The Big Year (MR)

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

Watched the comedy film, The Big Year, staring Steve Martin, Jack Black, and Owen Wilson, and was reasonably pleased.  With excellent minor roles from Anjelica Huston and Brian Dennehy, the cast come together to craft a heart warming tale of love and friendship, in the world of birding.  A bit kinder to the subject than some mockumentaries, the focus is on purely realistic situations, with comedy coming more from the personalities involved, than any wacky hijinks.
