Drab British family comedy
13 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

I knew what to expect from Zoo Baby the moment I saw and heard the opening credits.

An animal-obsessed child, Pip, moves from his home in Nairobi to London to live with his aunt Julia, in order that he can attend Grammar School. Unaccustomed to the British niceties he encounters, Pip is more attracted to the Zoo and the Circus in his neighborhood. One day, playing truant from school, he journeys to the Zoo on his own to see a a rare animal that has just been moved there. Pip kidnaps the animal.

This movie was surprisingly short and just as well, because ZOO BABY was quite boring.
