Here is the plot description for “The Big Year”:

Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson are at a crossroads. One is experiencing a mid-life crisis, another a late-life crisis and the third a far-from-ordinary no-life crisis.

From David Frankel (the director of “The Devil Wears Prada” and “Marley & Me”) comes a sophisticated comedy about three friendly rivals who – tired of being ruled by obligations and responsibilities – dedicate a year to following their dreams. Their big year takes them on a cross-country journey of wild and life-changing adventures.

The movie trailer for “The Big Year” can be watched now below.

Yes I have, and that’s why

Yes I have, and that’s why I’m looking forward to watch this movie because it’s about “searching for something”… So, that’s basically me being ready to go on with my life and take it to next step, which is essentially searching for the next big adventure or episode.
