The Big Year – MMU 87

It’s the start of 2021 and in this week’s episode, Val, Jake, and Tracy kick off Jack Black January with the hidden gem The Big Year. Released in 2011, the film stars Steve Martin, Jack Black, and Owen Wilson as three men who attempt to view the most birds over the course of a year across North America.

This gentle comedy is based on a true story of three birders who accept the challenge to travel across the country to witness as many species of birds as possible, and do so on the honor system. You don’t need proof, and there is no cash prize. Will the movie inspire a new bird tattoo for Val?
