Ad Feedback

The dramatic comedy 'We Bought a Zoo' opened in movie theaters across the nation this week.

The film tells the tale of a widower (Matt Damon) who, in hopes of helping his family heal from his wife's death, buys a house with a zoo in the backyard.

"The movie is more closely represented by a quote I once saw from author and grief expert Hilary Stanton Zunin: 'The risk of love is loss, and the price of loss is grief-But the pain of grief is only a shadow when compared with the pain of never risking love,'" writes Plugged In Online movie critic Bob Hoose.

Focus on the Family's Bob Waliszewski reviewed "We Bought a Zoo" and other films on the CBN News Channel Midday News, Jan. 6. Click play to watch Bob's reviews.
