Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson form a comic dream team in this smart, funny comedy from the director of The Devil Wears Prada and Marley & Me. Looking to shake up their routine lives, three amateur bird watchers compete to become the ultimate “birder” by spotting the greatest number of species within a single calendar year. But the friendly rivalry soon turns into a hilariously complicated cross-country adventure as each man begins to realize that the quest for success comes at a price — and that’s not chicken feed!



  • Very Good Drama Comedy

    This movie ultimately reflects on what's really important friendships family pursuing a dream! Fun movie to watch!
  • Cute, Fluffy Movie

    Sometimes you just want a nice, light movie to pass the time. This made me chuckle at times, but it was mainly about paying attention and appreciating our loved ones. I liked it for the lightheartedness. This is not an Oscar winner. It's nice to see the three main leads play against type.
  • Offbeat, and that's OK

    By Sgt.pepper1986
    As a birder and a longtime fan of these three actors, this movie quickly became one of my favorites. The adjectives I would use to describe this film; offbeat, amusing, cute, clever, and relatable. Is the acting perfect? No (but it is pretty delightful and includes good supporting role characters played by Brian Dennehey and Rashida Jones.). Is all the bird related material cutting-edge and Sir David Attenborough worthy? Not quite. But that's not what this movie is. It's a story of three different dudes and each of their individual lives that converge due to a common love; birds and birding. Some people love this movie for all those reasons and some don't, but haters gonna hate, I suppose. Not me, though, because I'm a big fan and give it a two thumbs up!
  • Laughed a lot

    This is a hilarious film. It is sophisticated enough to not insult your intelligence yet amusing enough to keep you laughing through the entire movie. Watched it with our teenagers and we all loved it.
  • This is a story worth seeing and a world worth knowing!

    I’m normally not one to write a review, but I felt this movie had some injustices. A lot of negative reviews shredded it apart mostly because it has an all star comedic cast. If you can get over the fact that this movie is not some hilarious comedy, and you can appreciate the story and the insight into a giant hobby that many people adore, you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.

    Even though this is rated comedy, do you dumb people actually think that a movie about birds will make you laugh until you die, even if its from great actors. I loved the movie
  • Meant to be heartfelt not hilarious

    By WhyteWolfe
    All of these actors have already shown that they can handle both slap stick raucous comedy and the more softhearted fare. This film is the latter. It goes for the heart instead of the funny bone. If you are prepared for that, you will not be disappointed.

    This movie rocks! The only way you wont like it is if you have no sense of humor. This movie made me like birds- didnt care about them before. Dont listen to the trolls. Its an awesome film!
