The Big Year Movie Review

Just released to Blu-ray and DVD today, January 31st, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment brings us The Big Year, starring Jack Black, Steve Martin and Owen Wilson!  I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this great movie to review!  I am a huge fan of all three of these comedy stars and was excited to watch this movie.  My husband and I watched it together one night after putting the kids to bed.  This movie is about three men who love birding - I thought it was called bird watching, but apparently this is a sport.  All three men are attempting a "Big Year" in which they compete to see the most birds in one year.  Owen Wilson's character is the current record holder for a "Big Year" and all three are trying to break his record.  The characters that play Jack Black and Steve Martin team up for some comedic results!  This movie is very heartwarming and has it's funny moments too!  My husband and I both liked it very much!


Let the fowl play begin!  Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment presents the story of a competitive trio who quickly turn a simple quest into the ultimate competition when THE BIG YEAR spreads its wings on Blu-ray and DVD January 31.

Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson portray three men from very different walks of life, facing a mid-life crisis, a work-life crisis and a no-life crisis.  In the biggest competition of their lives, they undertake an unforgettable trek through North America, engaging in hilarious and bizarre adventures and forming friendships that will last a lifetime!

Directed by David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada, Marley & Me) and featuring outrageous supporting performances from Joel McHale (“Community”), Jim Parsons (“The Big Bang Theory”), Angelica Huston (50/50), Dianne Wiest (“In Treatment”),Brian Dennehy (The Next Three Days), Rashida Jones (“Parks and Recreation”), Kevin Pollak (Red State) and Anthony Anderson (Scream 4), THE BIG YEAR Blu-ray is loaded with special features including the theatrical and extended editions of the film, over 40 minutes of deleted scenes and the featurette “The Big Migration.”
