"We Bought a Zoo’’ is a sweet-natured, terribly unthreatening drama about redemption and renewal, and it may matter more to the man who made it than the audiences who see it. Director Cameron Crowe has been in a career slump since 2001’s baroque “Vanilla Sky,’’ and he hasn’t made a movie since the tepid romantic comedy “Elizabethtown’’ in 2005. “Zoo’’ has the feeling of a man struggling to get back on a horse, and if the movie’s a far cry from Crowe’s best work - “Say Anything,’’ “Jerry Maguire,’’ “Almost Famous’’ - at least he’s on the horse. It’d be nice if the horse left the barn, but you can’t have everything.
