Movie Summary[]


A man who thinks he can talk to animals going slowly insane. That, or, per guest host Hallie Haglund–"he has to be a total fucking idiot."


Kindhearted Griffin Keyes is one of the best-loved caretakers at the Franklin Park Zoo, but since he is more comfortable with the animals than with females of his own species, his love life is lacking. When Griffin decides that the only way to get a girlfriend is to find a more-glamorous career, the animals panic. To keep him from leaving, they reveal their secret ability to talk and offer to teach him the rules of courtship, animal style.

Movie Pitches[]


  • ­So, finally we have a Flop House that's all writers for The Daily Show.
           —Elliott @04:05
  • ­Dan likes to state the lyrics of songs as if that's a joke. Now, I do it too, but when I do it, I don't get mad at myself. That's the main difference. 'Cause I'm a hypocrite.
