Two Jews' Review 'We Bought A Zoo' And Experience 'Christmas Miracle'

December 21st, 2011 11:00am EST
We Bought A Zoo
Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin Schwartz: 'Sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage and I promise something great will happen'. Ben (Matt Damon) says this terrific line to his teenage son Dylan (Colin Ford). Ben got the line from his older brother Duncan (Thomas Haden Church) and it's just one of the many awesome lines of dialogue in Cameron Crowe's new film 'We Bought a Zoo'.

I absolutely loved this movie.

From the first scene where Ben asks his super adorable 7 year old daughter Rosie (Maggie Elizabeth Jones), how he's doing as a dad? She replies, 'Well at least you h...

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals bosses have urged moviemaker Cameron Crowe to add a warning to the end of his new Matt Damon film We Bought A Zoo following the recent Ohio wildlife sanctuary drama, which ended with the deaths of escaped lions, tiger and bears.

Animal rights activists have taken aim at moviemaker Cameron Crowe for using a live monkey in his new movie We Bought a Zoo.

Leading primatologist Dr. Iqbal Malik has written to the Almost Famous director on behalf of PETA, urging him to rethink using animal actors in future films after he hired Crystal, the capuchin monkey from The Hangover sequel, for his new movie, which stars Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson.

Dr. Malik, who has studied monkeys for 30 years from her base in New Delhi, India, points out that monkeys are "like Mickey Rourke" because they "do nothing you tell them to."

Matt Damon Had Special Music Interests While Filming 'We Bought A Zoo'

August 6th, 2011 10:30am EDT
Matt Damon
Matt Damon's new movie "We Bought A Zoo" was a very musical experience because he insisted director Cameron Crowe play Sigur Ros star Jonsi's soundtrack tunes on the set.

In the film, Damon plays real-life widower Benjamin Mee, who brought a dilapidated zoo back to life in honor of his late wife - and he found the Icelandic star's music, and other tunes Crowe played on the set, helpful for his character building.

Crowe tells WENN, "We played Jonsi's music a lot in the making of the movie, along with some Pearl Jam, too, and Neil Young. Matt Damon is a big fan of all this music, so we lite...

Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz is anything but a predictable actor. This Friday, “Bad Teacher” opens and will showcase Diaz’s R-rated comedy skills opposite Justin Timerlake and Jason Segel, an alumnus of the Judd Apatow school of raunchy humor. Directed by Jake Kasdan (“Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story”), Diaz stars as the world’s worst teacher who would rather get high in her car than teach her kids anything. While most moviegoers see her as just a pretty face who pops up in mediocre films, Diaz has had an incredibly unique and varied career in Hollywood over the last two decades.

Coming-Of-Age Films That We All Remember

July 8th, 2009 1:00pm EDT
SuperBad
Making the transition from adolescence into adulthood is a critical phase in an individual's life. This coming-of-age period, which has been coined "emerging adulthood" by Clark University research professor, Dr. Jeffrey Arnett, is characterized by identity exploration, self-focus, instability, a belief in boundless possibilities, and feeling in-between. According to Arnett's theory, in industrialized societies the types of experiences that people have who are in their late teens to mid-20's have changed dramatically over the past 50 years. Instead of being quick to make that walk down the ...

Writer's Viewpoint: 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon'

Jimmy Fallon
We are now a few weeks into the Jimmy Fallon era of late night network programming -- his absence this week was allegedly a planned vacation, not a result from his argument/possible fight at a New York City pizza restaurant -- and, well, I have mixed feelings. Now, I've made it clear I've always kind of enjoyed Jimmy Fallon so I am certainly not one looking to see him fail. At the same time, though, there's something about his show, so far, that has annoyed me. I couldn't quite put my finger on it, though. I almost feel the show is trying to be "too cool": Hey, look, we have bloggers (I can...

These actors and artists don't have much in common besides looks. But who gets the shit-end of the stick? Check out our photo slideshow of celebrities that look alike and which one has an advantage over the other.

Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day)

Giovanni Ribisi

Before he started wearing guy-liner, Armstrong shared that dopey confused look with Ribisi. We suspected these two were the same person when we saw The Other Sister, but after hearing Ribisi's first line, we knew it was for real. They even sound the same!

Advantage: Ribisi because he's acting

Return of the 70's Singer-Songwriter

April 4th, 2008 2:01pm EDT
Sheryl Crow
Successful singer-songwriters have spanned across the decades, but no era saw them flourish like the 1970s. James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Dan Fogelberg, Carly Simon, Jackson Browne and Neil Young (to name a few) were tearing up the airwaves. Their simple, thought-provoking melodies struck a chord with a Vietnam War-torn America and left an indelible mark on the modern music biz. Well, tune your radios and adjust your mp3 players, folks. The 70s singer-songwriter sound is back - with a whole new batch of artists.
