DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - While starring three big funnymen in Steve Martin, Jack Black, and Owen Wilson, this birdwatching-themed comedy is more sweet than hilarious. Language is at a minimum, making it safe family viewing. Of the three, Black is the focus of the film.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good 'The Big Year' is getting the enthusiastic support of the Audubon Society, and has an innocence and charm that will make it appealing for families, especially those who have had enough whales and dolphins for the year.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average It's not necessary to know the difference between a pin-tailed snipe and a blue-footed booby to enjoy the bird-watching antics in The Big Year.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Average 'The Big Year' has heart and sweetness to spare - but as any birder will tell you, focus and energy count, too.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 72 moviegoers:
TEENS:Seven of the eight teens enjoyed "The Big Year" very much. Half indicated that they loved it. Only one rated it as low as good/average.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The male and female reviews are nearly identical. About a third loved it and another third enjoyed it very much. The final third rated it average, which is a bit disappointing considering the actors in this movie.
ADULTS:These are good reviews, but not great reviews. The male and female reviews are very similar and show that about half enjoyed this movie very much with many loving it. Unfortunately, there is a very high percentage of good/average reviews, which aren't bad, but they indicate a mediocre movie that you aren't likely to find memorable.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Everyone is searching for something – and Stu Preissler (Steve Martin), Brad Harris (Jack Black) and Kenny Bostick (Owen Wilson) are determined to not only find their "something,” but to be the very best at it. Like this intrepid, continent-trotting trio, most of us dream about being at the top – whether it be as the supreme athlete, the best-selling author, or maybe the award-winning artist. It can be anything, but ideally it's something you're passionate about.

For Stu, Brad and Kenny, that means being the world's greatest….birder.
