The Big Year tells the story of three men who spend a year traveling the world in an effort to spot as many different species of birds as humanly possible.
Somehow the birds got left out of the trailer:
I read this script a long time ago, and while the characters are all perfectly likable, the story is exactly as bland as it appears. I found myself struggling to care about guys who spend piles of money to spot birds. It's not as if they're trying to study or discover rare birds, thus contributing to a scientific community. Hell, according to the rules they establish, they don't have to photograph the birds or even SEE them, as simply hearing a bird's call is considered sufficient. They're just checking birds off a list, so even if one of them wins all they can say at the end is, "LOOK AT ALL THE BIRDS I WAS NEAR! AREN'T YOU IMPRESSED WITH ME?"
No. No I'm not.
