I thought the movie looked like fun, then I learned it was based on a book of the same name. The movie didn't get good reviews, but the book did. I am so glad I got it--it was really fun and interesting about birders. There was actually some suspense about which of these three extraordinary individuals would win the Big Year! I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys a pleasant read.
