Amateurish but charming
29 May 2019 | by pscamp01See all my reviews

We're Going to the Zoo is a nearly plotless, and seemingly mostly improvised, short movie about a young woman and her little brother who are on a long road trip to a zoo. Along the way they pick up a hitchhiker who helps them pass the time. I'm assuming this was a student film because of the production values. The camera is shaky and the sound quality is poor with the dialogue being nearly inaudible at times. But the cast is engaging and the movie exudes a certain charm. There are certainly worse ways of spending 15 minutes of your life than by watching this film.
