The animals at the Franklin Park Zoo love their kind-hearted caretaker, Griffin Keyes (Kevin James). Finding himself more comfortable with a lion than with a lady, Griffin decides that the only way to get a girl in his life is to leave the zoo and find a more glamorous job.

To keep Griffin from leaving, they decide to teach him the rules of courtship — animal style.

What the critics thought:

- Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
