"We Bought A Zoo"
Pro: Director and screenwriter Cameron Crowe appears back in "Jerry Maguire" mode with this "based on a true story" drama featuring Matt Damon as a father who ends up acquiring a private zoo with no idea how to run it. Scarlett Johansson plays his love interest.
Con: Crowe hasn't made a standout picture since "Almost Famous" in 2000. "Vanilla Sky" was an almost literal adaptation of a better Spanish film ("Open Your Eyes") and his follow up, "Elizabethtown," was one of the biggest misfires of his career. "Zoo" would have to be a major crowd and industry pleaser to make the field.
