Manually opening epub file on Mac problems

OK, I have an epub file that just seems messed up in conversion. I want to open it up and look at the html of the file. On Windows, I simply change the name to file.zip and then unzip and look/modify the html and rezip and rename the file. However, on Mac OS X, after renaming the file.zip and trying to unzip it using the finder (archive utility), the new file simply becomes "file.zip.cpgz" which doesn't get me a folder with the html. Any easy work arounds? Thanks.
