The Big Year

Everyone is searching for something


The Big Year
Set in the world of birding, we follow three very different birders over the course of a year, as they try to outdo each other by spotting the most birds. The comedy is gentler and devoid of potty humour, unlike most other recent offerings in this genre. The film appears to have had a short US run before heading to disk.

100 minutes.
Parental Guidance (Language).
Comedy.

ScreenIt
T. Durgin quote iconThe Big Year is a small movie with small charms. But for those tired of the rampant big-screen potty humor, you could do worse.
