The Big Year

I love birds and have 2 as pets and feed the birds in my yard year-round so that may be why I loved this film so much but I do think it will appeal to anyone.  It tells the story of 3 men played by Jack Black, Owen Wilson, and Steve Martin, who race to see who can find and count the most birds in one year-and have a "big year". The story also tells the personal story of the 3 men. Even though Owen Wilson's character wins the race it could be said that the other 2 men are the ultimate winners because of the events in their personal life and the life lessons learned from their experiences in the race. The story follows the race through North America, the scenery and the birds are beautiful! The book The Big Year: A Tale of Man Nature and Fowl Obsession by Mark Obmascik  is also available-598.07Obm. The DVD is based on this book. Check our catalog for the DVD
