THE BIG YEAR (Theatrical Release USA 2011)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Big Year—Steve Martin, Jack Black, and Owen Wilson—sparks interest in birding and serves its fair share of comedy. The movie works on a lower-key entertainment level as it uses a straightforward, more linear approach to storytelling. It deserves its watch.
