeper.” Sean O’Connell, The Washington Post
  • “Look, a great movie this is not. A pleasant summer entertainment it is.” Roger Ebert
  • “As a study in insanity, Zookeeper is mildly interesting.” Keith Phipps, The A.V. Club
  • “It’s all mildly deplorable and instantly forgettable. Kevin James remains a potentially appealing movie star — if only he didn’t have to be in Kevin James movies.” Richard Corliss, Time
