Regardless of how accurate Darren Aronofsky's Noah movie is to the Old Testament, he's gotten the basics right — ark, two of every animal, flood, etc. In this new clip, Noah explains to his kids why they're about to spend 40 days on a floating zoo. They react better than I would have.

Although Noah's little teaching moment begs the question: Are all the animals who aren't getting on the ark not innocent? Are they all assholes that deserve to drown along with the wicked humans? Or are they just casualties in God's attempt to shake his giant Etch-a-Sketch? What about all the babies and kittens? Why does God hate babies and kittens?
