It's a slim premise: Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson are three
The thing is, Martin, Black and Wilson are three very funny guys in a not very funny movie. Maybe they were supposed to be playing it straight, in which case Black's slapstick pratfalls were entirely out of place. I don't know - it just didn't do much for me. I did enjoy the various locations that were filmed but jeesh, we didn't even see that many birds. The Big Year will never be one of those movies I end up watching just because I came across it on cable whilst flipping channels.
