  • With ambitions greater than comedy and results that fall short of character study, The Big Year is neither fish nor fowl. show more

  • The uniformly winning cast, led by Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson, and the ultra-accessible touch provided by director David Frankel provide for a constant steam of gentle mirth, if not huge laughs. show more

  • Genial and mild, The Big Year doesn't give in to the temptation to juice up its story with outsized caricatures or inflated dramas. show more

    I actually bought the DVD with low expectations and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Not what I would term a great movie, but, I was entertained for a couple hours, and isn\'t that movies are supposed to do?
