I wasn't sure if this film had supernatural overtones or not - as the three brothers at the centre of the story go around America filming wildlife, sometimes animals that were small and harmless turn into ravenous beasts when we see them through the viewfinder.

It's not a good sign for a movie if you don't even understand whether the magical element belongs or not, but the rest of this tale it cute if not outstanding as the trio of attractive teens go across the country to film wildlife and become naturalists.

As I learned a long time after seeing it, it was a biopic of sorts about three real-life documentarian brothers, which probably accounts for a good part of what I didn't understand about it.
