I didn't know what to expect at first when I read that this was a mall/zoo combo and it surprised me with its unique story line. I give this screenplay 4 points out of 5 because of its entertainment value, its subtle message about seeing someone for who they are and its likeable characters. I especially like that the characters are all quite different. They are a strong part of the story. It flows well, the dialogue is realistic and conflict is resolved. I wasn't surprised that the bad guys didn't win and it is refreshing to see Marty save the day. Reviewed by Denise B., KIDS FIRST! Juror

It's a revolutionary concept. The Animall is a state-of-the-art shopping mall and zoo, brilliantly combined as one. With strong plexiglass barriers, shoppers wander about only inches away from some of the most ferocious predators of our time.-- But then, hiding out following a bout of mischief, a small group of kids finds itself trapped inside long after closing. All night they try on clothes, in-line skate, play paintball, and........tease the animals. Until sunrise, the mall would indeed be their oyster. Only, around midnight, a couple of inept thieves enter through a skylight and inadvertently short out the electrical system. Now the kids, as well as the crooks, are trapped until dawn. And the animals are on the loose.
