Three men are forced to see their life through their obsession with birds and make some pretty life changing decisions.
Steve Martin has late life crisis
Jack Black no life at all
Owen Wilson a midlife crisis
Director David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada and Marley & Me), comes a sophisticated comedy about three friendly rivals who, pitch the suitcases, the suit, the big house, the job etc aside and take a “Big Year”. Soon all three men learn that their new found freedom comes at a cost and some pay it others will not. — (C) 20th Century Fox
Well, there is very little to say about this movie that has not already been said. The movie was one of those “what does it profit a man to gain the world but lose his soul”? In this story three men are obsessed with birds, to the degree that they are neglecting everything else in their life and they finally realize that why keep looking for the next big thing when you may have big thing happening right in front of you.
This movie performed lackluster at the box office but as a whole its not a bad film. Its a little slow an a far cry from some of the other raunchy films done by both Owen Wilson and Jack Black.
This is not all that of a great movie but it is a great film to burn through a Friday afternoon. It has a great moral and the comedy is o.k- at best. It has limited language and no sex scenes with the given exception that there are a few sexual situations but limited nudity. However, the kids may find this film both boring and a little tedious so I would refer it to a much older audience.
Total Run Time: 1 hr. 40 min.
