Kevin James stole Brendan Fraser’s career and made it fatter. Here’s the teaser for Zookeeper, Kevin James’ latest in which he gets love advice from talking zoo animals. I could say a lot about this film, but I think Scream, Fall Down, and Monkey Covers His Eyes pretty much covers it.

And yes, this script sparked a bidding war and eventually sold for $3 million dollars.  And you wonder why MGM is broke.

Here are some side-by-side comparisons of The Zookeeper with the Brendan Fraser classic, Furry Vengeance.

I wonder how Brendan Fraser feels about this…

Well that’s good.  He doesn’t seem to mind.
