Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average 'Hoot' has its heart in the right place, but I have been unable to locate its brain.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average The story may be simplistic and the kids' efforts cartoonishly easy, but the spotlight on corporate greed and its effects on defenseless animals inspires thought about ecological balance and preservation of endangered species.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Middle schooler Roy Eberhardt is the perpetual new kid on the block. Due to his father's job, Roy's moved so many times he's lost track of how many schools he's attended (six since kindergarten) and how many towns he's lived in (that would be ten) in his fourteen years of life. You could say he's perpetually a stranger in a strange land.

This time, he's left the big sky country of Montana for the tropical sun belt of Florida and a sleepy Gulf Coast hamlet named Coconut Cove. 

On his first day at Trace Middle School, Roy's about to meet the biggest bully of them all –Dana Matherson, a hulking monster with a girl's name who greets his new schoolmate by painfully sinking his fingers into Roy's temples and smashing his face against the school bus window. He notices a barefoot running boy outpacing the bus in the stifling heat and humidity.

And, if Roy had not spotted the curious, mysterious running boy, he would not have met Beatrice Leep, the running boy's scrappy stepsister and fellow 8th grader who just happens to be the toughest kid at school. Someone who strikes fear in the heart of every boy at Trace, even the bully Dana.

And, if Roy had not met Beatrice Leep, he would not have heard about the new restaurant planned for Coconut Cove. Had he not known about the new eatery about to break ground under the watchful eye of the company's overambitious P.R. executive, he would not have unearthed a disturbing threat to a local population of endangered owls, whose burrows happen to be right on the construction site where the malicious Muckle and his foreman are racing against the clock to erect their new franchise.
