funny + birds submitted by manz on February 15, 2012, 12:59pm A comedic tour-de-force, I enjoyed this film. It stars many comic legends in an unlikely scenario in which they are racing around the country to view the most birds in one year to win a contest known as "The BigYear." It's a delighful look at friendship and what is important in life, and attempts to show how one can balance a passionate hobby along with a loving family life.

Funny submitted by alumeng.ajl on August 2, 2012, 6:36pm The Big Year is a great movie! It's really funny and the acting's great!

Read the book! submitted by slugwhisperer on July 12, 2013, 8:07pm The movie was entertaining. The real story is absolutely incredible.

Great movie for date night submitted by Kikumatsu97 on July 26, 2015, 2:23pm It's funny and relateable if you have a partner whose not so relateable hobby often gets in the way of the relationship. Not as boring as bird watching might infer , but not sensationally entertaining.

Not very funny, but interesting submitted by pej08 on August 5, 2015, 8:12am Despite the all-star cast known for comedy, this movie was not the laugh-out-loud experience I expected when I rented the movie. What I got instead was a glimpse into the life and passion of a very interesting group of people (birders, or bird watchers) and saw how this hobby affected the lives of three very different men. This movie isn't very funny, but it's interesting and charming. So don't watch it if you want to watch, but give it a try if you're willing to meet some interesting people and see what lessons they learn as they scramble to see as many different kinds of birds as they can.

What a warm movie submitted by chun chi yang on November 18, 2015, 1:47pm It's suitable for family watching.

fun movie submitted by ravsara on July 23, 2017, 12:21pm Our whole family enjoyed this movie. We loved the stories of the birders and the wonderful footage of birds in the wild.
