'Hoot'

"Hoot" is a film about three middle school children who try to save a burrowing owl habitat from being bulldozed by a developer who intends to turn the site into a pancake house. The children successfully protect the owl habitat, making this a great movie to prove the point that children can make a difference. Jimmy Buffet fans will be pleased to learn that he composed the soundtrack for "Hoot."
