‘The Big Year’ is a mild and offense-free comedy that though noticeably glossy and loaded with potential, still almost looks and feels like a nature documentary. That isn’t a bad thing really but if you have a film that boasts an impressive cast led by comedians Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson and features breathtaking landscapes and wildlife (mostly birds) that are always picture-ready, you’d be expecting more than a mediocre output.

It’s one of the few musical comedies out there that really has a lot of things to offer. From a pudgy, washed up, man-child lead who definitely knows how to rock to the awe-inspiring, precociously talented kids; carefree storyline to electrifying music; you name it, ‘School of Rock’ has got it all covered. It’s how musical comedies should be--cathartic, infectious and inspirational.
