News & Interviews for Hoot
Critic Reviews for Hoot
This sweet-natured but plodding adaptation of a young-adult novel by Carl Hiaasen could have used a little less broad satire of corporate greed and a few more, well, owls. The critters peep from their burrows for only a few brief moments.
It would be a nice little family film if not for the fact that the young heroes commit felonies in the name of saving the environment.
Promoting environmental conservation, this bland family film never generates much interest in either its human or animal participants.
A safe, slight film that doesn't possess the chaotic hilarity I associate with Carl Hiaasen's best writing.
The only highlight is a sequence of outstanding cinematography in Florida's Everglades. Oh, and there's one funny joke. But that doesn't make this film a hoot at all.

A great film for kids! Mildly recommendable for adults, but jut fine for teens that have nothing better to do! It has heart!
