Whimsical and touching.
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.
Has all the right elements but completely fails to gel together.
Rare Birds has more than enough charm to make it memorable.
Really quite funny.
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.
A quirky comedy set in Newfoundland that cleverly captures the dry wit that's so prevalent on The Rock.
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.
