Twentieth Century Fox brings us the comedic talents of Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson in the hilarious outdoor adventure, The Big Year, releasing on DVD and Blu-ray combo pack on January 31, 2012. This iconic comedic trio, along with their outrageous supporting cast including: Joel McHale, Jim Parsons, Angelica Huston, Dianne Wiest, Brian Dennehy, Rashida Jones, Kevin Pollak and Anthony Anderson bring us a must see for comedy lovers and bird watchers!
Here is the synopsis of The Big Year take from a copy of the back of the DVD case:
Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson form "a comic dream team" (Jeff Craig, Sixty Second Preview) in this smart, funny comedy for 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!
The Big Year Blu-ray brings you lots of special features including the theatrical and extended editions of the film, more than 40 minutes of deleted scenes and the featurette "The Big Migration."
We enjoyed The Big Year. I thought it was witting and funny without being raunchy. It had some great depth to the film that I wasn't really expecting (I hadn't read the book it was based on). Bird watchers will enjoy the film and it is a film about bird watching but with so much more!
We would definitely recommend taking the time to watch this film! I think you will enjoy The Big Year! We did!
