The Big Year
Comedic Icons Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson Star in the Hilarious Outdoor Adventure Coming to Blu-ray and DVD January 31!
Bird loving duo Brad and Stu become instant, yet unlikely, friends on their quest to top the spot in The Big Year annual event. Here, we’ll list the top films in which a couple of opposites become unlikely friends including Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman in The Shawshank Redemption, Jack Nicholson and Greg Kinnear in As Good as it Gets and “Chunk” and “Sloth” from The Goonies.
Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson portray three men from very different walks of life, facing a mid-life crisis, a work-life crisis and a no-life crisis. In the biggest competition of their lives, they undertake an unforgettable trek through North America, engaging in hilarious and bizarre adventures and forming friendships that will last a lifetime!
In the classic film The Goonies, Chunk and Sloth are literally forced together in a sort of mutual punishment by the demented Fratellis. Initially enemies, Chunk and Sloth quickly become friends over a mutual love of the candy bar Baby Ruth. The horribly deformed Sloth and the funny child Chunk are certainly a strange pair, but they band together to save The Goonies and become unlikely heroes.
In Toy Story, the film that revolutionized both CG animation and children’s films, old cowboy Woody is at odds with the shiny, new space range Buzz Lightyear. Because of Buzz’s delusions that he is an actual space ranger (and not a toy), and the fact that their owner is giving him preference over Woody, Woody plots against Buzz. Following a series of mishaps, Buzz and Woody are forced to work together to escape and return to their owner and, along the way, they become lifelong friends.
