Synopsis

Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson form "a comic dream team" (Jeff Craig, Sixty Second Preview) in this smart, funny comedy from the director of The Devil Wears Prada and Marley & Me. Looking to shake up their routine lives, three amateur bird watchers compete to become the ultimate "birder" by spotting the greatest number of species within a single calendar year. But the friendly rivalry soon turns into a hilariously complicated cross-country adventure as each man begins to realize that the quest for success comes at a price — and that's not chicken feed!

Reviews

Laremy Legel Film.com | October 17, 2011

A very mild movie, but in the nicest sense of the word.

Lisa Kennedy Denver Post | October 14, 2011

The Big Year has charms: Not a jawdropping flock of them, but a number of sweet insights and warm laughs just the same.

Amy Biancolli Houston Chronicle | October 14, 2011

Its charms are as small as its singing feathered friends, but they're real enough, and gentle enough, to lift it and give it flight.

Joe Neumaier New York Daily News | October 14, 2011

A genial comedy with more power under its wings than it seems. This one could have flown over the cuckoo's nest, or smacked into a glass pane, but instead lands in the middle of the road where quirky and popular meet.

Claudia Puig USA Today | October 13, 2011

This gently charming comedy about a trio of birders is based on a winning premise, likable performances and stunning natural vistas.

Betsy Sharkey Los Angeles Times | October 13, 2011

There is some harmless pleasure to be found when feathers aren't ruffled, when the fowl is not foul.

A.O. Scott New York Times | October 13, 2011

Like birding itself, "The Big Year" rewards patience. It respects both the integrity and the eccentricity of the avian obsession, and it communicates something of the fascinating abundance and weirdness of the animals themselves.
