Zookeeper | Ratings & Reviews

"A comedy whose cliché-embracing stupidity borders on the surrealistic."

Village VoiceVillage Voice

"Ultimately, it's a marketing pitch in search of a movie that proves punishingly flat."


"The simplistic slapstick targets kids, but lengthy sequences focused on James and his lady woes will bore adults, let alone young ’uns."

Total FilmTotal Film

"The director, Frank Coraci (The Wedding Singer), doesn’t impose much discipline, letting some scenes run wild and others peter out, their punch lines dangling."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"I would rather lie on a bed of nails watching Dr Doolittle for a week than see a single reel of Zookeeper again."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Look, a great movie this is not. A pleasant summer entertainment it is."

Roger EbertRoger Ebert

"Zookeeper" barely avoids a zero-star rating because of James. The bulky former star of "King of Queens" is impossible to hate no matter how much dumb slapstick he and his stunt double are required to perform."

New York PostNew York Post

"The movie is more of a genre-fortified enclosure than a comic idea that gets to run wild."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Beastly comedy for the lowest of brow."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Zookeeper (I can't believe I'm even writing this) is a dumbed-down Paul Blart."

Entertainment WeeklyEntertainment Weekly

"Some sparks of comedy and fun but largely a flat and unrewarding comedy."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"As a study in insanity, Zookeeper is mildly interesting. But as a kiddie comedy, it’s something to watch only once the little ones have worn out their Dr. Doolittle DVD."
