Now, THIS looks like an interesting movie.
Based on this book:
I have always thought that people in OUR hobby were nuts, but then so were people in other hobbies as well.
Perhaps there is a script floating around for "Achtung, Schweinhund!" also? We can only hope.

Probably not. Just the title "might offend someone"

Aw, come on. Everything offends someone!
And if you go uber-PC, you offend people's intelligence.

I just read up on this, because my wife and I just watched the DVD last night. I liked it. Especially after watching "Love Comes Softly", directed by Michael Landon Jr, the night before. One is in your face drama with zero surprises, i.e. a boring, predictable plot. The other is comedy, about geeks, spun convincingly as high adventure, with big name comic actors, yet is subtle and keeps you wondering exactly what kind of film you are watching. David Frankel is a more subtle director, I must suppose. (I liked The Devil Wears Prada, too.) So perhaps this is a comparison of directors more than anything else. (Although the budgetary restraints on "Love Comes Softly" are obvious, and "Big Year" had a good budget of c. $41 USD million.)

They lost $35 USD-million on the film. Just imagine how many baby birds could have been fed with all that money.

It's about characters, Mithy. The bird watching is just a vehicle. And a very well presented vehicle it is too. I've never been into birds. But nonetheless the bird stuff is interesting. Presented by John Cleese, how could it be otherwise?………..
