Based on Carl Hiaasen's best-selling novel, Hoot follows the adventures of three teens who fight to save endangered owls from being bulldozed over. Get the review of Hoot here!

Hoot - Bully Meets Its Prey

After moving towns and changing schools more times than he can remember, Roy Eberhardt (Logan Lerman) is tired of being the new kid on the block. This time, he moves from Montana to Florida, where he immediately earns the nickname Cowgirl and gets beat on by the school bully. But life starts to look a little better after he meets Mullet Fingers, a runaway, and his step-sister Beatrice (Brie Larson), who is the toughest girl in school.

Hoot - Who Gives a Hoot?

Roy finds out that Mullet Fingers and Beatrice are on a mission to save a bunch of burrowing owls, whose home is about to be flattened by a pancake chain! Before they have a chance to build another restaurant right on top of the owl's habitat, the three teens set off one sabotage after another, like unleashing poisonous snakes and sticking alligators into the Porta-Potty at the construction site!

Hoot - A H-owl of Laughs

In case you didn't know, the burrowing owl is an elusive creature that makes its home in the ground and rarely comes out during the day. So Hoot gives you an up-close-and-personal look at these really cute animals. Aside from the owls, some of the best and funniest scenes come from Luke Wilson, who plays a dumber-than-dumb cop trying to catch the vandalizing culprits.

Hoot - Bottom Line

Hoot feels more like an after-school special on TV and that's exactly where you should watch it - on TV. Wait for it to hit DVD shelves and rent it on your next family movie night. It's worth checking out, especially to see the adorable owls that even avid birdwatchers have a hard time getting a glimpse of!

Sales of old console still persists.Many games are released for said new console. People buy more of that new console, but games for the old console still arrive.More games for the new one, less games for the old one.The old console doesn't become popular anymore.Rinse and repeat.Who agrees? Well....... :( sorry... I like old consoles(well....some.....)  and new ones because they're like updates! Like the wii. Now theres a wii u! but still, its true, what you said!

    Ansel Elgort. I've seen The Fault in Our Stars twice already, and he's still adorable. Also, Nat Wolff and Logan Lerman.
