“We Bought A Zoo” – A Charming & Inspirational Story

Last night, my wife and I went on a classic dinner and date night. After chowing down on tasty Mexican food at Chipotle, we ventured to Regal Cinemas to watch “We Bought a Zoo” (see trailer at the bottom of this post).

The upcoming blockbuster movie “No Strings Attached” starring Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher, and Kevin Kline is based on the following plot: “A guy and girl try to keep their relationship strictly physical, but it’s not long before they learn that they want something more.”

Here are 3 other marketing slogans associated with “No Strings Attached”

  • Can two friends hook up without love getting in the way?
  • Welcome to the new world of relationships.
  • Can sex friends stay best friends?

Pardon my “Christian high horse”… but doesn’t this just break your heart? God had such an intentional and perfect design for sex…
