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!

Nothing above average here, but it's cute enough to merit a watch. It definitely made me more interesting in birding!

Jack Black and Steve Martin make a good pair. It's nice to see Black in a toned down movie, because he can get a little too crazy in some films. Can't say the same for Owen Wilson who plays the same man child he always plays. Overall a decent film.

I'm no birdwatcher except for the humming birds and Rose Breasted Grouse Beaks that I see in the summer at my feeders. I enjoyed this movie more than I thought I would. I could not imagine all the things that birdwatcher will go through to find the birds.

Never heard of this movie until I recently went on my first bird walk and was informed about it by other participants. Quirky engaging movie. Bogged down slightly near the end, but overall very enjoyable.

Not as funny as I had hoped considering the cast, but enjoyable nonetheless. Beautiful scenery and a simple story make this movie a must-see for all bird lovers.

A bit slow at times, but glad I stayed with it til the end. Lots of great nature photography as the birders travel the world.

And I am enjoying actor Owen Wilson more and more.

A fun bit of fluff with nice visuals and pleasant music.

Semi-slow pace. Good for all ages. Has some humour. Not hiliarious. Semi-strong story. Not the best movie or the worst movie I have watched.

Enjoyable but "nothing to write home about" movie about competitive birding. Martin and Black subdue their outrageousness, Owen Wilson is the "sorta" bad guy.
