GREAT movie
5 May 2006 | by catmino1982See all my reviews

This movie was great. I saw it on the first day it came out, and I was thrilled! I shook with laughter at some of the jokes like "Ling Ho" and the too-small police car. Cody Linley, Logan Lerman, and Brie Larson played their roles perfectly: Cody as the nameless rebel, Logan as the new kid turned hero, and Brie as the caring girl with a tough exterior. The plot is simple and easy to follow: Roy Eberhart moves to the small town of Coconut Cove, Florida. After a rocky start, he meets a tall blonde girl who slowly comes to trust him, and her stepbrother, the "barefoot kid" she calls Mullet Fingers. Together, they work to save the burrowing owls from being bulldozed. Overall, a great movie. I recommend it to anyone who likes to see a nice story of friendship. Two thumbs up for Hoot!
