  1. Hoot

    Hoot is a 2006 American family comedy film, based on Carl Hiaasen's novel of the same name, and starring Logan Lerman. It was directed by Wil Shriner, and produced by New Line Cinema and Walden Media. Hoot was released on May 5, 2006. The film is about a group of children trying to save a burrowing owl habitat from destruction. The habitat is located on the intended construction site of a pancake house. The greedy and corrupt developer of the project intends to proceed regardless of the environmental damage it would cause. Hoot features live burrowing owls and music by Jimmy Buffett. Buffett is also listed as a co-producer, and he played the role of Mr. Ryan, the science teacher, in the movie. The film was generally regarded as unsuccessful in its initial theatrical run, and received largely negative to middle-rated reviews from notable film critics and film-review websites.
