Hollywood finally gets around to following up Carl Hiassen's infamous novel-to-movie Striptease with, oddly enough, this adaptation of the writer's award-winning kids' book. A young boy (Logan Lerman from "Jack & Bobby") moves from Montana to Florida where he joins forces with a few other kids to stop an evil land developer (Tim Blake Nelson) from destroying the habitat of some endangered owls. Luke Wilson shows up as the clueless but good-natured sheriff. Sun-damaged crooner Jimmy Buffet (who produced this film) also makes an appearance. The film has a decent ecological message, but isn't much fun for the adults. 90 minutes PG.
