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
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!
