Early on in “Zookeeper,” Sony’s latest commercially craven piece of garbage from Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison production company, an animal sees two bears fighting. Her response is, “They look like two bean bag chairs!” Ignoring the idea that this character, a giraffe, has probably never even seen a bean bag chair, this is a brilliant line -- mostly because it reveals the true instincts of the six (six!) writers tasked with bringing this story-less hook to the screen.

You gotta hand it to director Sebastian Gutierrez ("Women In Trouble," "Elektra Luxx"). He knows that his cinematic oeuvre lies in shooting as many beautiful women in as many skimpy outfits as possible (particularly his longtime ladyfriend Carla Gugino) and he certainly knows how to work a Rolodex, enlisting a bevy stars to feature in his low-budget features that nobody watches.
