First Teaser Trailer for Zookeeper

The Zookeeper is a 2011 comedy film featuring talking animals (again) starring that always "lovable" guy, Kevin James with Adam Sandler, Sylvester Stallone, Judd Apatow, Jon Favreau, and Cher lending their voices to his unlikely set of animal friends. I have a good idea what your initial reaction might be but I will save my opinion at the end of the post.

Zookeeper Synopsis

The animals at the zoo adore their overweight caretaker Griffin Kayes (Kevin James), an amiable but lonely guy who's never quite fit in. Finding himself more comfortable with a lion than a lady, Griffin decides he should leave the zoo and get a life.

When the zoo animals discover his plan, they decide to break their code of silence and reveal their biggest secret: they can talk! Now they won't shut up and they're teaching Griffin nature's best mating rituals. To help him win the girl of his dreams (Rosario Dawson) and save their happy family, they're willing to do — or say — anything.

Sylvester Stallone as a lion

The trailer reminded me of Night at the Museum and the premise that of Hitch. Knowing the premise alone will give you a good idea of how it might end, but could the journey towards that conclusion be an enjoyable one?
