A lesson in why you shouldn't let expectations color perception.

"The Big Year" is a subtle gem of a film. More importantly though, it's a lesson in why one should never let expectations color perception. If I told you there was a film with Steve Martin, Jack Black, John Cleese, and Owen Wilson, odds are good that you'd expect a film which afforded you an abundance of laughs. While "The Big Year" does have its humorous moments, and abundance of the film is quite morose. Each character is written with a sense of desperation, an almost oppressive level of depression, and an air of unavoidable failure. Those moments of laughter then resonate as genuine, as if humor is employed as a defense mechanism. However, if we set aside our expectations, what remains is a well-crafted film with a lot of heart. One in which every viewer can recognize a little of themselves somewhere. I highly recommend this film, to anyone who view it with an objective eye.

Stunning beautiful movie with a great premise

I love this movie. And I believe that it is highly underrated. The actors are great, the story is very sweet. The entire premise of the movie is very entertaining. It's also very funny at times. But in general I don't think that this movie is a comedy. I didn't laugh many times. But I sure did smile all the time while I saw it. I think I have seen this movie 4-5 times, and I enjoy it every time. I strongly believe that everyone should watch this movie, don't go in with any expectations. Just enjoy it.

The scenery and nature shots in the movie are so stunning, I couldn't believe what I was seeing.

This movie is a MUST WATCH!

Check it out guys.

You won't regret it.

Nowhere near as funny as it should have been.

It is as if the director brought Martin, Cleese, Black, and Wilson into a room and said "look, everyone knows you're funny, but for this movie you're not going to be." Seriously, with that all-star cast, they had to have tried to make this move as unfunny as it was. Sure, it was mildly amusing, likable, well made, well paced, not boring, and I don't regret watching it, hence the 5 out of 10 stars. But I was expecting this movie to be like Best In Show, a satire piece lampooning an absurd, dorky activity. Instead it was a straight-up feel-good piece trying to make us sympathize with these ridiculous people. Also I don't like having my intelligence insulted. There is no way a Rashida Jones falls for a Jack Black, unless he is a millionaire. And there is no way Wilson's character gets a pass from his wife after shirking his duty as husband so grossly. Overall I was insulted that the writers expected me to take the outrageous notion of a Big Year seriously, and to sympathize with these nerds. Disclaimer, I am not a birder, so I probably missed some inside jokes. Sure, birding is a healthy hobby. Going on a Big Year is not. I could respect this pursuit if they actually photographed the birds artfully, or at least for proof, but they do neither. Utter nonsense.
