Vox Populi

In the interest of fairness towards Cameron Crowe‘s We Bought A Zoo, which I wasn’t entirely sold on, I’m told that it sold out all over (New York, Philly, Boston, Kansas City, Memphis, Detroit, Orlando, Salt Lake City, L.A., etc.) during last Saturday night’s nationwide sneak, and that the Fox team did some polling and found that it scored excellent with 70% and highly favorable with 94%. 82% said they’d give Zoo a definite recommend. Even if you knock those numbers down to account for a general reluctance to speak bluntly to strangers, the film still did pretty well. So I get it. I’m in the minority.

    Hmmm, didn’t see any polling outside of my screening in Seattle, which maybe had 20 people in it.

    @Brad Brevet:

    Same for me – maybe 20 people total in Virginia, nobody asking any questions after the screening…

    Yes, but Jeff, didn’t you half-like most of it and love the last act? Doesn’t that put you in the “recommend” category rather than the minority? I know you didn’t love all of it, but does that mean you would, in good conscience, tell somebody NOT to see it?

    I haven’t seen the movie, but the fact that people are responding so positively to a new Cameron Crowe movie, to me, seems like a good reason to smile, if not celebrate outright.

    MarkVH, you sound like my wife. “But you said you liked my parents!?” Jeffrey’s review was an cautious pan, written with kid gloves, regarding a director that he has affection for personally.

  • JR

    Mark nailed it…

  • I agree with you roo , the film still did pretty well! i like the film very much .
