    A sweetheart of a film, whimsical and touching. It positions itself somewhere between a slice of life and a screwball comedy.

    Hurt is quietly affecting as Dave Purcell, a fine chef but a lousy businessman whose sticksville cafe, the Auk, is named after a rare, possibly extinct kind of duck.

    Has more than enough charm to make it memorable. Hurt shows a gentleness and subtlety that's interesting to watch in this phase of his career.

    For the record, Rare Birds doesn't even fly as a birder's special, since Tasseter's Sulfurious Duck is a fictional species. Now, if they'd seen a Eurasian Wigeon, then we'd be talking.
  5. Rendered bland and frustrating by its endless attempts to make the odd odder.

If I were you I would give this movie a chance. If you have an open mind and a sense of humor (and a love for all that is Canadian) WATCH IT!!! Expand
