YMMV / We Bought a Zoo

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The scene where Buster the grizzly bear escapes from his exhibit.
  • Designated Villain: Walt Ferris, the inspector. The most 'evil' thing he does is give as surprise, unofficial inspection a few weeks early... allowing the family to fix the problems he points out, so they can pass the REAL inspection.
  • Expy: Dylan and Lily are expies of Jess and Leslie from Bridge to Terebithia.
