WALLA & Friends Present a 2011 Bird Watching Comedy



Monday, June 8 at 6:45 p.m.

at the West Lafayette Public Library

100 minutes, PG

Three men find that they have come to a turning point. Stu (Steve Martin) faces a late-life crisis, Kenny (Owen Wilson) is in the grip of a midlife crisis, and Brad (Jack Black) is wallowing in a no-life crisis. Determined to kick-start their stagnant lives, Stu, Kenny and Brad decide to enter a prestigious birding contest. During the course of one calendar year, the three friendly rivals criss-cross North America in a quest to count more species of birds than anyone else. Please call or come into the Library to learn the title of this film: 765-743-2261.
