Review & Comments

Leave your thoughts about The Big Year.

Movie Reviews - 9/10 by Brian Orndorf I'd write that The Big Year is for the birds, but it's quite enjoyable at times -- a bright and colorful escapade across America (or likely Canada) with three affable comedians scrambling to make tepid material their own.
EmanuelLevy.Com - 9/10 by Emanuel Levy The film has some charm, but the potential comic explosiveness of bringing together such major talents as Steve Martin, Jack Black, and Owen Wilson remains unfulfilled.
Philadelphia Daily News - 9/10 by Gary Thompson Another watered-down mainstream comedy with a self-improvement message and standard relationship dramas.
Denver Post - 9/10 by Lisa Kennedy The Big Year has charms: Not a jawdropping flock of them, but a number of sweet insights and warm laughs just the same.
E! Online - 9/10 by Matt Stevens Considering the high-flying talent attached, The Big Year is a big letdown.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger Ebert The Big Year is getting the enthusiastic support of the Audubon Society, and has an innocence and charm that will make it appealing for families, especially those who have had enough whales and dolphins for the year.
New York Times - 8/10 by A.O. Scott Like birding itself, "The Big Year" rewards patience. It respects both the integrity and the eccentricity of the avian obsession, and it communicates something of the fascinating abundance and weirdness of the animals themselves.
Orlando Sentinel - 8/10 by Roger Moore Frankel is blessed with this cast and a subject that seems ripe for mockery, or at least gentle lampooning. But he never lands big laughs, just grins and giggles.
Variety - 8/10 by Brian Lowry A genial if slow-moving, almost sleepy comedy.
Film Journal International - 8/10 by Harry Haun A buddy movie meets a birdy movie, and three guesses who wins that one!
Seattle Times - 8/10 by Moira MacDonald "The Big Year" is that rarity: a genuinely sweet film, about nice people happily engaged in the pursuit of something they love. - 8/10 by Sara Michelle Fetters The movie roams through its numerous picturesque locations with a pleasant enough grace, while Frankel adds just enough idiosyncratic musical and visual quirks to keep things interesting.
