Movie Reviews

Boxoffice Magazine - 9/10 by Pete Hammond One of the smartest and funniest films this year..
Cleveland Plain Dealer - 9/10 by Clint O'Connor Yes, the characters are razor-thin and the dialogue wooden, but there's some light comic fun to be had with the batty birders.
E! Online - 9/10 by Matt Stevens Considering the high-flying talent attached, The Big Year is a big letdown. - 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.
AV Club - 9/10 by Keith Phipps Owen Wilson and Jack Black appear on the verge of succumbing to the same terminal blandness that's gripped Martin for so long.
New York Times - 9/10 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.
Variety - 8/10 by Brian Lowry A genial if slow-moving, almost sleepy comedy.
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.
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. - 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.
Metro Times (Detroit, MI) - 8/10 by Jeff Meyers If The Big Year does anything, it highlights how far Martin, Black, and Wilson have fallen from the giddy, off-kilter humor they used to bring to projects.
Philadelphia Daily News - 8/10 by Gary Thompson Another watered-down mainstream comedy with a self-improvement message and standard relationship dramas.
