    Lane Brown

    Lane Brown

  13. Zookeeper: Doomed by Too-Big Talking Animals?

    Lane Brown

    It seemed like a sure bet: put Paul Blart star Kevin James in a movie full of celebrity-voiced zoo animals, crank up the air conditioning, and let the money roll in. But in its first weekend, Zookeeper opened to a measly $21 million, barely meeting i...
