"The Big Year" Review Round-up

In anticipation of actually seeing it myself, The Big Year movie has been getting a lot of attention, mostly positive.  Here is a sampling of reviews:

Jeff Gordon, pres of the ABA, gives the film a thumbs up and argues that it is a reason for celebration, and that the birding community should embrace it "as our own" and dance with our Swaros on.

Dave Irons reviews it on BirdFellow.

Kim Kaufman sees that it promotes a generally positive image of birders.

BirdChick thought it was a "pleasant surprise."

Robert Mortenson on Birding is Fun really enjoyed it.

Corey at 10,000 Birds found it lacking.

And of course, A.O. Scott reviewed it in the Times.

I'll try and see it soon, if it lasts in the theaters!
