DVD Talk Review: The Big Year

DVD Talk:
Birding: it's a sport or hobby that treads the line between familiar and mysterious, requiring no introduction but not a subject that many will consider themselves an expert on. For Hollywood, that probably sounds like the perfect premise for a comedy, and thus, we have director David Frankel's adaptation of Mark Obmascik's nonfiction book The Big Year: A Tale of Man, Nature, and Fowl Obsession. Like nearly all non-fiction books, the tried-and-true semi-comic template grafted onto it for this fictional film isn't a perfect fit, but the result should agree with anyone not frightened off by the word "pleasant."

The story is too old to be commented.
