Critic Reviews for Rare Birds
Rendered bland and frustrating by its endless attempts to make the odd odder.
The movie keeps coming back to the achingly unfunny Phonce and his several silly subplots.
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.
Even if you don't know a wren from a grackle, there are pleasures here.
Audience Reviews for Rare Birds
Cute little film set in a sleepy Newfoundland town that is set upon by outsiders all in searchof an elusive bird. Touching with good character interaction.
Shot in beautiful Newfoundland by Icelandic director Sturla Gunnarsson. Based on the novel by Canadian Edward Riche, who also wrote the screenplay. Stars Molly Parker, a wonderful Canadian actress.
