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.

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.
Disclosure: I received this movie for free for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.
