Review: The Big Year


Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson are at a crossroads -- one is experiencing a mid-life crisis, another a late-life crisis, and the third, a far from ordinary no-life crisis. From David Frankel, the director of The Devil Wears Prada and Marley & Me, comes a sophisticated comedy about three friendly rivals who, tired of being ruled by obligations and responsibilities, dedicate a year of their lives to following their dreams. Their big year takes them on a cross-country journey of wild and life-changing adventures.


The hubby and I watched The Big Year last night.  With a cast that includes Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson, who can resist?  It was a decent movie and definitely worth seeing at least once.  The acting was great and the plot was well thought out.  It wasn't quite as funny as I was hoping for but there were some moments that I couldn't help but chuckle.

  1. I liked this movie way more than I thought I would, mostly because I didnt know a thing about birds or birding. I still don't, but I feel like I do after watching it.
