By far the North American Comedy film of the year in 2014!
3 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Excellent comedy. Provides a nice feel good story about relationships, set in a Birding world.

It is funny, witty and at times a tear jerker. Highly recommended for all audiences.

Comedy of the year in 2014. Has done well at all festivals.

Excellent camera work showing nature (Ojibway Park in Windsor, ON).

A truly good Hollywood type production at a budget 50 times less.

A great cast both in performance and who they are as people. Rarely do I want to see a film twice, this one is worth watching 3 times to pick up all the witty story telling that happens in the film. Definetively a MUST SEE!
