Goofs

A big deal is made of Ron's life bird species, a Prairie Falcon. Towards the end of the movie, when he finally sees his "life bird", the bird shown in the movie is clearly a Peregrine Falcon, not a Prairie Falcon. The call that leads him to the bird is also not a Prairie Falcon's call. See more »

User Reviews

 
By far the North American Comedy film of the year in 2014!
3 September 2014 | by homelandmanagementSee 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!
