For those who prefer to watch guys get beaten and anally raped over families that buy zoos, this mashed-up trailer is for you. Some dear, dear soul took the trailer for the tepidly-received Cameron Crowe film We Bought a Zoo and mashed it up with The Shawshank Redemption.
Adding elements of The Shawshank Redemption to anything is like inviting T-Pain to sing a verse on your hip-hop album – it always makes the original work better. I didn’t see We Bought a Zoo because it was a Cameron Crowe film about a family that lost its mom and bought a damn zoo. I keep watching The Shawshank Redemption because it’s a film about life in prison that features Morgan Freeman.
