Editors Note
Note Three fanatical bird-watchers (Steve Martin, Owen Wilson, Jack Black) spend an entire year competing to spot the highest number of species as El Nino sends an extraordinary variety of rare breeds flying up into the U.S., but they quickly discover that there are more important things than coming out on top of the competition. Director David Frankel (THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, MARLEY AND ME) teams with screenwriter Howard Franklin to adapt author Mark Obmascik's 1998 book of the same name.
Chicago Sun-Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "There is some great bird photography here." 10/12/2011
Los Angeles Times "If you're in the mood for some feathery fluff of the happy-sappy-and-not-wholly-unpleasant sort and need a break from snark, there is THE BIG YEAR." 10/14/2011
Box Office 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's original....In the hands of three such gifted farceurs as Steve Martin, Owen Wilson and Jack Black, it's pretty close to perfection." 10/12/2011
Entertainment Weekly "It's like CITY SLICKERS remade for the Discovery Channel....The film salutes the oddly touching idea that no obsession is very rational." -- Grade: B- 10/28/2011
Movieline "One of the most commendable things about THE BIG YEAR is its willingness to allow that your passions are your passions, and while the world may not comprehend them, that doesn't mean they have to be a source of unfair mockery." 10/13/2011
Sight and Sound "THE BIG YEAR has a strikingly impressive cast, perhaps attracted by a script that sort of gestures towards big themes..." 02/01/2012
