3 stars out of 4 -- "There is some great bird photography here." - 10/12/2011 Chicago Sun-Times


"If you're in the mood for some feathery fluff of the happy-sappy-and-not-wholly-unpleasant sort and need a break from snark, there is THE BIG YEAR." - 10/14/2011 Los Angeles Times


3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's original....In the hands of three such gifted farceurs as Steve Martin, Owen Wilson and Jack Black, it's pretty close to perfection." - 10/12/2011 Box Office


"It's like CITY SLICKERS remade for the Discovery Channel....The film salutes the oddly touching idea that no obsession is very rational." -- Grade: B- - 10/28/2011 Entertainment Weekly


"One of the most commendable things about THE BIG YEAR is its willingness to allow that your passions are your passions, and while the world may not comprehend them, that doesn't mean they have to be a source of unfair mockery." - 10/13/2011 Movieline


"THE BIG YEAR has a strikingly impressive cast, perhaps attracted by a script that sort of gestures towards big themes..." - 02/01/2012 Sight and Sound
