From the best-selling children's novel by Carl Hiaasen comes this larger-than-life story of three kids who answer the call of the wild by protecting a family of endangered miniature owls. But when a housing development threatens the fragile species, the threesome must learn to think big, break some rules and take a stand. With a soundtrack featuring new music by Jimmy Buffett and starring Luke Wilson (Charlie's Angels), Logan Lerman (Jack & Bobby) and Cody Linley (Cheaper by the Dozen) this fun-filled eco-adventure escapade will delight kids and adults alike.

Sweet, clumsy family film about saving owls.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know the film concerns a corporation's illegal effort to build a restaurant on protected land. To stop a saboteur, the local corporate employee sets mousetraps and sends out trained attack dogs. The kids who are trying to stop the building also engage in illegal activities, such as setting loose alligators and cottonmouth snakes, deflating tires, spray-painting a police cruiser, organizing a town meeting under false pretenses, and tying up the villain in a closet. The company boss lies, cheats, and treats his girlfriend callously. Kids and adults use mildly obnoxious language ("dork," "sucks"). A chaste flirtation develops between the boy and girl protagonists.
