Editors Note
Note Jimmy Buffet makes his debut as a producer in this ecologically minded family film, based on the best-selling novel by Carl Hiaasen. New kid Roy Eberhardt (Logan Lerman) is not faring well at his new school in Coconut Grove, Florida. His family recently relocated from his beloved Montana, and immediately Roy has found himself on the bad side of school bullies Dana (Eric Phillips) and Beatrice "The Bear" (Brie Larson). But when he catches sight of a blonde wild boy running barefoot through the streets, Roy is drawn into some strange and unique events in his new home.^There have been odd occurrences on the plot of land soon to be occupied by Mother Paula's Pancake House. Someone is perpetrating just enough vandalism to interfere with the restaurant's groundbreaking, while driving the foreman, Mr Muckle (Clark Gregg in a hilarious turn), crazy. After eventually winning Beatrice's friendship, Roy meets the culprit: her stepbrother, Mullet Fingers (Cody Linley), who has taken it upon himself to stop the construction and save the rare burrowing owls that live on the premises. But as the three ecological vigilantes resort to ever more drastic measures to save the owls, Roy realizes their only hope lies in bringing the issue to the public's attention. Charming, fun, and carrying an important message, HOOT overcomes its more incredible aspects through an irresistible good humor that audiences can't help but be swept along by. Luke Wilson (BOTTLE ROCKET) steals the show as a bumbling man-child who somehow managed to become a police officer, while Buffet himself appears as a kindly, surf-bum marine biology teacher.
