* EscapedAnimalRampage: Almost inevitable in a zoo-related movie. A bear escapes its enclosure and wanders around in the city until the keepers capture it and bring it back to the zoo. It relatively docile and doesn't do much of a rampage, though.

* MissingMom: The story begins after Katherine Mee's death. In real life, the zoo was actually bought before her death and she died during the renovations, the studio thought this was too sad and the real Benjamin Mee has said that the portrayal of grief is still accurate to what he went through.

* ContinuitySnarl: After seeing the zoo for the first time, Benjamin says that it is February. The calendar in the beginning looks like it could be the February 2011 calendar. House listings even have the date January 3, 2011, and a bank statement ends with the date November 2010. So it should be 2011, right? But then a sign says that [[spoiler: Spar, who dies by the end, died]] in 2010. A weather reporter even says that it is July 6, 2010. To make matters worse, the June and July calendars shown do not make sense unless it is 2007, the year in which the story on which this is based really took place.
