Or, how about receiving a DVD in the mail or coming home from the local video store (we have a fabulous one!) only to remark, "Why look at this? Wonder what this is about?"
Well, that's how I found myself with The Big Year. And what a Big Surprise! Don't let the opening to this trailer bother you. The performances from this cast of clowns are actually restrained, slightly silly, but a tad on the poignant side. I like all of these actors in their own ways for different reasons. But I was delightfully surprised at their collective energy here. And I am growing more enamored of the more mature, and muted Jack Black (remember Bernie from a few posts ago?) Take a look and give it a try. This was a serendipitous find for us. Besides, it's migration season after all!
