because he was a zookeeper. She had no problem
dating him, but there was no way she could marry someone of such lowly
Now she has reappeared in his life because her friend's about to marry Griffin's brother, and this
means she'll be hanging around the zoo for the next several days, so Griffin wants to win her back. He has
overlooked the fact that her single objection to him five years ago hasn't changed.
But, because the animals love Griffin, they decide to help him. There's the lion and lioness (voiced by Sylvester Stallone and Cher);
there's an irritating monkey (Adam Sandler), two quarrelsome bears (Jon Favreau and Faizon
Love) and a neurotic elephant (Judd Apatow), the giraffe (Maya Rudolph) and a gorilla (Nick Nolte).
Frustrated with what an idiot this guy is, the animals break their
vow of silence and just speak to him directly, giving him mating-ritual
advice based on their own knowledge. So now that Griffin has more confidence and is
standing up to his rival (Joe Rogan) and Stephanie starts to like him better. He seals the deal by
making her jealous, with his lovely co-worker, Kate (Rosario
Dawson). Next thing you know Griffin has quit the zoo to work at his brother's luxury auto
he realizes he misses the zoo, the animals, and Kate, with whom he's
actually in love.
Director Frank Coraci ("Waterboy") has made a film that's essentially inappropriate for children in terms of
content, qnd it's far too simple-minded and derivative for
adults. But who's left? You guessed it....hardly anybody.
