Since being a mom I have limited time to go out and do the things I used to do when I was single or without a child. Things like going to the mall with friends and watching movies, which I did weekly when I was in college, took a back seat. The last time I have been to a movie theater was...I can't even remember! I think it was when I watched Harry Potter 7 Part 1. Harry Potter is a big favorite and I even afforded not to watch the much awaited Part 2. I just don't have the urge anymore since I'd rather spend the time at home with Adam. But with this film, I really am looking for time to watch it!
We Bought a Zoo is a movie I think I will really learn a lot because I REALLY WANT A ZOO! At first, I actually just want to build my own animal sanctuary for tigers. Since they are dwindling in numbers I really want to help bring back the species to a healthier number. Already consulted hubby and brother about this and they are both aboard with the idea. (This is the reason why I can't wand won't marry a non-animal lover.) But then I started wanting to include other animals like elephants and other wild animals who are dwindling in numbers. The plan is grand, I know, and we are working our butt of to save for this dream We actually have a plan on how we can in a few years from now afford this. Then now I came to thinking why not build a zoo so that people can also be educated on how to take care of the environment and animals like what I saw in Ocean Adventure in Hong Kong where they teach the park goers about the Panda. That would be hitting two birds in one stone: education and making the project sustainable.
So back to the movie We Bought a Zoo. Here is the trailer. And as icing on the cake, it even stars Matt Damon!
