Whimsical and touching.

Rendered bland and frustrating by its endless attempts to make the odd odder.

Even if you don't know a wren from a grackle, there are pleasures here.

Has all the right elements but completely fails to gel together.

The movie keeps coming back to the achingly unfunny Phonce and his several silly subplots.

Rare Birds has more than enough charm to make it memorable.

Apollo Guide

Its almost too-spectacular coastal setting distracts slightly from an eccentric and good-naturedly aimless story.

Rare Birds ain't perfect ... but the wild performance by Jones constantly turns the movie upon its head.

With Rare Birds, as with The Shipping News before it, an attempt is made to transplant a Hollywood star into Newfoundland's wild soil -- and The Rock once again resists the intrusion.

Jam! Movies

A quirky comedy set in Newfoundland that cleverly captures the dry wit that's so prevalent on The Rock.
