LISTAPP MOVIE CLUB: WE BOUGHT A ZOO

Hey hey, let's watch a movie together! Cc: @nathanveshecco @LizDawson
  1. If you want in, just press play when the clock strikes 8pm EST!
    We'll use this list to discuss all thing WBAZ including but not limited to: Matt Damon's ugly sweaters, the likelihood of real life ScarJo having the credentials to be a zookeeper, and the magic of Thomas Haden Church.
  2. Ok—We Bought A Zoo may not be Cameron Crowe's best movie (or even close in popular opinion), but it's wonderful and warm and I love it, and am so glad you do too, @nathanveshecco & @alys (and hopefully other people here). I think it's unfair to compare it to Almost Famous or Jerry Maguire—it's not trying to BE like those movies.

  11. @nathanveshecco lololol I guess that jealousy makes sense
  12. 13 year old me would've had such a crush on Dylan. That hair! That face! That artistic, melancholic, sad/angry spirit!

  13. Rosie's handwriting warms my heart. Love her.
  14. Rosie making the lunch for her older brother and herself is just such a sweet but sad scene
    Suggested by   @LizDawson
  15. In running for fave line: their happy's too loud
  16. The real estate scene followed by driving up to the zoo: the moments you know this soundtrack is going to be EXCELLENT
    Suggested by   @LizDawson
  17. Just an FYI that Harry styles pronounces zebras like it rhymes with Debra. You're welcome
  18. Thomas Haden Church (Ben's older brother) is one of Jose actors I forget about but then see in a movie and I'm like "oh yeah! I love him!!". So good.

  19. Oh my god this song though 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 "on by, on by, on by"
  20. The first looks between Lilly and Dylan. So awkward and adorable and really captures teen relations 😱😂
    Suggested by   @LizDawson
  21. ScarJo walks with such purpose. Calm it down.
  22. Tbh I find it very irritating that he wants to be called Benjamin
  23. Matt Damon, you cute but First Choice Haircutters is begging to get acquainted w you.
  24. Ohhh Elle Fanning being so sweet and eager cringe-worthy but sweet
    Suggested by   @LizDawson
  25. K Rosie is like a 40 year old in a tiny child's body. So perceptive. Like the That's So Raven of her generation
  26. Dylan watching his Dad and his sister talking about his Mom😢
    Suggested by   @LizDawson
  27. John Michael Higgins is peeeerfect as Walter Ferris, Zoo Inspector 😂
    Suggested by   @LizDawson
  28. Ben kicking the barrel and picking it back up is very Jennifer Connelly in He's Just Not That Into You
  29. jónsi's music adds so much to this movie
    Suggested by   @LizDawson
  30. PSA: ScarJo is manspreading in the staff meeting scene. #offended. JK.
  31. Peace out Rhonda, take your snide negativity with you
    Suggested by   @LizDawson
  32. EVE IS MY GIRL. LOVE LOVE LOVE
  33. What are our collective thoughts on Damon in full denim? Denim Damon.
  34. That brief scene is excellent, with the laptop; I think Ben's relationship with his wife, his grief throughout, is handled so well—it faces and embraces grief and portrays it well without downplaying it.
    Suggested by   @LizDawson
  35. And then following Ben trying to crush his feelings and then yelling and trying to keep Spar alive when Spar knows it's his time. So well done.
    Suggested by   @LizDawson
  36. The real dream is someone memorizing your snack choices right? Twizzlers for me.
  37. My #1 fave moment is the tiger drawing. No question. So good.
  38. 20 seconds line obviously makes the top lines cut. I submit that so does, "I'm your fan man. Don't you know that by now?"
    Suggested by   @LizDawson
  39. Dylan and lily are everything to me
  40. Hi. I'm full out sobbing at the crowd/fallen tree. K bye.
  41. Can't even handle these red kites
  42. Benjamin is such a corny dad and IM HERE FOR IT
  43. LOVE IS REAL I LOVE EVERYTHING IVE NEVER BEEN HAPPIER AND LIFE IS GRAND
  44. The ending!💜❤️👏🏼😊

  45. I kept track and the cry count for me was: 7
  46. One critique—and I'm sorry in advance for being a Debbie downer here—but it IS super white. Would've been bolstered by some diversity among the main or secondary characters, besides just Realtor and Home Depot lady.
