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
Great movie.....i dont know anyone who would actually waste their time with such a project...but
Thought it was hilarious,especially if you\'re a birder, you\'ll appreciate it!
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?
