Not the movie but ACD

A movie with one or two laughs in its entirety even with some of the biggest names in comedy cinema, the Big Year doesn't come close to its potential and is therefore a failure. A movie about bird watching will never be interesting unless there is something else to it.

Although it won't win awards or end up on anyone's "Best Films" list, The Big Year is a 2000's style comedy with a surprising amount of heart and humour, considering it's genre and time period. It has a certain earnest drive that other films of the like lack, which is why I enjoy watching it whenever it's on TV or Netflix. A guilty pleasure for some, blase for others, this film is the equivalent of a child's drawing. It's not that good, but it has certain elements which are enjoyable and you get a funny warm feeling when looking at it.

Although loaded with talent, top heavy with it in fact, this effort is so lackluster as to very nearly offend you with the waste perpetrated before your eyes. How lackluster? Jack Black comes across as a nice guy! (Say what?!?) Yep. If the police asked you to identify this film out of a line-up you will not be able to do it because you won't remember what it looked like.

I can't understand the other reviews.. I ended up buying this one on Bluray after renting it. This movie shares something that birdwatchers are passionate about - and it takes you around the beautiful US. It's a very optimistic movie where 'enemies' can still be human to each other. It's one of my top 5 favorite movies.

The film benefits from the wondrous sights the cinematography offers while the leads demonstrates the importance in life. (B)

Likable comedy with the lead trio each having their moments.
December 22, 2015
49/100 - The Big Year is a comedy that doesn't make me laugh enough. The chemistry between the three leads is solid, but on the whole this is a film that relies too much on emotional sentiment and not enough on making the audience have a good time. It's not a complete waste of time, though, as there are some funny and ironic situations that the three birders have to work their way out of. However, besides those few scenes, The Big Year generally falls flat.

Any movie with Owen Wilson is good.

It's not really funny, And it's mostly boring....But a good enough plot with good casting makes for an exceptional 3 stars.

De buena factura y con buenas intenciones, entretiene.

Full disclosure, I am a birder. I enjoyed it and would give it a passing grade.

A very interesting and comedy movie on birding. Loved the multiple aspects on life stories of three main characters of the movie. And its a light hearted modified, adaptation of a true story.
