They say opposites attract, but could a romance possibly develop between a attorney, successful at work but unlucky in love, and a divorced man whose main interest is birdwatching?

The Great Outdoors ... not so great for everybody
20 February 2010 | by (the Bay Area) – See all my reviews

Lucie Arnaz and Swoosie Kurtz are best friends, both single (and probably destined to remain that way). Swoosie is hungry to get married (but with a poor self-esteem around men), and Lucie wishes to stay out of the dating world (except for first dates).

These 2 city girls are in for a culture shock; they go into the great outdoors to a bird-watching camp. Lucie is not used to hiking (or even walking more than 6 blocks), and she is (almost) totally devoid of wanting to bird watch.

Lucie is a one-person disaster area, and loves to scream whenever something befalls her (which is often). So, if you enjoy seeing a damsel in distress, BOY, are you in luck.

On the other hand, Swoosie actually relaxes, and learns to become more approachable by men.

There is some beautiful scenery, and it is well-cast (with some zany bird watchers). A bonus is a Pre-Anne of Green Gables Megan Follows.
