Hoot is flatly directed by talk-show-host-turned-sitcom-director Wil Shriner, but the young actors are spirited and appealing, and the movie's low-key anti-establishment posture is vastly preferable to the knee-jerk fulminations of a Michael Moore.
This movie is awesome,yet so underrated.
One of Brie Larson's bear films.
I do miss the days when she did do films like this.
She used to communicate with her fans back then too.
The Book and The Film is great and I wouldn't change nothing about it except me be there then.
Having never read the book, I still found this movie enjoyable. Sure, not everything is good (Luke Wilson's portrayal as a hapless cop seems out of place in the movie, and some acting is suspect), but nonetheless, Hoot is a touching, warm-hearted film that everyone should enjoy.
From the filmmakers of the clever adventurous western film "Holes" bring us another film adaptation called 'Hoot' Starring Logan Lerman, Brie Larson and Cody Linley. Director Will Shriner's adapted screenplay is not well made and the film misses elements in Hiaasen's best selling novel, Lerman does a B level acting and Luke Wilson looks clueless as an officer (I could imagine better actors playing this role). Fans of the book will be disappointed as I was watching Shriner's flat direction ruin the adaptation. But the film's message is caring and important for children, the film looks gorgeous but the film falls flat like a pancake don't let Hiaasen's film fool you! Grade C-
