Movies like "Zookeeper" make you hate movies, restaurants, animals, and Earth.

Kevin James' new comedy Zookeeper may be popular with the kiddos, but slapstick humor and a cookie-cutter storyline doom it for adults.

Give Kevin James this much credit -- the dude leaves it all on the field, even when the movie's bad.

A high concept-movie falls almost as flat as star Kevin James doing pratfalls.

Doesn't belabor its punch lines and it maximizes James' likeability to a mostly winning result.

The latest in an increasingly long line of misbegotten Kevin James comedies...

Sometimes a kid's movie is just a kid's movie. In the case of Zookeeper, it's a place where young imaginations go to die.

From the unstoppable Adam Sandler hit factory comes this pleasant, kid-friendly, ultra-formulaic shlub-does-good comedy.

Fans of the sight of James falling over will get a big kick out of Zookeeper, but this deranged comedy will leave everyone else scratching their heads.

It isn't terrible, it's just dull.

Why is Kevin James a top-billed movie star? When did this happen? Why is it happening?

Kevin James talks to the animals in Adam Sandler-scented rom-com.

Just who will be amused by James mugging and hugging his way into the heart of a good woman (Rosario Dawson? In your dreams, Kevin!) is a question that simply cannot be answered.

With the exception of some nice moments, mainly due to Kevin James' wholesome and lovable lead, Zookeeper is a flop and should be watched at your own peril.

To produce something as emphatically unfunny as this, the script's five-man team must have whipped themselves into a state of mutual delusion.

Failing to succeed as a rom-com or a kids' flick, this feels surprisingly flat with the animals, and Kevin James, never really coming alive.

When you hear the giraffe yelling May Day, right at the beginning of Zookeeper, take heed; it's a distress signal that we are about to witness a disaster

Though silly and disposable, the film's heart and physical comedy make it relatively satisfying.

Zookeeper is a charming and lovably imperfect film.
