Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson are at a crossroads: one is experiencing a mid-life crisis; another, a late-life crisis; and the third, a far from ordinary "no-life crisis."
From David Frankel, the director of 'The Devil Wears Prada' and 'Marley & Me', comes a sophisticated comedy about three friendly rivals who, tired of being ruled by obligations and responsibilities, dedicate a year of their lives to following their dreams. Their big year takes them on a cross-country journey of wild and life-changing adventures.
Everyone is searching for something – and Stu Preissler (Steve Martin), Brad Harris (Jack Black) and Kenny Bostick (Owen Wilson) are determined to not only find their "something," but to be the very best at it. Like this intrepid, continent-trotting trio, most of us dream about being at the top – whether it be as the supreme athlete, the best-selling author, or maybe the award-winning artist. It can be anything, but ideally it's something you're passionate about.
For Stu, Brad and Kenny, that means being the world's greatest...birder.
In 'The Big Year', an extraordinary race becomes a transformative journey for wealthy industrialist Stu, computer code-writer Brad, and successful contractor Kenny, who race across the continent on a Big Year, a whirlwind competition to see who can spot the most species of birds in North America within one calendar year.
